Joseph Rihel, after struggling to manage his diabetes for more than a decade, learned to control the disease using a new tool: personalized coaching and monitoring via his mobile phone. Rihel entered his glucose reading into the phone several times a day for a year to help test WellDoc Inc.’s DiabetesManager application. When the blood-sugar level was too low or high, the 69-year-old retiree received a return message with specific advice on adjusting his diet or medicine.
