Learn how to use MyFitnessPal to monitor Oxidative Stress and learn how your lifestyle choices influence your Oxidative Stress and health. MyFitnessPal is a popular, free health app that tracks your fitness activities and dietary choices. However, you can modify this app to track other measurements of interest to you.
Blood Oxidative Stress Should Concern You
It is estimated that more than 2/3 of adult American suffer from long-term, elevated Blood Oxidative Stress or BLOS. Blood cells induced to generate high levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is BLOS. This ROS permeates the entire body causing damage to tissue and organs. It is thought that food additives and preservatives containing inorganic sulfur may be the primary cause of BLOS. Multiple health problems are also thought to be caused by long-term, elevated BLOS including obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, atherosclerosis, and higher risk of Cancer. BLOS management may be the key to better health. At this time, the Urine Oxidative Stress Test is the only available test for measuring BLOS. Monitoring BLOS and lifestyle choices may provide insight into foods that trigger BLOS.
Use MyFitnessPal to Monitor Oxidative Stress and More
Download the MyFitnessPal app. Setup your profile and select MY HOME menu option on your MyFitnessPal homepage. Next, select the Check-In menu and you will see the following screen. In the Track Additional Measurements screen, you simply fill in the Description below Add Another Measurement. I entered BLOS, but you can add other measurements like Blood Sugar, A1C, and more.
For Blood Oxidative Stress or BLOS, you can use the Urine Oxidative Stress Test Kit to measure your Oxidative Stress. With this kit, you’ll get a qualitative description of your BLOS or Oxidative Stress measurement. The color indicator strip will tell you if your BLOS level is Normal (5), Low (15), Medium (30), or High (45).
You can monitor or review your BLOS or other measurements by selecting the REPORTS menu option and then Charts sub-menu option. In the example below, I input BLOS of 15 for a Low BLOS measurement.
With this approach, you can monitor BLOS and more with your MyFitnessPal health app. Periodic BLOS measurements may be helpful in learning how your lifestyle choices influence your BLOS level.
Purchase the Fitbit Fitness and Heart Rate Tracker
