Abstract

Monitoring blood glucose levels is an important procedure for any diabetic subject. This presently requires a daily routine of multiple finger stabs and consequently many subjects apply minimal control risking medical complications. Current technology is moving towards techniques for non-invasive monitoring. We present one possible technique here, pulses laser photoacoustic spectroscopy. Results are shown for tests on diabetic and normal subjects, demonstrating the ability to monitor changes in blood glucose levels within the physiological range. In addition, instrumentation is described which offers a portable monitoring unit.
