You can search the 24 Guidelines by age and by topic, making it easy for you to find evidence-based medical expert guidance for people with Spina Bifida from birth through adulthood.
The Symptom Tracker gives people with Spina Bifida the ability to securely:
- track health markers such as skin integrity and physical activity;
- keep an eye on symptoms like pain and problems with sleep;
- follow medications, bowel management plans, and catheter routines; and
- add notes specific to your situation
We encourage you to use this tool to create a “health diary” that you can share with your clinicians. We hope that by tracking your symptoms regularly, you can see changes that take place, understand your health better, and gain more control over your health care and treatment.
