Abstract

Background: A better understanding of parent and adolescent interest in using smartphone technology for type 1 diabetes (T1D) management is needed prior to developing technology-based interventions for ethnic minorities. This study examined access to and interest in technology-based programs for T1D in primarily Hispanic adolescents and their parents. Subjects and Methods: During a scheduled clinic visit, adolescents with T1D (n = 50; 52% female; 13.6 ± 2.0 years old; 74% Hispanic; hemoglobin A1c = 8.9 ± 1.7%) and their parents (n = 49; 54% household income
