In the just posted issue of NIH MedlinePlus magazine, host of “American Ninja Warrior” and comedian Matt Iseman shares how he has coped with rheumatoid arthritis. From the relief he felt when he was diagnosed to the exercise and standup comedy that keep him going, Iseman is forthright about his challenges. He says, “I am walking proof of the importance of research like that done by NIH.”
In addition to covering rheumatoid arthritis, the issue also features—
- Improving Kidney Transplant Access for All—More patients with kidney failure are potential candidates for transplants than ever before, and yet many of them don’t know it. And did you know that it can be safer to donate a kidney in your sixties and seventies than in your twenties?
- Updates on Blood Pressure—Understanding your blood pressure reading can be challenging. This article can help make sense of blood pressure guidelines.
- Uncovering the Mysteries of Multiple Sclerosis—Medical imaging helps NIH research understand this tricky disease.
Through feature articles, personal stories, infographics, and more, NIH MedlinePlus helps explain how NIH turns “discovery into health.” This quarterly publication of NIH and the Friends of the National Library of Medicine gives readers news they can use.
