Description

MyHealthyGut can help improve overall gastrointestinal health (GI) including diarrhea. Users must sign up for the 7 day free trial version of the app after it is first opened. Then, they must create an account before using the app and complete a questionnaire for the app to generate suggestions. After a credit card is linked, users can explore the app’s many features such as tracking, rating of symptoms, resources, and meal plans. 

 

Overview

MyHealthyGut has a wide variety of tools and resources that may help users with IBS and diarrhea. There are many parts devoted to general GI Health, such as constipation and diarrhea. Fluid intake also factors into a healthy diet, but it is not considered in the app. The different meal plans and the tracking feature are two of the most helpful tools the app offers.

 

Pros

MyHealthyGut ranks food so user can see which are the best to include in their diet for healthy digestion. In the healing foods section, there are foods listed as the “Top 25 Pro-Digestive for General Health”, which may be useful for managing IBS and diarrhea. Users can also search the health stats of their foods through the “Safe Food Search” to see if foods they normally eat contribute to their digestive problems. The app is organized well. For example, the meal plan section is divided into subsections: Pro-gut Day, 3 Day Quick Start Meal Plans, 7 Day Healing Meal Plan, and More Gut Healthy Recipes.

 

Cons

The app tracks food consumed and supplements taken, but it doesn’t cover all dietary factors that may contribute to IBS and diarrhea symptoms. Some useful additions could include water and alcohol intake. While a healthy diet can certainly help with diarrhea, the only specific conditions the app claims to improve are celiac disease and gluten intolerance. For example, the resources section is almost solely devoted to educating users on gluten intolerance.
