ABSTRACT

Two models of diabetes, alloxan and streptozotocin, were used in the study to verify the influence of both on the optical and diffusive properties of skin. Kinetics of collimated transmittance of control and diabetics samples immersed in aqueous 70%-glycerol solution was measured and then processed for estimation of glycerol diffusion coefficients in skin. In the result the slower glycerol diffusion was observed for both diabetes models.
