What is the top killer of both men and women in the United States?
Heart disease is the number one killer of both men and women in the United States. In addition, someone has a heart attack every 34 seconds. It doesn’t have to be this way. You can take preventive measures to protect your heart health, like eating a heart-healthy diet, maintaining your ideal weight, exercising, not smoking, and having your blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglycerides checked at least once a year.
What is a spinal cord injury specialist?

What type of doctor would I see for dizziness and shaking?
You will likely first see your primary care physician to see if these symptoms may be related to an endocrinologic problem such as diabetes or thyroid disorder, or potentially cardiac in origin such as an arrhythmia like atrial fibrillation. If there is a sense of the room spinning or rotational movement, this is called vertigo which can be better evaluated by a neurologist.
