Short summary
Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is one of the very common diseases with no viable cure. However, it can be controlled by regulating the daily sugar intake. Diabetic patients need to prick their fingers a few times a day for monitoring sugar levels. To find an alternative, researchers have been working for decades on the development of a true non-invasive technique. In this effort, we developed a cost-effective non-invasive technique for measuring blood sugar levels using capacitance spectroscopy.
