I was looking through past years' November facts, and I see that I wrote about fructosamine levels in hair (which can in fact be used to figure out a good estimation of average blood sugar during the time the hair was growing) but I didn't mention...

Fructosamine is often used instead of the HbA1c to monitor blood sugar control in diabetics whenever there's a reason to believe that the HbA1c will not be accurate in that person, for example, if the person has been very anemic, or if the person insists that their blood sugars have been much higher (or lower) than the A1c indicates.
