Something That Really Annoys Me!
0

6 posts in this topic

Sometimes, I cannot get here to read the posts for a few days. When I click on new content, it nicely brings up all the posts since my last visit. However, sometimes there are 6 or 7 pages and I dont have time to glance thru them all in one sitting. Here's where I get annoyed! After a certain amount of time, say 1 hour, it no longer shows me the new content that I was skimming thru, and instead "resets" itself so that I am only seeing the new content since my CURRENT visit. Then I lose all those posts that I was skimming thru and I have no idea what I missed. I dont like it.

Go into the topic index page, and at the bottom on the left, it says "Active Content for Last 24 hours" (I just did that) and all the posts will come up :)

Okay I will try that. At least that gets me the last 24 hours worth, but the rest of the things I will have to hunt through on my own I guess. I still wish it would let me finish reading the "new content" until I'm finished!

I used to be like McPhena, all grouchy about losing the new posts list. But no more.

I use Firefox, and right click open in new tab for each topic. If there are lots of pages I will open the 2nd or 3rd "New content" page listing in a new window also. You are right, unless you open them within a short time they do time out and disappear. So I open all the threads in new tabs and then start reading them.

Now life is just a bowl of cherries. With pits but hey, who's complaining? :D

Hey, that's a good idea! I'll just do that from now on, thanks! See, I knew I would get a solution if I posted, now I can quit being annoyed ;)

I follow the threads that I'm interested in. I set up my "settings" so that I get an email from the administrators or forum anytime a new post is made on a thread I'm participating in or following. Now granted, sometimes I'll get 45 emails but I can delete the email when I've read it or save it if I don't have time to go to the thread then. It also allows me to save particularly helpful posts in my Celiac Forum email folder.

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
