Mobile Apps for Diabetic Truck DriversToday’s truck drivers rely on their cell phones for much more than just communicating with family and dispatchers. They use mobile phones for finding good deals on fuel, finding Redbox kiosks, listening to music, cutting calories, watching videos and even tracking mileage.

One thing mobile phones can do that often isn’t discussed is helping truck drivers monitor their health signs when they have serious medical conditions like diabetes. So we set our resident health consultant Abby online and had her find the three best mobile apps for diabetics. Here’s what she found.
