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.

    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much! 
    • Hi Calla, I think the safe answer is 12 weeks on gluten for a blood test.  I am pretty sure they say 2 weeks on gluten for the gut endoscopy.  But usually people/doctors don't want to  do an endoscopy before a positive blood test, so catch 22 there. There's a chance you still have active antibodies in your blood after 3 weeks off gluten.  But nobody can tell you for sure.  If you can get you doctor to test you now and in 9 more weeks if you are negative now, that might work.  If the doctor is willing to do 2 tests, that would be great. The best thing would have been to do all celiac disease testing before going gluten-free.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. The University of Chicago celiac center has an FAQ that answers some of your questions. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/i-dont-have-the-money-to-get-tested-for-celiac-disease-but-a-gluten-free-diet-makes-me-feel-better-is-it-okay-to-start-the-diet-without-being-diagnosed/ Welcome to the forum!
