How do I add, change, move or delete entries in a profile? (iPhone)

You can do a lot more than just take temperatures with the Kinsa app for iPhone. You can also track your entire path to recovery by adding new entries to your Kinsa profile. 

With the Kinsa app installed on your iPhone, you can:

  • add a diagnosis from your doctor
  • create a reminder to take medications
  • track symptoms and attach photos (rash, bump, etc.)
  • write your own notes
  • log medications you've already taken
  • record temperature readings

Even with all these different types of health information at your fingertips, we've still made managing it all really easy. Follow the steps below to add new entries, edit old entries, move entries around and delete entries you don't need anymore.
