Introduction: Prolonged hyperglycemia is known to cause an increase in levels of non enzymatically glycosylated proteins which is thought to contribute to long term complications of disease by enzyme inactivation, inhibition of binding of regulatory molecules, decreased proteolysis and cross-linking of glycated proteins. In present study, fructosamine and albumin levels were measured in normal healthy controls and Diabetic patients before and after supplementation of Multi-vitamin multi-mineral tablets. Serum fructosamine level was decreased significantly in diabetic patients after multi-vitamin multi-mineral supplementation.
