what qualifies as "vitals" and a page

So I think there should be things all people always track in case something goes wrong. Doctors already track weight and blood pressure every visit. Resting heart rate is a great example as the most common wearable, the smart watch already tracks it. Some possible suggestions would be mood, symptoms and a few cognitive tests. What do you think? - DG

I'm not 100% sure what you mean. A differentiation between self-tracked variables and those vitals which are already routinely collected when visiting a doctor? - Gedankenstuecke (talk) 12:29, 15 July 2022 (UTC)

Should I put this in? problems with st saving money

Right after "self tracking saves money" add "Self tracking might push all the work onto the user and push away the doctor, but that is probably speculation." - DG

Which point exactly do you mean? :-) - Gedankenstuecke (talk) 12:29, 15 July 2022 (UTC)

it is fun to get enough data

points and finally say 'this prescriptive plan did not work for me'
