Review on Blood glucose measurement techniques

Abstract


Diabetes is a dangerous disease that needs to be regularly checked. The conventional and commonly used method to check glucose level is painful and expensive. Hence there is a need to look for other methods. These could be based on other fluids like tear-based glucometers, sweat-based glucometers or based on near-infrared spectroscopy. While all the above non-invasive procedures may have potential in the future, the most feasible method is that which involves near-infrared radiation. This paper describes the trends in the measurement of glucose levels and discusses the non-invasive technique of measurement of glucose.
