To evaluate the possible interest of the dosage of glycated plasma proteins in the diagnosis of glucidic intolerance, OGTT with determination of glycaemia and insulinaemia, HbA1c and fructosamine was determined in 6 normal and 35 obese subjects. On the basis of OGTT the subjects were subdivided into 20 obese with normal glucose tolerance, 7 with IGT and 8 with DM. In the comparison between all the subjects there was a significantly higher plasma fructosamine concentration in the obese with DM ( p <0.001). No difference was noticed between the normal subjects and the other two classes of obese patients. This suggests that the evaluation of glycated plasma proteins is scarcely sure in a screening plan.
