Abstract
This study is focused on the determination of refractive index of hemoglobin solution at different glucose concentrations using Abbe refractometer. It is shown that the changes of refractive index caused by glycation of hemoglobin may be observed using refractive index measurements. The refractive index measurements can be potentially applied for the evaluation of glycated hemoglobin amount.
