Non-Invasive Blood Glucose Level Monitoring System for Diabetes Patient using Near Infrared Spectroscopy
Diabetes is one of the leading non communicable diseases affecting public health. Though it is termed as a deficiency rather than a disease, uncontrolled diabetes will lead to complications resulting in renal failure/liver failure/ heart-attack/loss of sight or foot problems leading to amputation if not diagnosed, monitored and treated on time. In order to avoid these complications blood glucose level should be periodically monitored. Conventional methods used for this purpose uses sharp needle which leads to loss of blood and has a risk of infections to the patients. In order to overcome such problems, a non-invasive glucose monitoring system is necessary. In this study, we propose a design, a cost effective and non-invasive glucose monitoring device using near infrared spectroscopy techniques.
