What can Gi BodyGuard do for me?
Gi BodyGuard empowers you to track vital digestive health information and recognize trends that may indicate a change in your health status.

Try Cara instead
I can't use this now since I have the stoopid iOS 11 downgrade but I had to take screenshots to keep an ongoing log. 🤷🏽♀️ Happily I found Cara and have been able to keep a handle on things with it and Life Cycle (with creatively named "activities" meaning "GI distress" and numbering from 1-7). Poo Keeper is another straight forward log for just the GI part (you can add pictures!).
I hope all you IBS folks know about the Monash University IBS app too. That'll help you figure out you can eat lots of strawberries… if you're lucky.
Can't add entries to previous day's log
Every time I try to add last night's dinner it adds it to the current day's log. Frustrating when I'm trying to figure out my IBS triggers.
Can only log present day
As soon as it hit 12, yesterdays log was gone and I couldn't find it anywhere. This app had was perfect, quick and simple while being detailed enough to be of benefit, but what's the use of a log that only saves the current day? There is none, I need to delete the app and hope I find something similar.
