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!

PROs:

  • offers helpful reminders throughout the day
  • great to keep parents/caregivers in the loop on BG levels

CONs:

  • may encourage "helicopter parenting," i.e. too much hovering over a child's readings
