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.
What is chronic kidney disease?
Chronic kidney disease happens when your kidneys no longer filter your blood the way they should, so wastes build up in your blood. This has probably been going on for years, and it may keep getting worse over time. If your disease gets worse, you could have kidney failure.
Diabetes and high blood pressure cause most chronic kidney disease. Controlling those diseases can help slow or stop the damage to your kidneys.

What is my life expectancy with celiac disease?
Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates answered
If celiac disease is properly managed, most people diagnosed with celiac disease can have a normal life expectancy. However, if celiac disease is not treated with a diet that is completely free of gluten, then the damage that is caused to the small intestine will continue and it could potentially be life threatening. When celiac disease goes untreated in adults or children, they become malnourished. Liver diseases and cancers of the digestive tract can also occur as a result of long-term unmanaged celiac disease. The most important thing if you suspect you or someone you care for has celiac disease is to get diagnosed so treatment can begin.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
