Answer

Answer

A serum fructosamine (a glycated protein) level, similar to a hemoglobin A1c level, enables assessment of long-term glycemic control in patients with diabetes mellitus. [1, 2, 3, 4]

Normal values vary in relation to the serum albumin concentration and are 200-285 µmol/L, when the serum albumin concentration level is 5 g/dL. [4] Reduction in serum albumin lowers the serum fructosamine value.
