Rajiv Mehta, creator of Tonic, in today's New York Times

If you caught the article, "A Dashboard for Your Body," in the August 4 edition of the New York Times, you saw writer Farhad Majoo's profile of five mobile health apps that track a variety of health-related metrics, including calorie burn, weight, body fat, body temperature, blood pressure, and more.

Rajiv Mehta, creator of the Tonic Self-Care App, wrote in response to the NYT article, noting that many of the tools profiled in the piece focused on long-term tracking of health, while millions of Americans -- especially those with chronic diseases like diabetes, high cholesterol, and arthritis -- also need help tracking day-to-day health, symptoms, and staying on top of tasks like adhering to a medication regimen.
