Hard To Keep Up With All The Posts
0

13 posts in this topic

Okay, I haven't been a member for very long. But I'm noticing more all the time how hard it is to keep up with all the posts on here. It's getting more and more popular. I went on today at lunch and there were 3 pages of new posts and 3 more pages after work. I'm not complaining or saying anything should be done to fix it. I was just surprised that so many are constantly building up. Does anybody read every post? I probably only even read about 1/4 or so, because it's too time consuming to read them all. And I know I'm probably missing out on some important or cool info.

:)

You are so right, it's really hard to read all of the posts, so I have to be a bit picky. I do try and pop into the new ones at least once and see what they are about. If I can't help or it doesn't immediately pertain to my situation now, I usually let them slide for a few days, then try and check in later when things are quiet here. For instance, if someone is looking for travel info back East, then I won't bother with it, as I'm out West :D

I read most posts. I don't have DH, so I usually won't read those...I don't read about stuff like "local stores in ____, CA" since I'm on the East coast. I read most everything else, but then again, it's the summer, so I have plenty of time.

During the school year I'm much more picky... I check the new ones and then drop some if they aren't interesting to me--like Viola.

I also read them most of the time but yesterday I was gone for about 3 hours and came back and there was a page and a half of new posts :o It's a good thing the site is getting more popular though :D When I have courses I take though I can't be on here as much so only will read the ones in certain sections.

It is hard some days to keep up with the posts, especially if you are out most of the day :) I think it is great though! I love getting all the posts. Obviously I don't read all of them, but I reply to the ones that I think I can give helpful advice, humor, or share a simliar "story" ;)

I read most of them, but don't get involved or read ones that don't apply to me, or that I have no info to offer...

I check in a lot during work too. When it's slow I come on here a few times a day. We were really busy last week after a while of being slow and I said to my husband "It was so busy today I didn't have time to check the celiac board!" I guess it's a sign of how much work I have as to whether or not I come on the board.

I would like to be able to check all of the posts since a lot of times the comments go off to another topic or people post interesting things. It is good though that more and more people are joining. That means people are learning about this!

Some days it is all I can do to check in on those I have already posted to. Is there a way to get more than the last ten?

Other days, I go through and look at most of them, checking to see if I can add more than those who have already posted. Unless I can add something of value, I just back out and move on to the next one.

It's summertime, and so I share my cpu time with my kids, so I don't get on as much as I like to. When I find pages and pages, I pick and choose what I read, just as the others have said. During the school year, I read most of the threads. Of course, since we have so many more posters now, that might change!

Definitely! Either go to "today's active topics" on the main page, or, even better, between "my assistant" and the # of new messages, "View New Posts" will show you all the posts since you last got on the board...now, stay away for a week and that will be five pages...I get at least 2-3 pgs. each day...the reason it's not more than 5 each week is because at a point, there aren't too many new ones being created, but people posting a lot under the old ones.... I'm rambling.

SHORT ANSWER: yes, go to "view new posts".

Thanks, celiac3270. I meant more than my last ten posts. I use the assistant regularly. It is a great way to just see what's been up since my last visit. I just tend to post more than ten times when I am in here and I like to see if anyone has commented or asked an additional question after my post.

    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy. 
    • Pork Fried Rice  (Gluten Free, Dairy Free) Prep time: About 15 minutes Cook time: About 10 minutes Makes: 3-4 servings   Ingredients: 4 Pork Chops,  1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4-1/2 teaspoons black pepper 1/4-1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional) 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil 1/2 large or 1 small onion 2 large carrots 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 green cabbage, very finely sliced 1-2 heads of broccoli, roasted and salted(optional) 2-3 eggs 2-3 cups cooked white rice  2 Tablespoons gluten-free Tamari or Coconut Aminos Sriracha (optional)   Instructions: 1. Cut pork chops into small bite sized pieces.  2. Next add a tablespoon of coconut oil to a large wok and heat on medium-high heat for a about a minute.   3. Add your chopped pork chops to the wok and season with the salt, black pepper.  Cook for about 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned. 4. While your pork chops are cooking, dice your onion, mince your garlic cloves, chop your carrots and finely slice your cabbage. 5. Once your pork is lightly browned, add all your veggies and stir fry over medium-high heat fro about 5 minutes. 6. Make a hole in the middle of your veggies and add your eggs.  Scramble your eggs with a big metal spatula until they are cooked and then mix everything together. 7. Add your cooked rice and about 2 Tablespoons of Tamari. Mix everything together and cook for another 3-4 minutes or just enough to warm up the rice.
    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!
