Respected Ma'm
Thanks for writing to us.
Fructosamine is a blood product formed by the process of glycation. it is also called AGE (advanced glycation end) product. In clinical medicine it used to look at the average blood glucose in last 3 weeks. It is considered to be normal in the range of 1.61-2.68 mmol/L. It is not clear from your query that what unit was used in your assay. Values higher than this may suggest diabetes mellitus in suggestive clinical scenarios.
SGOT is a liver enzyme and may be high in variety of conditions. However a rise less than 3 times the upper limit is usually benign.
Globulin is a blood protein and may be raised in condition where adequate albumin in body is not being formed like liver diseases.
You must consult your internist for further evaluation.
Sincerely
Sukhvinder
