Fructosamines are formed when glucose reacts with proteins in your blood. The serum test for fructosamines in your blood measures how much fructosamines are present. The serum test measures your average blood glucose level over the past 2 to 3 weeks. The serum test is used to track short-term glucose control in diabetics. It’s especially useful in situations where your average blood glucose over the past 3 months isn’t as accurate or reliable as it should be. For example, if you’re pregnant, have anemia, have a hemoglobin variant, or have recently changed your diabetes treatment.
