@ Amy that is very discouraging, I went to my primary doctor and insisted he do a Vitamin D Test, he told me that people my age don't have issues with Vitamin D, after getting the results back, we found that he was wrong... and I am now taking a Supplement.  I went ahead and made an appointment with Dr. Kruegar, however he doesn't have new patient openings till the end of January. I've gone from two bald patches to 11 patches in less than two week :-/

I saw DR. Kruegar, he is at the u of u. He knows a lot but is very old school. You have to have thick skin to see him. His bedside manner is very lacking. There are many that Dr's that dabble in this area.  I have been really tempted to find a dr out of state. Find one that does tests and doesn't just hand you a prescription for rogaine or propecia. Good luck!!

I was wondering if anyone knows of a Dermatologist in Salt Lake City that specializes in AA? I am currently seeing Dr.  Jackie Panko at IHC in Taylorsville, she is wonderful, but if there is someone with more direct experience with Alopecia I'd like to find the best I can in SLC. I'm new to Alopecia and don't know anyone that also deals with this condition. Thanks Jeff

Hello fellow Utahns!
I just started the process of planning a 5k for raising awareness for Alopecia here in Utah sometime in September. If you are interested in helping in anyway please let me know I would love some volunteers!

I work out in a scarf... I don't think I could ever do that in a wig. Too much hassle!

I go to Headcovers by Joni, too! She's absolutely amazing.
