This article focuses on the design and testing of a compact implantable antenna sensor for continuous glucose monitoring. The main attraction of this article is the verification of an antenna as a glucose sensor. For this particular application, the antenna sensor operating at the WMTS band is demonstrated. This structure is simulated in the Ansys HFSS tool and tested with the blood phantom model with different glucose concentrations. The antenna was fabricated using an easily available low-cost FR-4 substrate with compact dimensions of 25×25×1.6 mm3. The proposed structure demonstrates excellent radiation properties at the resonating frequency of 1.4 GHz with excellent -10 dB bandwidth of 115 MHz. Also, it gives the gain of -12.5 dB. As a sensor, this design shows a sensitivity of 13.1 KHz per mg/dl glucose.
