The 'reputation' on my profile is marked neutral, who decides this and who puts the post into this category?  I also noted it is marked (2) but I only see one post under that category.

 

I reread the post and don't view it as offensive.  How do I see the other post if there is indeed two posts that have been reported?

 

I would gladly delete the postings as I don't want to offend anyone on this site.  How do I delete a post, if that is the case?  Can anyone see the reputation category and the posts?  If the posts were deleted would it be removed from my profile?

 

Thanks   :)

A positive number in reputation means someone " liked" your post by pushing the up arrow. This is a function that isn't used much on here. If you have been a member for a while, The " reputation points" were different before the " Upgrade" and you could have some left- over points.

What you worry about are warning points. If you didn't follow the rules of the forum, you would get a warning. A new warning shows when you log- in or refresh your screen. You have to aknowledge it before posting again. So you would know you had one.

Neutral is just the system default. Your reputation is neither bad nor good. But, like I said, its really not a function that is used any longer. People can no longer " vote you down".

Your reputation is visible to everyone. It is zero when you first become a member.
 
In each post, there is a little box on the right side, under the body, but above the signature (if any). When the post is first made, the box is grey and contains the number zero (0).
 
Other members can also see a green square to the left of that box, with an arrow in it pointing up. If a member wishes to, they can click the box with the arrow to express their approval. Doing so will increase the number in the box, and the box will turn green showing the number of votes. A member can only vote once per post, and never on their own posts.
 
Each vote is counted twice. Once on the post where it is made, and once in the profile of the person who made that post.
 
So, in your case, two plus votes have been made. It could be one each on two different posts, or two on the same post.
 
I do not believe deleting a post which has received votes would affect the reputation, but deletion is rare here.
 
For the sake of completeness, there was originally a red down vote button. It was removed last summer, but you may still find old posts where the box is red and contains a negative number.

This is in no way related to the mechanism for reporting objectionable content. Only moderators can see reports.

I hardly ever notice that little up arrow at the bottom right of the posts.  The old system it was more noticeable I think.  But it does work.  I added a one up to your post Sisterlynr.  But I think Peter is right, in the current system it is not used much, it just isn't as noticeable as before.

Okay. . . glad I asked.   :)   So that is similar to the 'like' on Face Book. . . . that's cool.  I have read comments and wanted to like or agree, without writing a reply.  

 

Just to note, this site led me to my diagnosis and I recommend it to to so many people.  I was desperate for a diagnosis so I could receive treatment.   I went online and found questions/replies from people on here.  Once I saw the photos and heard all the like symptoms, I knew without doubt I'd found the answer.  That led me to discussing DH and Dapsone with my PCP.   I'm now on the road to healing.  So many of you have been helpful and it's been a life saver for me!  Thank you so much.   :D

Ha! When I started I thought the green arrow meant "back to top". I couldn't figure out why that thing wouldn't work. But still.... I like you all, I really like you all! :D

