Hey all you UC’ers,
I’m pleased to tell you about a free app that I recently learned about, called IBD Health Storylines. It is specifically designed for individuals diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and IBD, created with inputs from the patient community.
This app makes it easy to record your bowel activity, food triggers, moods and other symptoms. You can even use it to track other health conditions and sync with your FitBit or Jawbone! All the information you track on the app is summarized onto your personal health “storylines” so you can track your UC patterns, and share your history more accurately with your doctor.
That’s not all – by using IBD Health Storylines, you also have the opportunity to anonymously contribute learning from your UC self-care experience to help researchers learn more about our condition, so that they can improve care and support services in the future… for people like us!
I started site and the eNewsletter(you can join that below) shortly after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in October of 2008 with severe pancolitis (when my whole colon was inflamed).
For me, it was a very rough start with severe symptoms. Getting bounced from medication to medication was not easy or too helpful. But, I did meet another UC’er, changes several parts of my diet, and of course the rest is history.

Remember while using the site that:
UC symptoms and flare ups don’t last forever and no two people are the same.
You cool with that? good!
