The El Kadsreian version of Discovery Health Channel was a localized version of the defunct American channel of the same name. Launched in July 1998, it was owned by El TV Kadsre Television Network as a spin-off of Discovery Channel, focusing on health and wellness-oriented programming.
In the beginning, DHC's programming consisted of reruns of medical- and health-themed programming from other Discovery networks, particularly TLC. As the network matured, it began producing its own reality series, mostly dealing with babies (Babies: Special Delivery, Birth Day), bodies (Plastic Surgery: Before and After, National Body Challenge), and medicine (The Critical Hour, Dr. G: Medical Examiner). DHC also showed episodes of the CBS medical drama series Chicago Hope on a semi-regular basis. DHC also aired fitness-related programming, most of which later spun off to its sister network FitTV. DHC won its first Daytime Emmy in 2004 for its original series about adoptive families, Adoption Stories.
On February 1, 2011, it merged with sister channel FitTV was rebranded as Discovery Fit & Health. The network initially took on Discovery Health's programming with FitTV's fitness programming as a compliment. It was relaunched in 2015 as Discovery Life, to reflect a generalization of its scope to include life events and family stories.
