  1. Fulltext. Association between serum fructosamine and mortality in elderly women : The study of osteoporotic fractures.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Serum fructosamine levels can be used to estimate long-term serum glucose values and can be measured in frozen serum.

    The authors examined whether fructosamine levels were associated with mortality in a cohort of 9,704 white women (>65 years of age) recruited from September 1986 to October 1988 at four clinical centers in the United States.

    A random sample of women who had died during a mean of 6 years of follow-up (n=55) was compared with randomly selected controls (n=276,54 of whom had died).

    Fructosamine assays were performed blinded to vital status.

    Hazard ratios with 95% confidence intervals were adjusted for age, clinical center, smoking, hypertension, and serum albumin and cholesterol levels.

    Each standard deviation (46 mumol) increase in fructosamine level was associated with a 1.3-fold (95% confidence interval (Cl) 1.0-1.6, p=0.04) increased rate of all-cause mortality, including a 1.5-fold (95% CI 1.0-2.1, p=0.03) increase in cardiovascular disease mortality.

    Elevated fructosamine levels (>285 mumol/liter) were associated with a 4.3-fold (95% CI 1.6-12, p=0.004) increased rate of cardiovascular mortality ; in women without a history of diabetes, the hazard ratio was 4.6 (95% Cl 1.3-16, p=0.02).

    Fructosamine level, or another indicator of glycemia, should be included when the risk of cardiovascular disease among older patients is evaluated.
