Creating a diet/symptom tracker app

I've been suffering with IBS-D for around 2 years and I want to try and create an app which can manage and track both diet (or any trigger) as well as the resulting symptoms. I have personally found it quite difficult to keep track of both consistently and want to try my hand at a solution.

I'm still in the early stages of development and would like some input on potential features, issues which you have with current solutions etc. Whilst I suffer with IBS-D and know about some features which could help me, everyone has a different experience with this illness and would really appreciate the insight.

  1. That sounds like a great idea. 😀 I've personally never been able to use any tracking apps consistently because it takes too much time and effort, especially putting in all the ingredients to every meal. I don't know if that can be made easier somehow.
    And it would also be nice for the app to analyze the triggers and suggest what might statistically cause symptoms. For example, if I eat oats for breakfast, I'll get bloated in the late afternoon, so technically the app could recognize that by itself and suggest that oats might trigger bloating. I hope that makes sense!
