How to control what data you see in Health for iPhone

You can collect all kinds of data inside the Health app but if some of it is more important to you than the rest, you'll want to make sure that's what you see on your Dashboard, which functions as the main view in Health. You can also remove stats that you don't care about from the Dashboard altogether. Here's how!

Before continuing, remember that certain types of data points will require or work better with the use of external accessories. For example, if you want to automatically track and monitor your blood sugar levels with Health, you certainly can but you'll most likely want a compatible monitor that connects with your iPhone and feeds into Health. You can plug in data manually, but that won't be as convenient or as easy to remember.

Other types of data such as step count and calories can be automatically tracked using the motion sensor, or with a fitness tracker that integrates with Health. That being said, continue on to learn how to configure Health to hide and show the data you care about most...
