Welcome to the NEW HealthCentral!

At HealthCentral, we believe that health is more than just medicine - it's about living the best way you can and helping others do the same. Our redesign is built around three main areas: FIND information you need, MANAGE your condition, and CONNECT where you can explore the experience of people living with the disease, caregivers and more.

Check out some of the new features:

Share Your Experience

Create a SharePost. Only someone who has been there knows about the hardships and triumphs of dealing with a condition, and has practical advice that might be invaluable to others. So what has worked for you? What hasn't? Are there particular diets, tools, or "tips and tricks" that help you deal day-to-day? Can you recommend books, articles, or pages on this Web site, or other sites that might be useful to others? SharePosts make it easy to share your story, post a question or make recommendations. Whether it is a regular update on your life story or a single, simple tip that may help someone get through the day, SharePosts are your way to join the conversation. Share Your Experience - Start Here!

Our Experts help lead the community discussion and keep you informed. They are individuals who have proven themselves to be leaders in the field: Authors, journalists, medical professionals and advocates--each of Our Experts has shown that he or she is passionate and knowledgeable about this condition. Most have been down this road themselves, and they're committed to sharing their experience with you.

Although only your own doctor can give you specific medical advice, the medical professionals on our staff strive to make sure you are armed with the best information available. They'll keep you up to date about medication, treatment and the latest news and research. Remember--you're a partner in your medical decisions. Ask questions and take charge of your health. Meet our team.
