Design and Development of Breath Acetone Based Non-Invasive Blood Glucose Level Monitoring System
Diabetes has become one of the most persistent diseases with high diagnosis cost. The constant monitoring of blood glucose level is necessary for maintaining the health of the patients and to take preemptive measures before the onset of any other complications. The current invasive clinical techniques for monitoring blood glucose may lead to spreading of contagious disease. With the modernized world of embedded controllers and biomedical equipment, medical problems could be solved which may enhance the quality of life. Recent research has proven acetone as a biomarker for diabetes which has a strong correlation towards blood glucose. Thus, a reliable, instantaneous and non-invasive IoT based breath analyzer has been developed. TGS822 gas sensor which has sensitivity towards acetone was used for the measurement of acetone concentration in breath and glucose levels are uploaded to the cloud.
