  • Is pain keeping you up at night? Sleep-inducing drugs aren’t the solution, but these nondrug therapies might help you sleep better and longer.
  • Should you get a PSA test? Some experts say yes, others say no. HEALTH AFTER 50 sorts through the conflicting recommendations and evidence to help you decide whether you need to be screened for prostate cancer.
  • A type of knee surgery you may not need. Repairing a meniscus that’s been damaged by age-related wear and tear often has no more long-term benefit than undergoing physical therapy, says new research.
  • This simple breathing technique could banish your burps. So says a new study that suggests heartburn sufferers can squelch their belch with “belly breathing,” which you’ll learn how to perform.

  • Are you a pet caregiver? If so, experts say caring for a sick dog or cat can take a toll on your health, too. Here’s what you can do to take care of yourself while tending to your loyal companion.
  • How low should you go? Updated blood pressure guidelines have redefined hypertension, so what you once thought were normal BP levels are now too high. Find out if you’ve entered a danger zone where you need to be treated.
  • Heart disease is not just a man’s disease. It’s the number one killer of women—and heart attack symptoms may be more subtle and different in women than in men. Learn the warning signs and symptoms that could save your life.
