Tracking other health concerns & adding children

Hi there,
I just found this app, but I am very impressed so far. Is there any plan to add a possibility to track other health related data as well, please? I am thinking of symptoms, well-being status, menstruation etc. Or is this already possible and I haven't discovered it yet?
Mainly I am asking as my son and I are on a very strict elimination diet to analyse other health concerns. Thus, tracking status of well-being and level of various symptoms would be greatly beneficial.
Also, the option of adding children under the same account would be great, obviously. :wink:
Thanks in advance!
Have a Happy Day!
Yvonne

    Hi Yvonne!

    Gold members have the option of adding biometrics. Simply click on "biometrics", followed by the green plus sign to add in your biometric. We currently offer the option to track mood. I use a scale of 1-10 with my clients.

    Have a happy day as well!

    Thank you so much, Susan! I didn't see the drop box until you told me here. I thought it's only for weight.
    Unfortunately, the text field is VERY small. One cannot really write a comment into it. The units 'milligiggles' is very funny :) A scale is a bit unsatisfactory for tracking mood and other symptoms imo. But it is a way to work with that little text field for now. Thank you! I wish that part was a bit more thought through.
    I am also wondering whether it's in planning that one can add children and that children's metabolism is considered (and that they are growing little people). It did calculate something for my 8 year old, but I am not sure how accurate this is, and it would be more convenient to be able to enter his data using just my login and switching between the family members using some kind of tab or similar system.
    However, I just started using this app and I am overall really impressed.
    Have a very happy day! :smiley:

  • @TheVeryHungryMommy Don't forget you can also log notes to the diary for free-form text, so you could add biometrics with numerics for anything you need to be able to chart, and log notes with text for anything else to keep it recorded in the right place.

  • Thank you, Aaron! I just tried the notes. I like it how it shows up in the diary. That will work, thank you!

  • @Susan_RD_101
    Other than the weight, the "biometrics" tracking does not generate charts , or does it? For instance, one would not be able to track the variation of the systolic pressure with a glance, you will have to flip through daily biometrics records, am I correct?

  • @mike you can chart any biometrics you've logged on the Trends tab.

  • @Aron
    Does charting generate graphs like the imputed weight data, if so, would you please elaborate. on how to do that because I only get charts for weights imputed eevn though I use the same input method for the other biometrics.

    Thanks Aaron

  • On the trends tab, second chart, In the top left corner of the chart there is a drop down menu to let you change the biometric it's plotting from weight to any of the other metric choices.

  • Oh oh I can elaborate!

    Check out this video where we explain the charting features:

    Thank you folks very much for the great help, this really makes Cronometer very functional; with the information off the "Trends" tab, Cronometer really addresses all my nutritional needs. Somehow I either neglected to thoroughly check that tab, or forgot all its functionalities.

    The new format of the discussions helps user make the most out of the programme, and visit it daily.

    Thanks again.

  • Thanks for the charting questions & answers! That was very interesting!
