I have experienced the save thing with doctors and other caregivers. This app is remarkably handy and useful

                   It would be great if there were a title for transplantation.

Hi Jackie—Thanks for sharing your idea!

I was able to find a similar topic that a few members did reply to! Here’s the link below if you’d like to connect there.

Everyone has some excellent suggestions. I like them all. That would eliminate the need for a pocket calendar.
I really like the BM Tracker. Urine too.
Tonight the microphone & camera are getting in my way.
My doctor says I have the heaviest purse ever. I showed him EVERYTHING in it is medically related.
Everyone, doctors have changed over the years. They no longer know ‘you’ like the back of their hand. Many don’t know all the side effects & complications of the medications they prescribe.
My Endocrinologist was surprised when he saw, one of METFORMIN’s complaints was frequent diarrhea.
I have been complaining for 10+ years about memory lost - majorly statin related (I am the only one on both sides of my family suffering memory lost. When on Medformin, I had ‘none stop’ diarrhea. I couldn’t go from my front door to the MAILBOX without an accident. I was a prisoner to the closest bathroom in my house. I still don’t know why I peed all day.
I was given one drug for Diaverticulysis, accompanied by one drug to stop the diarrhea. One drug to make me have a BM. One pill to pee, one to stop. Every new drug had it’s own set of complications. Those print outs the druggist gives you, only gloss over the effects.
I went to the Library and pulled down every drug book I could find. With the reference books & my little Smartphone I Searched every drug I ever took. Turns out the statin I was taking, caused the memory loss and my liver Failure. The heart pill ( it’s a 3 in one pill) I have been taking for 20years because of a heart attack (totally stress related) causes my Kidney Failure.
It gets worse. I told the cardiologist I wanted to stop the statin immediately. I also wanted him to research a new heart pill w/o so many compilations. He wrote my new prescription.
I sat outside the drug store, reseaching it with my phone and it was another statin. IF IT IS A STATIN, IT HAS THE SAME COMPLICATIONS OR WORST!
First paragraph: sugar glucose will run high. Those over 65 may suffer more adverse side effects, I’m 74… People with Diabetes will have worst effects. When I started the diabetes medicine I was skinny (5’4"; 130lbs) within 6months I had gained 40 pounds. My Endocrinologist said it was the combination of my hypothyroid & Diabetes medications. I WAS WALKING 3 MILES A DAY!
I couldn’t eat any less. I have 2 shakes a day; dinner. I eat Recipes from Dr.Guntrys (sp) diet. Three quarters vegetables & salad 4ozs fish or meat (mainly fish).
ALL THIS TO SAY, YOU HAVE TO BE YOUR OWN ADVOCATE!!! REVIEW EVERYTHING!!! DON’T PURCHASE A MEDICATION UNLESS YOU HAVE RESEARCHED IT ON MULTIPLE SITES. The INFORMATION ABOUT IT AND IT’S SIDE EFFECTS. PAY CLOSE ATTENTION IF INTERACTS WITH OTHER MEDICATIONS.
THERE ARE TOO MANY DRUGS ON THE MARKET, YOUR DOCTOR CAN’T BE WELL VERSED ON ALL OF THEM.
HOW DO I FEEL? I FEEL LIKE A SCIENCE EXPERIMENT!
Have a Great weekend!

You know we are asking a lot for a “free app.”
I hope the “makers” know we are sending a wish list for the future. Every time I get some thing I suggested, I do a happy dance. When I had the 4 dogs, 2 would run into another room. Lucy doesn’t care. Most of the time she doesn’t even look. She’s a survivor!


#29

Additional trackers that would be useful:

Flu shot

Shingles shot

Tetanus shot

Pneumonia shot

Thanks for consideration.

Hi Ivy, I have been sitting here for a while looking for my post in pets because I received a response to my post; the problem is that I cannot find it and it is driving me up the wall. Is there a way to make it possible to see and/or respond to our responses. I was looking for a response to my post in pets.
Thank you
