965Fructosamine is formed due to a non-enzymatic Maillard reaction between glucose and amino acid residues of proteins. In diabetic patients, elevated blood glucose levels correlate with increased fructosamine formation. Glycated serum proteins (GSP; glycated albumins; fructosamine) are a medium term indicator of diabetic control (2-3 weeks).
