  • Some optical methods for non-invasive blood glucose monitoring are introduced, and the advantages of infrared spectroscopy applied to the non-invasive blood glucose monitoring are presented. The main problems of infrared spectroscopy in the non-invasive blood glucose monitoring are analyzed, including complicated transmission of light in tissue, weak absorption signal of glucose, overlapped absorption spectra of different biochemistry components, serious interference of background absorption and so on. Recent advances of infrared spectroscopy in non-invasive blood glucose monitoring are summarized and the methods to restrain the interference of background absorption are pointed out. It suggests that the tissue fluid can replace the blood applied to the measurement of blood glucose. Finally, the paper gives further research trends of this field, which includes describing the transmission of light in tissue accurately, measuring the spectra of epidermis or the superficial layer between epidermis and dermis, improving instrument SNR, and building the calibration model for the absorption band of blood glucose.
