In the real-world, lifestyle and environmental barriers can adversely impact self-management of diabetes. Emerging health technologies such as mobile diabetes management apps can potentially help people with diabetes navigate such barriers with features such as reminders for self-monitoring blood glucose (SMBG) checks and medications.

In the current study, we assess whether the use of reminders features corresponded with improved behavioral and glycemic outcomes in the real world.
