Google Health - Check it out

Things continue to improve with Thing2. However, we continue to have significant health challenges to manage.

Yesterday I explored Google Health for the first time.

All I can say is Wow! If it had been available when all this started, maybe things wouldn't have gone so far before we realized what was going on.

If you take any medications, you should check it out. Building-up an easy-to-access health record could save you if your health status changes and you need to analyze what has changed.

I also found that it's fairly easy to create a daily medication schedule/log in Google Calendar. My only warning is that there are some bugs in the WYSIWYG functionality in the print module.


  1. They wouldn't allow me to use it because I don't live in the U.S.
    Glad T2 continues to improve!

  2. I guess I'll have the same problem as Kate... but I'm glad YOU are able to use it! Hope it continues to help!

  3. I am on eight different medications for three separate problems. I see a specialist and my regular physician. Both doctors stay in contact with one another, and keep close track of my do I by way of google. I hope it works for you guys.

  4. I don't know why they are limiting it. Perhaps it makes it easier to link with the partner sites...

  5. Hi KIT, I'm happy to read Thing2 is improving.

    I have kept a log (made my own special meds sheet ) for 10 years now. I take 8 prescribed meds. All of my Doc's know what I'm taking, when and how much.

    Going to have a new R.A. Doc March 2nd though! YAY! I hope I can get away from the chemo!

    That's great that you found your needed info . Hope you are feeling well, too.

  6. Good news on Thing2. I hope she continues to improve. Thanks for the Google Health tip. I'll check it out.
