Introducing the Hepatitis C Tracker


We're pleased to announce the Hepatitis C tracker, the next in a series of Personal Health Applications (PHAs) geared towards helping our members with keep track of their health metrics, symptoms, treatments, test results and events. We developed the Hepatitis C tracker with feedback from several of the members from this community and we're excited to be able to make it available. The tracker will allow you to keep track of your daily treatments and symptoms specific to Hepatitis C.

You can access the Hepatitis C Tracker by clicking on the "Trackers" link at the top of the community, or on the "Trackers" tab on My MedHelp.

We plan on adding more functionality to the Hepatitis C Tracker over the next few weeks and would love to get your suggestions and feedback. If you want to track a specific treatment or event, let us know. Please post your comments in the MedHelp Suggestions community, accessible via My Shortcuts.

I think WBC platelets --- HGB ---  and CBC results should be listed.

I also think that you should have a checkbox or listing for symptoms felt or observed.
(Example: Brain Fog, Temperature, Chills, Fever, Muscle Aches, Body Pains, Headache, Dehydration, breathing problems, chest pains, upper body pains, lower body pains, difficulty walking, nausea, rash(es), itching, loss of hair, hair growth, facial hair growth, eyelash growth, mental high, mental low, etc.) It is very important to be able to keep track of the side effects - because those can be what determine how you respond both mentally and physically to the treatment - or determining IF you should treat at all.

I also think amount of water consumed would be a good help for those needing assistance in drinking more water.

HCV ---- and some other diseases have such multifaceted issues that it is very difficult to hit each one.

Those with COMBO diseases such as HCV and HIV - is there a way for you to link the 2 trackers together so they don't have to do 2 separate ones?

Thanks for trying to make something so folks can keep ahead of themselves - I think it will be helpful in the long run.

But seriously - side effects on that tracker would be something that would GENUINELY be helpful.

Needs some work, but a big step in the right direction.

You can go to the top of the tracker and go all the way back to June 2006.

Just a little detail. In the chart bilirubin is spelled wrong. It says billrubin.
