Clinical Information:
The fructosamine test may be ordered whenever a health practitioner wants to monitor a person's average glucose levels over the past 2 to 3 weeks. It is primarily ordered when a diabetic treatment plan is being started or adjusted in order to monitor the effect of the change in diet, exercise, or medication.

The vast majority of people with diabetes  can be monitored using A1c test that reflect their glycemic control over the previous 2 to 3 months. Fructosamine testing can be useful during pregnancy  when the woman has diabetes, when a person's red blood cells have a shortened lifespan, and in some cases of people with abnormal forms of hemoglobin.
