Abstract Noninvasive blood glucose monitoring absorption spectroscopy thesis been long envisioned to serve as an invaluable tool in the treatment of diabetes. The current invasive method makes it difficult for diabetic absorption spectroscopy thesis to perform frequent blood glucose measurements and maintain better control of their glucose levels, crucial in reducing the risks of complications.
In this thesis, the use of the near infrared absorption spectroscopy is proposed and investigated. The light radiation is envisioned to be transmitted through thin tissue such as the webbing tissue between the thumb and the index finger.
The main technical difficulties are identified to be those caused by complex interferences from other physiological variables and the weak near infrared glucose signals. Thus, the success of such a method hinges on adequately isolating the glucose signals from among the interferences as well as on obtaining high essay immunization synthesis spectra.
The first objective of this thesis is to provide deeper quantitative understanding to the challenges described above. Such knowledge is key to developing clinically accurate and robust devices. This objective is accomplished through a series of systematic experimental and analytical investigations involving glucose measurements in various biological sample matrices.
