One of the biggest health challenges of 21 st century is diabetics due to its exponential increase in the diabetics patients in the age group of 20-79 years. To prevent the complication due to diabetics it is essential to monitor the blood glucose level continuously. Most of the regular glucose measurement systems are invasive in nature. Invasive methods cause pain, time consumption, high cost and potential risk of spreading infection diseases. Therefore there is a great demand to have reliable cost effective and comfortable non invasive system for the detection of blood glucose level continuously. The proposed method is based on the direct effect of glucose on the scattering properties of the organ. Glucose decreases the mismatch in refractive index between scatterers and their surrounding media, leading to a smaller scattering coefficient and, consequently, a shorter optical path. The reduction in scattering is due to an increase in glucose concentration. As a result, with the growing concentration of glucose, fewer photons are absorbed and the light intensity increases. In the present work, we have used PPG technique. An algorithm was developed from the PPG data for monitoring blood glucose. The result obtained from this technique was compared with ARKRAY, Glucocard tm01-mini and found good agreement. © 2012 IEEE.
