Tech Challenged Or Rotten Apple?
0

8 posts in this topic

I am having problems navigating and wonder if it's my baby-boomer granny brain or my iPhone. I have never seen a Help button. I can't figure out how to get to my profile. I admit to being a tad slow now and then but usually with patience I can figure out a new site or app.

Could be my Celiac/HD/Hashi's has rendered me stupid I suppose. :-)

Any suggestions?

Wish I could help. I find it hard to do on my iPhone. I don't think everything shows up. I use an iPad or PC.

Thanks kereng

I think you are right. My only online connection just now is my iPhone. I did all my Christmas shopping on it last year!

I just hate missing anything on this terrific site. I know that I can't access things that require Flash. That's an Apple decision that I hope changes with the next version.

Here is the help area. On my PC the help link is in the upper-right just below my name. It's so tiny you might miss it on an iPhone.

To get to your profile, use the grey dropdown at the upper right-hand corner of the board that appears when you click your name. It should be OK because it's not Flash but I find it hard to use on my Kindle unless I zoom way in. Clicking "My Content" in that menu will show all the threads you started or posted in. Also here is the link to your profile I get when I click on your name next to one of your posts.

I can't thank you enough for you efforts to help me. I am convinced that it is indeed the iPhone. I am not seeing many of the references, like my name on the page, options, etc. There is an "Option" at the bottom of the page to download an IP.Board app for phone but the link doesn't work.

I am determined to make the best of it and ride it out. It any mods are techies maybe they can help, but it doesn't keep me from thoroughly enjoying the forum.

Thx for all your help and advice.

Linda

    • 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. 
    • 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!  
    • I'm sure going to have a long talk with my doctor.  Then I'll find a new one that will support me and make sure that my daughter and I both have the proper testing done yearly.  
    • also:  glutendude - i don't get it.  shouldn't it be glutenfreedude?  lolz i eat out few and far between.  most of the times i've been glutened it's been eating out.  this weekend i'm getting my bacon cheeseburger on at red robin  i always get my 'good' waitress - lucky, i guess, paula takes good care of me   and i will eat at bonefish but they have a limited 'safe' menu.  look for places that have the 'GiG'  training they know their stuff.  mellow mushroom, melting pot, california pizza kitchen, pf changs are all supposed to be trained that way.  they know to avoid cc and change their gloves, etc.
