What was the outcome with your doctor?  Did they give you the results.  Your mALb is high.  The range you are in is above 30 where normal ends but in the microalbuminuria  range.  Microalbuminuria is moderate increase in the level of urine albumin. It occurs when the kidney leaks small amounts of albumin into the urine, in other words, when an abnormally high permeability for albumin in the glomerulus of the kidney occurs.  This is of really huge importance with your diabetes diagnosis as it is a predictor of poor renal outcome with the disease.  You want to be aware so they can head that off.  https://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/31/Supplement_2/S194  It's not too high yet!  Keep that in mind.  And in our modern world, they DO have medications to treat it.  

Come back and let me know the latest.  
I saw the numbers on my website info after my dr visit and she has not addressed it at all....  that is why I posted on here as I was not sure what it meant.  
Have you been back in touch with your doctor?  Tried to give an explanation based on what you said but that doesn't compare to a doctor going over it with you.  What did they say?
