Choosing a Health Care Plan

When it comes to getting health insurance, you may have more than one option. Whether you get your insurance from your employer or you buy it from the Health Insurance Marketplace, here is a guide that can help you understand how to compare your options.

Arrhythmia and Atrial Fibrillation

An arrhythmia is a problem with the rate or rhythm of your heartbeat – it beats too quickly, too slowly, or with an irregular pattern. Atrial fibrillation is the most common type of arrhythmia and is a disorder involving the heart’s electrical system. Learn how atrial fibrillation is diagnosed and treated.

Fiber: Soluble and Insoluble

There are two different types of fiber – soluble and insoluble. You need both for health and digestion.

  • Soluble fiber attracts water and slows digestion. Some types of soluble fiber may help lower your risk of heart disease.
  • Insoluble fiber adds bulk to the stool and appears to help food pass more quickly through the stomach and intestines.

Learn which foods will help you get the dietary fiber you need.
