Radio frequency (RF) microwave can be used to predict glucose concentration in a sample. This paper presents preliminary results in determining the concentration by measuring relative permittivity in the solutions of distilled water, saline, human serum, and human blood containing glucose. In the experiments, sensitivity for detecting glucose concentration in blood solutions was almost 57 mg/dl at the frequency of approximately 5.8 GHz.
