Newly Diagnosed, Looking For An Md In Slc, Utah

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I was just diagnosed with DH after having this misdiagnosed rash for almost 5 years now. It disappeared while I was pregnant and came back postpartum with a vengence, until I finally decided I needed to see another doctor about it, because I was convinced that it was not just eczema like a previous MD had said. I did a little research of my own before going to the doctor and found some info about DH that perfectly described what I was suffering through. So in short, I went in to a walk-in clinic up in Calgary, Canada and insisted on a skin biopsy and the blood work to test for Celiac. It all came back positive, so here I am, newly gluten-free without much of a support group. Anyhow, I am only in Canada temporarily, I'm staying with family here while my husband is in Iraq, and I will be headed back to SLC soon and I really need a doctor in that area who will be open and willing to work this through with me. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! TIA!

Some great gastroenterologists would be Dr. Dan Jackson and Dr. Janet Harnsberger. I go to a great Naturopathic doctor named Dr. Todd Cameron. Good luck!

Dr Jackson and Dr Harnsberger are both fantastic, however they are pediatricians.

Dr Ann Richards on 2000 S. 900 E. in SLC knows celiac disease.

These names are great to start with. Let's hope a few more surface here, I am also transitioning to gluten-free in the SLC area and am having a hard time finding doctors who get it.

A few months back at the SL GIG meeting a Dr. Karnam (I think that was how you spelled it) from the Provo area spoke to the group. He seemed extremely knowledgeable about Celiac disease. I live in the SLC area and thought about driving down to see him, haven't done it yet.

Kareng, I am a bit concerned by your statement here.  I no longer have "out of control" DH, but smaller, more scattered, and more readily resolving (for the most part) flareups.  And it may be that I am just having what would be "normal" for a person in my situation, being 'only' 13 months into the gluten-free diet.  I will readily admit, and perhaps should stress, that the situation is very much better than it was before I went gluten-free, including the fact that my former GI symptoms have tot
