What can Gi BodyGuard do for me?

Gi BodyGuard empowers you to track vital digestive health information and recognize trends that may indicate a change in your health status. With a few quick clicks, you can quickly, privately, and easily create an extensive, up-to-the-minute summary of your digestive health history to share with your health care team. Armed with critical information about you, they can provide informed care to help you feel better.

Not terrible but glitchy.


Cool idea, better than other free ones but it's glitchy. It doesn't keep daily logs organized properly (i.e. Mixes up days that food logs are made, saying meals I logged yesterday are "today's" logs, and consistently separating the days part way through, even when I select the correct day while making the log (maybe an inherent time zone issue?)... Also sometimes duplicates logs that I make or lists each food item twice. It would also be much more useful if the app could identify correlations between types of food eaten and illness occurrences. Like flag repeating incidents or at least graph both food and illness together on a chart when creating reports. Currently it's almost impossible to find patterns when all reports are separate.

UC App Reviewer

It is "okay" but needs work...problems encountered include incorrect date logging with food entries; cannot view/edit entries prior to January 2 2016; unable to delete/remove water reminder; regarding medication dosage, there does not seem to be a decimal point (i.e., .5 teaspoon could not be entered); the chart reports are a little messy. Overall I like the app but would like to see items fixed and perhaps add a "Stress" category. Thank you!

A solution for my teen with Crohn

The Mulvales

When I saw this app, I could have cried. This is the first tool that I have seen that my son will use to track his digestive health. He's 13 and has Crohn’s since he was 8. He has trouble talking about what's happening with his body -- especially during a flare. Gi BodyGuard looks great, is easy to use, and PRIVATE. I'm sure our doctor will appreciate seeing all this important information in a clean, complete report and my son will be relieved not to have speak about every symptom. I know having a more complete summary of symptoms, medications and food will help our physician understand my boy’s health status and provide him with the best care.
