Fructosamine

Fructosamine

Fructosamine is a compound that results from a reaction between fructose and ammonia or an amine. This test measures the total amount of fructosamine (glycated protein) in the blood. It is used to monitor the blood glucose control in diabetic patients. Unlike the HbA1c test, which reflects glucose control over a longer duration (two to three months), fructosamine reflects glucose levels over a shorter period, typically two to three weeks.

The Fructosamine test provides information about the overall glucose control in the last two to three weeks and helps the doctors adjust the treatment plans for diabetics, particularly those with rapid changes in their glucose levels. It can be useful in situations where HbA1c can't provide reliable results, such as in cases of hemolytic anemia or other conditions that shorten the lifespan of red blood cells.
