Glucose Detection from Skin Dielectric Measurements

(p.388) 3.8 Glucose Detection from Skin Dielectric Measurements
Dielectric Relaxation in Biological Systems

This chapter describes a biomedical application of dielectric spectroscopy for glucose detection from skin measurements. The chapter begins with a brief overview of diabetes as a disease and its long- and short-term effects on the human body. We describe the physiological effects of glucose changes. This is given to highlight the biophysical changes that are associated with the disease and how dielectric spectroscopy can be utilized to monitor the impact of such changes. Then, requirements that measurement sensors need to meet are reviewed. This includes details of frequency range and sensor characteristic geometry required in order to permit non-invasive continuous glucose monitoring using such dielectric-based sensor systems. Finally, we describe a roadmap to future developments for such a system.

Keywords:   non-invasive measurements, continuous monitoring, glucose monitoring, multi-sensor, skin, underlying tissue, perturbing factors, diabetes mellitus
