Profile & Journal
Tracking of IBD symptoms as well at public profile
Food – The food diary allows you to keep track of your daily food habits, which will all be stored to look back on in the history section. This is very useful if you are currently having a flare and want to see if theres any food that is triggering it.
Bowel – If you are currently in a flare, most medical physicians ask you to keep track of your bowel habits during this time, referring back to the Bristol Stool Chart. This usual means keeping a notepad, piece of paper, or remembering to make a not on your phone. This keeps it all in one place.
Affirmation – Trying to keep positivity going, I want to encourage the user to add affirmations. This will also be encouraged with notifications. However, this can be turned off and does not have to be used if the user does not want to.
Medication – As most IBD patients take some kind of medication, especially during a flare, this can be kept track of using the app as a diary. The app can also offer an alarm clock notification if the user wants to use it.
Profile – Like most community applications there are profiles. This app is no different. I have kept this really simple though allowing name, username, recent posts and for them to create their own avatar. I would like to keep this community very unjudgemental and anonymous. So the content on this platform is all creativity related.
