What does the app do?
The app enables you to keep track of your daily fluid intake, weight and blood pressure. It allows you to set limits for these measurements and alerts you if your blood pressure or weight reaches a level that requires notifying your healthcare provider. The app has provision for you to diarize doctors appointments, create medication lists and store questions for your healthcare provider. It also has information about heart disease, kidney disease, low sodium and dietary tips.
Easy to use tracking features - able to track weight, fluid intake and blood pressure.
Displays an alert message when limits have been exceeded.
Weight trends can be viewed as graphs for the past week, month 3 months and 6 months.
Has provision to email results to healthcare provider.
The My Medications function that allows the user to create a list of medications does not appear to be working.
The notebook function that allows you to diarize doctors appointments, create medication lists and store questions for your healthcare provider does not have a save icon so it is not obvious to the user if their entries have been saved.
Default settings are American measurement units such as pounds and ounces, but does make allowances for conversion to kg and mL - difference in units can be confusing to NZ users.

This app has been reviewed by other independent websites:
The formal app review is based on the Mobile App Rating Scale (MARS) developed by researchers at Queensland University of Technology, Australia.(1) It is designed to score apps on a few comprehensive dimensions — engagement, functionality, aesthetics, and information quality. Each dimension comprises several items which are rated on a 5-point scale from “1. Inadequate” to “5. Excellent”.
Reviewer: Luke Foster, Doctor, Waikato District Health Board, January 2017 Clinical score: ★★★★★ Review: "The app is most suitable for people with chronic kidney disease and/or heart failure who are looking for support monitoring their salt and fluid intake. Users can log their water intake, weight and blood pressure against the targets they set with their health professional. It contains educational material for users to learn about their diagnosis and the importance of salt and fluid management. These functions may assist users aiming to improve their self-management." Safety concerns: None New Zealand relevance: ★★★★☆ Review: "There are no links to New Zealand based support groups or charities. Default settings are American measurement units such as pounds and ounces, but does make allowances for conversion to kg and mL - difference in units can be confusing to NZ users."
