what qualifies as "vitals" and a page[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

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

making those tough medical decisions[edit | edit source]

is it worth to have a somewhat serious operation to fix a drop in quality of life if you are not sure there is a drop without health tracking
