Abstract
We studied the temperature-controlled localized reflectance of the dorsal arm of diabetic and non-diabetic subjects. The thermo-optical response of human skin at small source-detector distances is related to the diabetic status of the subject. It was possible to segregate diabetic from non-diabetic data based on the values of μa, μs' and δ; and the change in their values (Δμa, Δμs', and Δδ) as a function of temperature. The segregation into diabetic and non-diabetic based on the thermal response of μa, μs' is consistent with cross-linking of vascular and tissue proteins by excess glucose during frequent hyperglycemic episodes.
