Abstract
Diabetes is a disease with no cure, but can be controlled to improve the quality of life of sufferers. Currently there are means to control, but this means they have the disadvantage that in order to measure the amount of glucose is necessary to take blood samples that are painful. This paper presents a system for measuring glucose using non-invasive optical techniques: using absorption spectroscopy and polarimetry technique. It shows the results obtained from experiments done on samples containing distilled water and different amounts of glucose to study the absorption coefficient of glucose with both techniques. Water is used because it is one of the main elements in the blood and interferes with glucose measurement. This experiment will develop a prototype to measure glucose through a non-invasive technique.
