I am a mom to a 6 year old who was dx at 3. I had an idea for a product...I doubt I would ever act on it but was curious whether teens would hate it or be o.k with it.
Right now, as you can imagine, I totally control my son's d-care ...but I know that around the corner I will be letting go and handing it over to him. What would you think of a glucometer that automatically texted your bg to your parents each time you checked. This would be for like a 10 years old- 16 years old. From a parents point of view heres how I see it.
I would always know how he was doing d-wise so when I would see him I could talk about other stuff instead of his numbers or asking when the last time he checked.
He would never feel like I was looking over his shoulder when he was checking or I wouldn't have to bug him to download his numbers so I could check on him - it would just always be there - out in the open
I would have to resist freaking if I saw a 30 or a 400.
He might feel as if his privacy was breached.
Thanks for any feedback,
