In this paper, a design of truly non-invasive continuous blood glucose monitoring sensor which uses a pair of microwave split ring resonators is presented, operating around 1.4 GHz. The rings are made from silver coated copper wire. In addition to the sensing ring, a reference ring is added which operates at a higher frequency. This is used to take into account the temperature dependent expansion of the ring and to calibrate out any effects due to changes in temperature. The proposed sensor made up of the pair of rings is directly attached onto the skin in the abdominal area by using an adhesive patch. For validation, we have tested the proposed sensor simultaneously with two commercially available sensors (blood strip and continuous glucose monitor) over 12 hour periods with 3 food events, with encouraging correlation of our blood glucose results with those of the commercial sensors.
