The Fructosamine test
is more efficient than the HbA1c test as it helps to control diabetes by providing information on a person's average blood glucose levels for the preceding 14-21 days.
was conducted using nitroblue tetrazolium method.
An alternative fructosamine test
may be used in these circumstances and it similarly reflects an average of blood glucose leves over the preceding 2-3 weeks.
Glycated proteins in serum: effect of their relative proportions on their alkaline reducing activity in the fructosamine test

LXN's InCharge kit is the only rapid fructosamine test
available for at-home use.
* glycosylated serum proteins -- One common test is the fructosamine test
, which gives information on glucose status over a one- to two-week period, and is good for watching short-term changes in glucose status during pregnancy or after major changes in diabetes therapy.
Serum glucose was determined by a glucose oxidaseperoxidase method (glucose test; Reanal), serum fructosamine (Roche Fructosamine Test
; Hoffmann-La Roche), blood hemoglobin Al, (DIAMAT; Bio-Rad), triglycerides (triglyceride GPO-PAP Test; Boehringer Mannheim), cholesterol (cholesterol CHOD-PAP Test; Boehringer Mannheim) on a Boehringer/Hitachi 717 analyzer.
