Being gutsy is usually defined as the ability to show courage, determination, and spirit.
Someone who quietly suffers with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) might find it difficult to display this kind of bravery, though.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease is a condition where the lining of the digestive tract becomes inflamed, and chronic symptoms arise. The two most common conditions include Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease. Ulcerative colitis involves the inflammation along the lining of the large intestine and the rectum. Crohn’s disease affects the deeper layers of the digestive tract and usually affects the small intestine. Both conditions present with diarrhoea, rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, fatigue and weight loss.
Having these symptoms on a constant basis, would make you feel uncomfortable and uneasy. Studies have reported that IBD patients generally feel higher levels of anxiety and depression when compared to healthy control groups.
At Ferring, people come first. With what those who have IBS go through and what they have to endure on a daily basis in mind, we developed the innovative IBD Health Diary app to give you the tools to take control of your condition, your health and ultimately, your life.
The IBD Health Diary app is a new approach to empowering IBD patients and improving the outcomes from the palm of your hands.
It is important to keep track of the progress of your IBD. As life gets busy, it becomes trickier to trying to remember or record your IBD symptoms.
This is where the IBD Health Diary comes to your aid. It will help you monitor and understand your condition, and all of your relevant information is kept in one place, easy for you to access at any time.
The app keeps a record of your progress with a simple-to-use personal health tool. All you need to do is answer a few pre-selected questions and immediately receive a status report, which you can also share with your healthcare professionals by simply emailing the document over.
The scheduler feature allows you to get notifications when it’s time to take your medication, or alerts you of your next doctor’s appointment.
The IBD Health Diary app allows you to take control and Be Gutsi.
All you need to do is download the app from either Google Play or the App Store, register on the app by providing your personal details, explore the features and most importantly, start living your life without the embarrassment and anxiety you had before.
