Health Tip: Why Keep a Health Journal?

Health Tip: Why Keep a Health Journal?

01/06/14

(HealthDay News) -- A health journal captures various snapshots of your health, which helps you and your doctor get a clear picture of your medical history.

The American Academy of Family Physicians mentions these added benefits of keeping a health journal:

  • You can track your illnesses, as well as the various treatments you've taken.
  • You can track medications you've taken, and any surgical procedures.
  • You can take your journal to doctor's appointments and review with your physician.
  • You can become a more empowered, knowledgeable and informed patient.
