I'm a newbie to the forum, first post this morning :) Just a bit worried about how to reply (some people tend to 'quote', in a blue square, which thread of the postings they are responding to, which I imagine can sometimes be helpful/clarifying). Also, my profile details does not seem to include the photo I added, and there is a disturbing 'warn status' under me name. just little things, but I don't want to be making blunders. Ta, tarni

If you hit reply in the post it will include the post as a quote. If you hit the add reply under the post you won't have the quote. The warn is something only you can see and don't be disturbed by it. If you get a warning, for example for posting in a rude manner or for advertising your own business in a post, the mods will contact you and tell you what you got the warning for. Most of us never see that warn symbol lit up.

Also be aware that when you are first posting the mods will need to clear your post before it is visible. This keeps the board safe from spam.

Welcome to the forum.

If you want to reply by quoting what someone has said, hit the "Reply" button on the right of the bottom of that post. That will bring up the blue square box. You can even edit that box by deleting parts of it that you are not replying to by highlighting and deleting. Then type your reply underneath the box and click "Add Reply"

Can't help you with photos, sorry. I am not photographically literate :P .

As for the warn status, only you and the moderators can see this box. You will seldom have to be concerned with this box unless you break any of the forum rules which you presumably read when you signed up; i.e., do not advertise or promote blogs in your posts, do not attack others, etc.

Thank you all, I think I'm getting the hang of it, and I worked out that I needed to goto Avatare on the 'edit my profile screen' to get my photo up. tarni in Oz

You can (and should) post links to sites which are relevant to the topic, and with which you are at arm's length--that is, not beneficially connnected.

You must not post links to sites which are your own (including your blog), or which are owned by your employer.

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
