I just downloaded the "GI Monitor" iPhone app for my iPod Touch* and it seems like it will be pretty helpful! It tracks stools/day, blood, pain, meds, and stress level.

I was excited someone thought to make a UC app!

I have a Touch so I just may look this up! But I wonder what prompted them to make an app for that?

Thanks for the info. I also downloaded iPoop. It is used to record frequency, color, and shape. It would be nice if they had an entry for food.

Figuring out how to reduce a flare or get into remission is a trial and error experience. Don't expect your GI to have all the answers. He was trained in making diagnoses, prescribing medications, and surgically removing the colon. He was not trained in alternative treatments. That's why they are called alternative treatments.

I've never wanted an iPhone but now after reading this I am suddenly more interested. Not interested enough to pay more for the service plan though.
Diagnosed with mild proctitis in March 2007: Treated with Canasa (as needed)
December 08: Began treating with Asacol 400mg (9/day) + Canasa 2x/day - Anemic
May 09: Off Canasa, taking Asacol (9/day)
Back on Canasa every other night + Asacol (9/day) + Probiotics + Iron
Reducing to 6 Asacol/day + Canasa + Probiotics + Iron - So far so good!!! -SPOKE TOO SOON! Back to 9/day...