    • Awok, Welcome to the forum.  Have you considered trace gluten?  Here is a study on the topic: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3598839/pdf/1471-230X-13-40.pdf It could explain why you felt good for a while.  I personally was glutened badly last summer.  I have no idea what got me.  I suspect either a prescription medication or one gluten free product (not certified).  I ended up on a whole foods diet and avoided even certified processed gluten-free foods including grains until I was healed (three to six months).  
    • I've had a range of symptoms in the last 2 months and in the past few weeks I have discovered that my TTG abs (igA) levels were 41 (my igA tests were fine). The doctor said that he is pretty much certain that it is celiac disease and I am awaiting an endoscopy to confirm it.  Before I found out that my TTG abs (igA) levels were high, I noticed that my body was reacting really badly to dairy products. I went on an elimination diet and stopped all gluten and dairy products and felt much better. I carried this on after my results and thought that I must have developed a dairy intolerance due to my celiac. 2 days ago I accidentally consumed a glass of wine which I thought was dairy free but it contained Milk. I have not had any gluten.  I am currently in the middle of a flare up. All of a sudden rashes have started to appear on my hands and my anxiety has returned (usually not a anxious person). No diarhhoea, vomiting or digestive issues. I am currently suffering from muscle twitching, rashes predominantly on hands and feet, brain fog, pins and needles/numbness on hands, feet and arms. However, I have been tested for milk allergy and this came back negative. Is it possible that it is dairy that is causing my symptoms/autoimmune reaction and could this be a reason for elevetated TTG abs (igA) levels. Or has the doctor only picked up my celiac and missing something else. If it was dairy intolerance then I would have digestive issues but I don't seem to have any. Could it be the casein protein?  Anyone been in a similar situation or can anyone provide some insight? 
    • Hello Everyone, This is my first post here and I am writing to seek help from experienced people here. I have been suffering for over 4 years now and still no where close to having a solution/ satisfactory diagnosis of my problem. My problems started in Mar 2012 with sudden diarrhea which would not go away for days. At first, I was given general antibiotics medication which would help bring down the frequency for some days and then it would come back. Since then it has been going on. I am giving a time line and the series of tests and procedures I have gone through. Would like opinion from experienced and experts here. I can send the scans and reports if required. Would really appreciate the help. Male, Indian origin Mar 2012 - onset of symptoms - multiple bouts diarrhea - spaced 3-4 weeks, bloating, weight loss (to start with I was 74 Kgs), GP managed with antibitocs and loperamide for months Dec 2012 - consulted a GI doc towards end of 2012, Colonoscopy done - conclusion was "IBS" - was advised to manage stress. use Rifaximin and immodium Jan 2013 - Aug 2013 kept moderately fine for 3-4 months ..again started getting frequent diarrhea + weight loss (was around 70 Kgs) Oct 2013 - Consulted another doc, MD - stool and blood test - Ecoli and high Eosinophil Count, medication done for 5-6 months, montinored eosinophil from nov - Mar: always kept high.. came down but then again shot up in a month Mar 2014 - Consulted another GI expert - Endoscopy and duodenal biopsy done - H Pylori and Unremarkable Villious pattern, (weight 68 Kgs) - On and Off diarrhea continued. Given: Ivermectin July 2014 - again same doc - Blood test done: High Eosinophil count,  Colonoscopy and Ileum biopsy - preserved villous architecture, features of eosinophilic enteritis; Endoscopy  + duodenal biospy again - numerous H pylori bacteria, Preserved villous crypt ratio, features of eosinophilic enteritis > conclusion: I have eosinophilic enteritis. Started on Prednisolone (steroids) Aug 2014 - 3-4 days of severe diarrhea> weight came down to 65 Kgs. Hospitalised for 3 days - continued on Prednisolonerios Sep 2014 - After 10 days only again a serious bout of diarrhea - hospitalized again - put on IV fluid for 8 days - weight 59 Kgs. Colonoscopy + biopsy done: features of superimposed c. difficile colitis, non-specific mild colitis > c. difficle test came out negative. CT Enterolysis +Scan done: mesenteric lymphadenopathy > nothing wrong acc to docs. IgA deficiency found - diagnosed Celiac - advised for Gluten free diet.   Sep 14 - May 16: continued gluten-free diet, gained weight upto 63 Kg in Jan 16, but then started losing again and came to 59 Kgs in May. No signficant diarrhea. Minor issues. June 16 onwards: Again diarrhea started, still on gluten-free diet, weight lost - 54 Kgs now. hospitalised again under same GI doc - blood test - eosinophil high, CT Enterolysis done: Showing mucosal thickening in Jejunum and Ileum; Enteroscopy (going in jejunum) + jejunal biopsy - jejunal erosions + villous blunting, marked atrophic with V:C ratio of 0.5: 1 to 0:1. HttG blood test done - Came out negative> Conclusion : No gluten exposure (how?) + Refractory Celiac disease. June - July - have been suffering from continuous diarrhea (goes off for 5-6 days and comes back, bloating, trappings in abdomen - waiting for I don't know what. On Rifaximin + Ivermectin + Codeine Sulphate (for diarrhea) I am very depressed and have no clarity on what's going on. If it is celiac, why am I not doing better on gluten-free diet. If the villous damage is still there in small intestine, then why did I kept fine for Sep - May period? HTTG - negative now but was NOT taken in Sep when I was first diagnosed with celiac. Can we trust negative HTTG now and conclude that it has come down? I am 20 kgs down from my ideal weight and still going down. Have no clue what NOT to eat to stop this. Why is eosinophil always high. Can any of you expert help me to put my case to docs in other countries? With lots of hope, Alok          
    • So, I know I'm obsessing but...... University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center website says any total IgA result over 20 won't affect the celiac test.   If this is so,  I'm still confused as to what a weak positive ttg iga means even though her result was barely in this category.  Why bother having a weak positive anyway?   I just don't get it and our doc is on vacation so I won't know what he'll recommend for another week.  I'll be finding out this week if we can see a GI without a referral. Our lyme doc (she's had lyme, may still have it, like I said it's a long story) is having her do an IgG wheat test but I don't think that has any bearing on celiac does it?    
    • Hi!  I've had good luck at the Minnesota state fair because most food booths are only doing one thing so there is no cross-contamination. For example: french fries or chocolate covered bacon or Indian kebabs.   But I live in California and I am heading to the state fair today! Does anybody have any great food suggestions that are definitely gluten-free there? Thanks, Celiac C.
