Abstract [en]

A group of 34 diabetic men, with different degrees of diabetes complications, including skin changes, were studied by near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy and total body multi-frequency bio-impedance analyses (MFBIA-body). Skin reflectance spectra were measured with a fibre-optic probe in four locations (sites): hand, arm, leg and foot. As control subjects, a group of 23 healthy males were also measured. A combined multivariate analysis of the two types of spectrum was performed. It was concluded that the NIR method has the potential to detect diabetes-related skin conditions and also that the combination of the two techniques provides a higher potential for classification and discrimination of the skin conditions, with correct classification increasing from 63% to 85%.
