Abstract(s)Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a metabolic disorder resulting from a defect in insulin secretion and/or insulin resistance, which results in a high serum glucose levels and disturbance of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. It is one of the most common chronic diseases and when it is poorly controlled it triggers other acute and chronic complications. Herein, it is presented a specific Point-of-Care Testing (POC]) device for diagnosis/monitoring of DM. It is based on an optical analysis, which allows a high sensitivity comparing with the currently available electrochemical detection POCT DM devices. Moreover, it is a portable device, with small dimensions (200 mm x 100 mm x 60 mm), low-cost production and easy to operate. These characteristics render this device a potential useful tool to improve the proper monitoring of DM.
