According to WHO, 420 million adults worldwide are suffering from diabetes. The diabetic patient should regularly verify and control their blood glucose levels. However, the existing blood glucose meters use a needle to collect blood, thus causing problems such as pain and infections. A non-invasive blood glucose meter is a measuring instrument that can avoid these problems, but such an instrument has not been developed to date. Diabetic patients should ensure blood glucose control and exercise therapy: however, the difficulty of management and lack of guidance on exercise therapy are problematic issues that need to be overcome. In this study, a non-invasive blood glucose meter and blood glucose control system has been developed, which can be used along with a healthcare sensor equipped with a non-invasive blood glucose measurement function.
