It is important to continue communicating with your doctor about how you are doing. Be sure to keep all doctor's appointments and avoid missing doses. You should also be tracking any symptoms you are still experiencing and taking note of any side effects, especially any signs of infection of any kind.
Track your daily symptoms and other important information
No matter what your treatment method is, keeping track of how you're feeling day-to-day is an important part of managing your health. That's why we've created the Wellness WidgetTM. It's an interactive tool you can use to record your symptoms and other important notes about your day.

With the Wellness WidgetTM, you can:
- Record your daily symptoms and other important information like disease triggers
- Generate wellness reports to send to your doctor
- Set e-mail and text message reminders for doctor's visits, medication doses, or prescription refills

Track your Crohn's symptoms
Feel free to record information about your medication, your sleep patterns, your diet, whatever seems important to you and your general wellness each day. For example, you might note, "Ate ice cream today, upset my stomach." or "Medicating made me feel sluggish, tired." By making notes for yourself, you can gain a more complete picture of how your treatment is progressing.
Report your Crohn's symptoms
With the Wellness WidgetTM, you can generate a detailed report of all your daily symptom entries for your doctor to see. Generating wellness reports is easy:
- Select "Create a Report" from the widget main menu
- Choose the date range for your report
Select the "How Did I Feel" option to report only symptoms, or select "Detailed Report" to report symptoms and notes.
Remember to talk to your doctor about how he or she would like to receive your tracker information. You may e-mail it to them as frequently as they request or you can print your report and bring it with you to your next visit.
Sometimes it's hard to keep track of all your important treatment-related events, like when it's time for your next medication dose. With the Wellness WidgetTM, you can set e-mail or text message reminders so you may remember when it's time to refill your prescription, visit your doctor, or take your medication.
