Using a symptom tracker to monitor your health can be helpful for you and your doctor. You can track how your symptoms change in response to different factors – such as activity levels, diet, or treatments.
This information will help you to understand what’s affecting your symptoms, and can help you to identify triggers, factors, and patterns. For example, you might find that specific foods, people, or routines improve or worsen your symptom severity.
Discovering correlations like this allows you to plan your day-to-day activities more effectively. Or even change how you do things so you can manage your symptoms better.
A symptom tracker can also help you remember what’s happened since your last appointment. So that you have a record that you can show to your medical team next time you see them.
Ultimately, giving you more control over your symptoms and making you more prepared for medical appointments.
