Bowel Symptom Monitoring

Bowel symptom monitoring ,by keeping a four week daily food and symptom diary, is a great way to keep track of changes in your gut symptoms and identify potential trigger food groups/ food molecules. Use our page ,attached below, or an electronic diary if you prefer.

The bowel symptom/bowel habit section is particularly useful so don’t be shy about getting down to the nitty-gritty there. I find it very helpful if bathroom events are noted in the bottom (no pun intended) row and the feelings of digestive upset noted anywhere on the daily column that they occur so the timing of these around foo and drink consumption is noted.

Tip: a week at a glance diary shows symptom change very clearly. Download a copy and modify it if needed to suit your needs.
