Gi Bodyguard app
Gi Bodyguard app
- An app to track information about your digestive health - symptoms, food, medications and exercise.
This app allows users to record information related to their gut or bowel health such as stool (poo) details (form, colour, urgency, bloating), pain (location and severity), food and drinks consumed, weight, exercise, medications and medical history. Users can also set reminders to take medications and to renew prescriptions, and send (via email) a summary report to physicians or other medical professionals involved with their care. For a more detailed description of the app, see the app website(external link), on iTunes(external link) and for a detailed review, see reviews below.
✔ Log symptoms, stool frequency and consistency, pain, diet, exercise and weight.
✘ Useable after some time and effort - log-in information is not immediately obvious and spans many screens which is time consuming. No user manual.
Reviewer: Jeremy Steinberg, GP, FRNZCGP
Date of review: March 2018
Comments: This app is useful for people wanting to track their diet and symptoms. This app is a limited food and symptom diary; however it was last updated four years ago and has an outdated, buggy and confusing user design. Some very important features such as editing entries are missing. See mySymptoms for a much more fully featured and regularly updated food and symptom diary.
Safety concerns: None.
New Zealand relevance: The medication tracker has many North American names for medications.
