The information that you present would be consistent with diabetic kidney disease, however I cannot make a specific diagnosis without performing a complete history and physical examination. An anion gap of 24 is a very high anion gap ( a normal anion gap is about 12. You should discuss this with your primary care physician (PCP). I suggest consultation with your husband’s PCP regarding his kidney disease and the reasons for the elevated anion gap.
