Abstract

Nowadays over 400 million adults suffer from diabetes worldwide. By 2040 this number will rise to 642 million. In addition, more than 300 million adults have impaired glucose tolerance, which means a high risk of developing the disease in the future. Also, many patients are undiagnosed, which results in severe complications. It is an important social problem, because from the moment of recognition the treatment lasts a lifetime. Currently, mainly devices based on invasive, electrochemical or photosensitive methods to measure glucose concentration in small blood samples, are offered on the market. Hence, the development of a new non-invasive glucose sensor is a desirable goal. Such measurement system should be cost-effective, comfortable and allowing continuous monitoring of glucose levels in blood. There are many reports on new, fast and highly sensitive methods and the most common research direction relates to spectroscopic techniques. Some of them are presented in this paper.
