Development of non-invasive techniques to measure blood sugar level is strongly required. The application of millimeter waves has a great potentiality to realize the measuring technique. Nevertheless, the practical method of the technique is not yet reported. In this paper, a new technique is proposed to measure blood sugar level using millimeter waves. The technique proposed here is very rapid and safety way to obtain blood sugar level.
