A high level of fructosamine in the blood means high average blood glucose levels in the past two to three weeks. The test is frequently repeated to track changes in fructosamine levels or when the HbA1C test is not reliable in certain medical conditions. It is wise to consult your doctor for a better interpretation of the result.
- A rise in fructosamine levels from normal to high may suggest that glucose management is inadequate.
- Blood glucose levels might also rise as a result of sickness or a lot of stress.
- A change in diet/medication and reassessment may be required to get the glucose under control.
A normal fructosamine level may suggest good glucose management and demonstrate the effectiveness of the present treatment strategy. Similarly, a shift from high to normal fructosamine levels might suggest that therapy adjustments were beneficial.
But this test is not recommended to diagnose diabetes.
