Daily Activity Tracking
Keeping tabs on how you’re feeling and your lifestyle habits is important for understanding and managing your journey with Crohn’s or colitis.
MyGut provides you with a simple platform to keep track of your symptoms, such as pain and washroom usage, and lifestyle habits, such as sleep, diet, and nutrition.
By updating the activity tracker on a daily basis, you can easily look back and identify health trends for a particular day, week, or month. MyGut shares these insights with you through a simple graph to ensure you can quickly gauge and identify your health trends for the period of time that you choose.
Education is power, and we’re here to support you in learning all about IBD. We created a database of resources focused on helping you live well with Crohn’s or colitis. Through our app, you can access educational content on a number of topics, including:
- Diet and nutrition
- Medications and treatments
- Pain and symptom management
- Complications of IBD
- Lifestyle and travel
- And more!
Based on your app profile, we’ll refresh your dashboard with interesting reads on a regular basis to keep you up-to-date on topics most important to you!
Remember to bookmark your favourite articles or ones that you look forward to reading.
Gauge your health and wellbeing through a two-week quality of life check in and a six-month health assessment. The interesting reads that appear on your personal dashboard will be based on your answers to these short questionnaires.

It’s important to communicate your symptoms, lifestyle habits, and overall wellbeing. MyGut keeps your healthcare provider up-to-date as you can easily generate reports based on your daily activity tracking and completed questionnaires.
