Abstract
Background: Chronic alcohol ingestion is one of the major causes of liver disease. Uncontrolled glucose concentration in chronic alcoholic liver disease will have poor prognosis. Hence, the study is undertaken to see markers of chronic glucose control, that is, serum fructosamine and glycated hemoglobin and their usefulness to show the severity of chronic alcoholic liver disease.

Aim and Objectives: The study is conducted to check that between glycated hemoglobin and fructosamine which is better to check glycemic control and severity/prognosis of chronic alcoholic liver disease.

Materials and Methods: 60 cases of chronic alcoholic liver disease patients of age group 20–70 years of both sexes with 30 age- and sex-matched healthy controls were taken. Cases were divided into non-complicated and complicated groups. Glycated hemoglobin was estimated by immunoturbidimetry method, serum fructosamine level was estimated by
colorimetry using nitro blue tetrazolium, SGOT was estimated by method by IFCC and serum total protein was estimated by biuret method.

Results: The mean concentration of HbA1c and serum total protein was decreased in both groups of cases compared to controls. The mean concentrations of serum fructosamine and SGOT were increased in both groups of cases. There was no significant difference in the mean value of serum total protein in non-complicated cases with controls. There was no significant difference in the mean value of HbA1c between non-complicated and complicated cases. SGOT was considered for correlation, it was found out that it had significant negative correlation with serum total protein, significant positive correlation with serum fructosamine, and no correlation with HbA1c. Significant negative correlation was found between serum total protein and serum fructosamine.

Conclusion: This study shows that serum fructosamine is a better marker to monitor chronic glucose control and severity of chronic alcoholic liver disease compared to HbA1c.

Key words: Chronic Alcoholic Liver Disease; Glycated Hemoglobin; Serum Fructosamine; SGOT; Serum Total Protein
