Title: Individual calibration of blood glucose for supporting noninvasive self-monitoring blood glucose

Abstract: A method is provided for calibrating a noninvasive glucose monitor for prospective noninvasive glucose determination. Spectroscopic transflectance readings are measured on the patient's skin using a noninvasive glucose monitor. The patient's blood glucose level is measured with an invasive glucose monitor. The noninvasive and invasive measurements are correlated to form an individual algorithm for each patient. Preferably, the position of the patient's skin with respect to the probe of the noninvasive monitor is spatially adjusted while collecting the transflectance measurements such that multiple readings are taken on the patient's skin. The measurements are preferably taken over a period of time and over a plurality of glucose levels in the patient.
