FOOD DIARY TRACKING MULTIVITAMINS

With concern for an accurate accounting I chose to track my multivitamin supplements.
I would like to see a category  for this with the popular brands available.
Also, It seems the addition of my intake is not accurately reflected in the daily averages.
Is anyone experienced with this.  Am I may missing something?

I love this site

Hi there,

Thank you for the suggestion for Multivitamins- we will keep that in mind!  

Also, in order to best assess the problem you are seeing with the intake, we'd like you to send us an email via the app. This will allow us to capture the version of the app you are using and what type of device it is.

1 - Tap on Settings in the app

2 - Tap on Support

3 - When it asks if you want to send your data, choose Yes.

4 - Write an email explaining the problems you are experiencing. Give as many details as you can - the more info, the better.

5 - Tap Send

Thanks so much, and we apologize for any inconvenience this causes.

Thanks Amber,
I tried sending a request using Help twice but did not see a "Send Data" item.
No response so far.
I think I missed the point of entering through Settings. I'll try again

I just went back to my app but can not find Settings.
I am using Chrome on an XP PC.
What am I missing?

Hi there -

You can add supplements as snacks or with meals, if you take them with meals, but we will pass your suggestion on to our developers to create a category for this.

Can you tell me more about the calculations? What makes you think it isn't working properly?

I apologize for the confusion. We were assuming you were using one of our apps on your phone, not Chrome.

Thanks,

Emily

Hi Emily,
I added a Centrum Men to my foods meticulously entering all the tracked items available on the label. Daily I add the multivitamin from My Foods to Breakfast. When I view my Daily Averages Report it does not reflect the quantities expected.
For example:
Centrum  Men B12 6 mcg 100% DV
Daily Average B12 0 mcg, 2 mcg Target
Centrum Men B6 2 mg 100% DV
Daily Average B6 0 mg 12%, 2mg Target

I noticed not all nutrients are shown when the food is added to the Meal. I thought it was just a snapshot of the database but it seems items not shown when building a Meal are not recorded. Is this true?
Thanks

Hi there -

If you go here-  http://www.medhelp.org/food_diary/manage_foods/6762445?personal_page_id=3335398 and click on Edit - it doesn't look as if you entered any info for B12 or B6.

If you click on Edit, you can add the missing info. (Note - you have a typo in the name, too.)

You can see more nutrients on our site by going to your Food tracker, and then clicking Reports. You can see Weekly Micro- and Macronutrients.

I hope this helps, but please let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks Emily,
That seems to have worked!
I know I entered those items before two times but now that I know how to Edit the Foods I can check it out and correct things on my own. I guess because I spend most of my time on the App I did not see a way to edit the Foods.

You have been prompt and concise in helping me and I deeply appreciate that.I recommend this site to everyone I think may benefit. Thank you and your colleagues.
Sincerely,
Vince
