You people!!! :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:

If you were to bother to educate yourselves and read all the science I have read but can't be bothered to look up right now, you'd realize that NONE of your B12 remedies will work UNLESS you expose the tablets to the full moon as close to the spring equinox as possible AND you can only purchase them from the site that charges you twice as much, but guarantees that they've been chanted over to remove residual evil from the manufacturing process (touching metal and all that).

No wonder none of you are getting any better. <_<

I thought there was a goat sacrifice involved..... :blink:

I think people are people, sometimes people are grumpy, sometimes they take things the wrong way etc. I'm not sure there is a really nice way of saying someone is wrong? Obviously they think they are right. and most people get defensive when they are called into questions I think. I just leave it - even if someone is glaringly wrong about something I'll let others say something because I can't be bothered arguing over things. Having said that - this is by far one of the the nicest forums I have ever been on. You want to see mean, bitchy and critical? Log onto mothers forums - I swear - they are something else :lol:

I thought you had to crush the B12 and sprinkle it into your bra as powder? :D

I tried that. My boobs got bigger but I was still feeling lousy.

Problem with not saying anything is that everyone ends up thinking the can't lick envelopes or drink tea because of imaginary gluten! :lol: The Internet is a very weird place.

Little do they know that vitamin B12 manufactured during a full moon that has been put in the trunk of a hollow oak tree for six months and then homeopathically treated with the color blue would let them lick envelopes without fear. ;)

If it was my reaction to a 15-year old review article that set this off (which I suspected from the moment I saw the post), you might notice I apologized in the thread.

My husband has volunteered to do this for me. What a guy! :rolleyes:

I don't think a single forum exists out there with *no* drama - and if it does, it only has a single member. :lol: I run a forum, I get how difficult it can be to maintain the peace. I think this one has seemed quite nice and welcoming thus far, but I'm used to boards full of catty bored women. :P People need to do their best to type as though they were speaking to one face to face... beyond that? Taking the good and leaving the bad is my best advice. :)

OK guys! I want to see some valid research on this B12 stuff! Please include your pics of aliens or the Yeti. :P

When I took a sublingual B12 ( it must not have had the full moon Rx) an alien took ahold of my body and threatened to feed me to the Yeti. I pleaded and said "no, no, not the Yeti," and he said "Oh, all right, I'll just give you a face full of acne". Do you think it was a glutenized alien that he was able to summon forth acne like that? I'm sorry, I have no pics for documentation, either of the alien or the acne :P and fortunately didn't get as far as the Yeti.

Staying on Topic....with respect to the OP:

If I didn't know better, I would say there was a full moon rising in these recent days. :unsure:

I used to make fly by pass and post a response to a questions when I checked my computer. Now, I have to think, analyze and think again, to insure it's dissection won't be too painful. And yet, I still don't get it right. Now that's not right, I'm sorry to say. :huh: It saddens me, terribly.

Sometimes words expressed, are hiding the brokenness we have all felt at times in our lives. We should respect that more when we choose to respond and lighten up a bit. IMHO.

haha! Yes, so true. The internet has allowed a new world to open up - those daytime tv shows have lost some of their viewership to things like mommy forums and scrapbooking message boards. :D

Thanks! Glad to be here. ;)

One other point I forgot to make: The whole thing about backing every little thing up with official research. Research in the area of GI is really far behind what many of us on here already know. If we only followed published research, then those of us with NCGI would not have "existed" before 2009, and largely still don't if you look at the medical community at large. So while I always appreciate having research to back things up, for me I think there is a grayer area where people's personal experience is really valuable. If all I wanted was PubMed docs I could get that elsewhere. What I am here for is living breathing individual experiences that fill in the blanks where current research is lacking. Official research is icing for me, not a requirement...and if someone tells me that slipping b12 tabs into my bra each morning will give me a boost, I'll be sure to research it myself before proceeding! :)

I sooooo agreee!!!! BRAVO!

Also....You know GUYS....theres allways the negitive button. I overstepped once when I was first diagnosed...but the moderators sure put me if my place! I was sooo offended by what someone had done that I said something...and was told that it was a miss understanding.But being still glutened and irritable and very emotoonal ...I remember it felt like such a harsh slap in the face ..especialy that (-) mark glaring at me!

I felt so hurt (the gluten again) I allmost didn't come back! But I realized I was being over emotional and appologized to the poster and the board in general!I remembered feeling like EVERYONE was AGAINST me! It was Just me though....noone else even cared! It's easy to get to emotoanal...selfcentered..and whatnot when your sick...it's part of our disease...we have embalances...no one day is the same! and we should allways take that into acount..you never know where people are mentaly when they write things...they probably have no IDEA how there coming off! Look at KARANG...LOL she comes off harsh sometimes ..but extreamly caring and sweet at other times...once I got to know her better...I realized she just has a very sharp wit(Dry sence of hummor)

But is actually a very nice person!

But like I said...Its easy to take offense (and misspell..LOL)...But if your REALLY ERKED...USE THE NEGITIVE BUTTON!!! :ph34r:B)

( p.s. Heart you KARANG...don't take this the wrong way...your just a good examle because you come across harsh sometimes..LOL..and your not the ONLY moderater either...but once you get to know a persons personality better, it's not so harsh!) :D:D:D

    • 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".
