Research published in the journal Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology revealed fructosamine and glycated albumin levels greater than the 95th percentile were tied to increased risk of diabetes, retinopathy and chronic kidney disease. The results suggest that although HbA1C remains the best marker of diabetes onset, evaluating fructosamine and glycated albumin levels may also predict the odds of diabetes and microvascular conditions.
