Abstract: Serum fructosamine levels in women at pregnancy (28 weeks' gestation) were determined. The women (n = 99) also participated in an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) with a 75g liquid glucose load, to determine their glucose tolerance. At 32 weeks' gestation, seventy-nine of them repeated the oral glucose tolerance test and fructosamine measurement. Results showed that fructosamine levels in pregnant women with normal glucose tolerance (2.20 +/- 0.19 mmol/l, n = 76), were not statistically different from those with glucose intolerance (gestational diabetes: 2.19 +/- 0.22 mmol/l, n = 23) at 28 weeks' and also 32 weeks' gestation. However, serum fructosamine levels in pregnant women were lower than those in non-pregnant subjects. Serum fructosamine measurement is not a sufficiently sensitive test for diagnosis of gestational diabetes.
