Paper Abstract

It has been established the importance of a constant glucose monitoring in order to keep a regular control for diabetes patients. Several medical studies accept the necessity of exploring alternatives for the traditional digital glucometer, given the pain and discomfort related to this technique, which can lead to a compromised control of the disease. Several efforts based on the application of IR spectroscopy had been done with favorable, yet not conclusive results. Therefore it’s necessary to apply a comprehensive and interdisciplinary study based on the biochemical and optical properties of the glucose in the human body, in order to understand the interaction between this substance, its surroundings and IR light. These study propose a comprehensive approach of the glucose and IR light interaction, considering and combining important biochemical, physiological and optical properties, as well as some machine learning techniques for the data analysis. The results of this work would help to define the right parameters aiming to obtain an optical glucose quantification system and protocol.
