I need a doctor, any doctor @ this point, who knows anything about HypoThyroid, Celiac, or Progesterone deficiency. I am tired of being told nothing is wrong, that I need a shrink & exercise! :angry: Thanks for any suggestions!

Ask the local Celiac support group. They'll know the local docs that are informed about Celiac.

I just read your posting, which is now over a year ago.

The doctors at Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas have been wonderful at helping me find the root cause of my problems, which is Celiac's. Here are their names:

OB/Endocrinologist: Dr. Lisa Halvorson

Hematologist: Dr. Rutherford

Gastroenterologist: Dr. Tang

So far, I have been unable to find a doctor who can help me heal up...day to day questions about things.

I'm still searching!

UT Southwestern is an excellent facility. My brother goes to a doctor there for MS (one of the leading MS doctors in the country) and my mom goes to a doctor there for Alzheimers (she was dx'd 10 yrs ago, but we saw symptoms at least a few years before).

My family has had excellent care from UT Southwestern. If I still lived in Dallas, I would have checked out the GI's there as well.
