Abstract

The aim of our study was to evaluate the usefulness of fructosamine measurement (Fram) in cord blood as an index of glucose metabolism in the last week of pregnancy in infants of diabetic mothers. In newborns and their respective mothers Fram values were surprisingly greater in N than in IDM and IGDM and neonatal and maternal values appeared to be strictly related. While intrauterine growth was associated with metabolic control indexes of 2nd and 3rd trimester gestation. Fram value appeared positively correlated to cord insulin. In conclusion Fram level appears as a good index of glucose metabolic control of the last week of pregnancy and it is associated to cord insulin level and to neonatal hypoglycemia.
