  • Bulging Veins: What to Do About Vericose Veins?
    Varicose veins are swollen, twisted veins that lie just underneath the skin’s surface. They aren’t just a cosmetic issue. If they aren’t treated, they can also cause health problems.
  • Health Capsule: More Steps for Better Health
    Walking is an easy way to exercise without needing a gym membership. It’s a popular way to burn calories, and research shows that walking is good for your health. A new study asked how many steps a day can lead to health benefits.
  • Health Capsule: What is Psoriatic Arthritis?
    You are more likely to get psoriatic arthritis if you have a family member with psoriasis or arthritis. Talking with a health care provider can help you find what treatment methods are best for you.
  • Featured Website: Urologic Diseases
    Urologic diseases and conditions include urinary tract infections, kidney stones, prostate problems, and more. Find out how urologic problems are detected and treated.

NIH News in Health is available online in both HTML and PDF formats. Additionally, you can get trusted, up-to-date health information from NIH News in Health added directly to your site via NIH content syndication. Print copies are available free of charge for offices, clinics, community centers, and libraries within the U.S. Visit the NIH News in Health Facebook page to suggest topics you’d like to see covered, or share what you find helpful about the newsletter!
