======= DOI: 10.22937/IJCSNS.2020.20.08.4 ======= In recent years, the world has witnessed rampant growth in science and technology. Internet has been through a lot of revolutions to assume its present form. Being a key player in the field of network and connectivity, it has become a part and parcel of the human society. It is now the time to connect with the objects that humans depend on the most, to broaden the functionality it has to offer by what is popularly known as Internet of Things (IoT). Healthcare, being one of its major areas of application is turning out to be a boon for people[6,7]. The statistical analysis on diabetes based on the current Indian population is expected to double by 2025. The objective of this paper is to design a device based on IoT which provides a consistent technique to measure blood sugar level. It has been established that the level of ketone in the breath is directly linked to the sugar level of a person. For this purpose, the device collects the sample of the breath when the patient blows into the mouthpiece and senses the level of ketone in addition to the temperature and humidity levels of the breath that minimizes the need for any human interference.
