Monitor long-term blood sugar control at home
Diabetics will soon be able to monitor LONG-TERM blood sugar control at home.
There are two different ways to do this...a fructosamine test or a glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) test.
Fructosamine is formed when sugar combines with albumin and other serum proteins. This test reflects average blood glucose for the preceding 2 WEEKS...instead of 2 to 3 MONTHS like HbA1c.
