|Indication||Only to be used to monitor glycaemic control in patients with diabetes where HbA1c cannot used. HbA1c may be unmeasurable in patients with a haemoglobin variant or may be invalid where red cell survival is altered eg due to anaemia. Serum fructosamine CANNOT be used to diagnose or exclude diabetes because there are no evidence based diagnostic cut-offs.|
|Additional Info||Requests will be rejected if patient does not already have a diagnosis of diabetes.|
|Interpretation||Serum fructosamine concentration reflects blood glucose concentration over the preceding 2-3 weeks.
Serum fructosamine results may be invalid where plasma protein composition is abnormal e.g. nephrotic syndrome, severe liver cirrhosis, paraproteinaemia, untreated thyroid disease.|
