Is there an easy way to keep all my medical records in one place under my control?

I am tired of physicians and pharmacists who won't give me access to my own data. I want it to be portable.

It might help to know what COUNTRY you in!

THE web IS WORLD WIDE!  I dont know the laws regarding YOU med records because I DONT KNOW WHAT COUNTRY YOU IN!
You can request copies of all results at the same time that the tests are done.  Yes, depending what country you are in the access laws vary.

I keep a folder with all my relevant tests and results in it.

If you use our app, you can record your blood sugar numbers each time you take them, and get an estimated A1C (you'll have to copy and paste the link): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.medhelp.sugarsense&hl=en
You can also track your weight and physical activity. I know this isn't exactly what you want to keep together, but it may help you get a handle on your health. Many hospital organizations have online portals where you can access your test results and prescriptions. Good luck finding a solution that works for you!
