You may also have other symptoms like nausea, weakness, and light and sound sensitivity. Learn more about the available treatments to relieve and prevent migraines.

Teens and Mental Health

When things get stressful, how does your teenager respond? It’s normal to feel angry or sad, but if these emotions continue for a long period of time it may be a sign of a more serious mental health concern. Learn how to recognize the signs and where to find help.

Risks of Inactive Lifestyle

If you spend a lot of time sitting at a desk working or on the couch watching TV or playing video games, you might be putting yourself at risk for certain health issues. A sedentary or inactive lifestyle means that you burn fewer calories, may have poorer blood circulation, and your body might experience more inflammation. This can lead to:

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Depression and anxiety

Find out how you can get started with exercise and be more active at work and at home.

Kawasaki Disease

Kawasaki disease is a rare illness that mainly affects young children and happens when the immune system attacks the blood vessels by mistake. This can lead to inflammation of blood vessels and can cause them to become narrow or close completely. Most children can recover from Kawasaki disease if treated right away. Learn more about the causes and symptoms.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E helps protect your body from damage caused by free radicals, keeps your immune system strong against viruses and bacteria, and is important in the formation of red blood cells. You can get vitamin E from your diet and from supplements. How much vitamin E do you need?
