Featured App: Bowelle IBS Tracker

Bowelle is a food and symptom diary designed specifically for people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other digestive health problems. Tracking your bowel movements, foods, abdominal discomfort, your mood and stressors with a diary such as this (or a paper journal) is a key tool to identifying triggers to non-acute abdominal discomfort and changes to bowels, such as those in people who have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms, or other chronic gastrointestinal symptoms.

According to the app developers: "Bowelle is primarily designed for people with IBS or other gastrointestinal issues. Although you can use the app to debug your own health, it is not meant as a replacement to professional healthcare, instead it should be seen as a complement."

Many patients find this to be a helpful tool. It is free to use, and reports can be reviewed with your physician to uncover patterns and triggers that may be contributing bothersome gastrointestinal symptoms.

Contact your physician urgently if you have acute or severe abdominal pain, severe diarrhea or vomiting, fever, blood in your stool, or other worrisome symptoms.
