D-Mom Stacey Simms reviews ShugaTrak, a mobile app that sends glucose meter readings to designated people through text or email -- a great anxiety reducer for D-parents while their kids are away!
REVIEWER'S BREAKDOWN -
- offers helpful reminders throughout the day
- great to keep parents/caregivers in the loop on BG levels
- may encourage "helicopter parenting," i.e. too much hovering over a child's readings
Let us know what you think.
