… Any physician who has ever had to discuss bowel habits with an IBS patient knows how frustrating it can be to get vague feedback on patient symptoms. “All of my apps are designed to help people to spot trends, patterns, and how things might be related to each other,” said Heiss. “For example, ‘Does stress appear to aggravate my IBS symptoms?’ ‘Since I started Yoga, did my daily average stress level go down?’ ‘Was I able to avoid peak stress …?'” …
Dr. Oz: (summary from recap.com)
“Dr Oz loved the idea of an app to track your poop. BM Pro lets you track your bowel movements, sort of like a reverse calorie counter. You can put in all the data and comments about consistency, water intake, and dietary factors that you can track over days and weeks. One viewer tested the app and she used it to discover that Gluten caused her to become constipated.”
The Doctor Weighs In: (website)
… for folks with certain types gastrointestinal disorders (e.g., irritable bowel syndrome), it can be helpful in trying to make correlations between bad symptom days and other stuff going on in your life – diet, stress, coffee intake, and so forth.
It is this sort of correlation that I think will be one of the QS movement’s greatest contributions. Imagine having data from hundreds of thousands of self-trackers and mining it for relationships between symptoms and all sorts of other things going on in your world. This type of information, often pooh-poohed (pun intended) by traditional medicine in the past, could lead to a deeper understanding of disorders only incompletely understood at the present time.

… An ancient principle, born of the belief that some parts of an individual’s existence should remain unknown to other humans, Mystery died Thursday.
The cause was Phillip Eberling’s use of the social-sharing feature of his iPhone app “Bowel Mover Pro” to inform friends of his latest defecation. He rated his bowel movement as “lumpy.”
Mystery grew up in the Neolithic Period soon after the founding of civilization, when humans developed the sense of privacy. …

I have a condition, UC, which is similar to Chron’s Disease, and makes it very important for me to keep track of how my digestive system is working. This app has made it extremely easy for me to keep track of my symptoms and what is happening with my system. Although you can make notes, it gives you an easy to read visual display of what is happening with your gastrointestinal system. There so many things you can track with this to keep on top of your well being. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to keep track of what is going on with their body and especially anyone who is dealing with an IBS condition.
Just what my doctor wants!

My physician has asked that I track my bowel movements using the Bristol Scale to help with managing treatment for colitis. The earlier version of Bowel Mover worked okay with me adding in a note the scale number. With this update this app does EXACTLY what my physician asks for. Thanks! I recommend this for anyone with gastrointestinal issues.

This app had been good before the Nov 2014 update. I had written a review of the previous version, after having contacted the developer with some suggestions. They were obviously already on top of things, because they made the new version even better than I had anticipated.They were very responsive and communicative. Now the app can be customized for tracking almost any activity, which is a terrific feature. Hats off to the developers… they did a FANTASTIC job with something simple yet elegant. Well done folks!

Very good little app; easy to use. It’s very helpful in remembering and understanding when there may be a problem. There were a couple of very minor suggestions I had for the authors, and they were very fast in responding as well as noting they were already considering some new features. Nice job!

I wondered if there was an app like this when I was diagnosed with Crohn’s ~10 months ago and ended up writing out a very tedious journal to keep track of my symptoms. This app makes my life much easier in that regard. It’s not perfect, but it does 90% of what I need it to do, so thanks!
I LOVE THIS APP – REVIEW BY DR.G
By dermatologist from United States about Bowel Mover Pro – A Digestion Journal and Gluten Free Tracker (version 5.0.0, Apple App Store) on Mar 05, 2014
As a dermatologist, I recognize the importance of proper nutrition, digestion, and elimination in skin health. This app is a wonderful way for someone to keep track of hydration status; the tougher the poops, the more you should drink water! It is easy to use.Only two comments: developer might consider incorporating the Bristol poop scale and also, there doesn’t seem to be a way to edit an entry once it’s made.Other than that – LOVE the concept and the look!
