Diabetes Without Needles: Non-invasive Diagnostics and Health Management provides a comprehensive and objective compilation of the most promising noninvasive methods for glucose monitoring, including an in-depth analysis of their advantages and disadvantages in terms of biochemical processes. The latest advances in the field are discussed, including methods such as optical measurements, electrochemical measurements, exhaled breath analysis, direct measurements of glucose in the blood using noninvasive techniques, and the indirect analysis of biomarkers that are related to the glycemia. The book's author also presents recommendations for future research directions in this field. This book is a valuable resource for researchers in the areas of diabetes, noninvasive methods and diagnostics development.

About the Author

Artur Rydosz

Dr. Artur Rydosz received an M.Sc. and Ph.D. degree in electronics engineering from the AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow, Poland in 2009 and 2014, respectively. His current research interests include gas sensors and micropreconcentrators, LTCC, MEMS technology, and gas sensors system applications. He is also interested in the PVD method of the fabrication of various sensing materials with special emphasis on the volatile organic compounds detection in exhaled human breath, for example, as a potential tool for noninvasive measurements of several diseases, such as diabetes. Since 2019 he works as a professor in the Department of Electronics AGH and serves as the Vice-chair of the Joint Chapter AP03/AES10/MTT17, IEEE Poland Section. Currently, he is working as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC), Spain.
