I know, it's a problem. We've been helped by Dr. Lyon, in the Luverne, MN, clinic. It's a Sanford system clinic. Dr. Lyon has family members with celiac. Our visits to him were very helpful,both for children and adults in the family. We also saw a nutritionist at this clinic upon initial diagnosis. There are two local support groups, one in Sioux Falls, and one in Luverne. Have you met up with either of them? If you need more information, let me know! Good luck.

I'm afraid so..... I've been lurking for quite a while! I pick up lots of good ideas, and don't usually feel I have much to add except sympathy!

Hello,

I currently live in Brookings, SD and have been searching for a doctor to test to see if I have a gluten sensitivity. (I am fairly certain that I do, but I would just like to confirm). Have you found a good doctor in the Sioux Falls area?

I am not sure the original posters are still around, but any medical doctor can run the celiac panel:

 
-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG
-Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG
-EMA IgA 
-total serum IgA and IgG (control test)
-AGA IGA and AGA IgG - older and less reliable tests largely replace by the DGP tests
 
-endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken
 
VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.

Welcome to the forum and let us know how it goes!
