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.

    • cyclinglady, I think Joseph is hoping to exclude celiac disease.   I feel for him, as I also had a hard time accepting my daughter's celiac.      I had this gene test done hoping our GI doctor made a terrible mistake.   But now I have triple prove that my daughter really does have it! I agree with you and others, that if biopsy confirmed celiac disease, you do have celiac disease. (But on occasion, doctors can be wrong, right?) However, I have a distant relative (not related by blood) who thought she had celiac diease for 10 years (no biopsy done), lived a strict gluten free life style, but still suffered from health issues, ended up in the mayo clinic, and found out that she did not have celiac.    She did not have the celiac gene.
    • Our doctor ordered the Prometheus Celiac Plus test for us.   It is some sort of in depth celiac blood test.   This test report showed  which celiac gene my daughter has.   I think you can ask your GI for a celiac blood test with EMA.   When I asked for the EMA test, we got this Celiac plus results back.   I believe Prometheus is the name of the lab. Our insurance paid for this test.   If your insurance won't pay for it, I know there is a lab in Colorado that offer this test for a few hundred bucks.   You have to google for it.   I forgot their name.
    • Why?  Some 35% of the population carries the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  But only a few actually develop it.  It is used to exclude celiac disease and not to diagnose it.  There are some outlier genes too that have been discovered recently, so the gene test is not perfect.   My daughter has tested negative on the antibodies test.  She will have to get retested in the future. But we will not get the gene test.  It may impact her ability to get life insurance or maybe even health!  Just something to consider.  
    • It will turn around, but it probably is going to take more time.  Yes, adhering to the gluten-free diet is critical,  but what doctors fail to tell you is that is can take time for antibodies to decrease.  For some it is a few weeks and for others months to years.   It sounds like you are doing everything right.  Remember, her gut is damaged and eating anything can hurt to digest.  You might consider taking her off dairy for a few weeks until you see improvement.  Then add back in starting with products with the least amount of lactose (e.g. yogurt). Many celiacs are temporarily lactose intolerant.  It might help with the nausea.   When I accidentally get exposed to gluten, I stick with soups and stews, even cooked fruit, like applesauce because it hurts to eat!   Are you sure the medication she is taking is gluten free?  Did you call and confirm with the manufacturer?  Did she have nausea befor she was diagnised?  The side effect of this medication is nausea.  Did the GI prescribe?   Hang in there!  
    • My 10 year old daughter has been on the gluten-free diet for 6 weeks, and she's feeling worse than before the diagnosis. She has very little appetite, has frequent nausea in the evening, and has lost a pound or two that she really can't afford to lose. Our whole household is gluten free except for a few prepackaged items kept in a different room, so I think there's very little chance of cross-contact. She has been put on cyproheptadine to increase appetite and is trying valiantly to eat more, but she's just not hungry and it's very stressful for her, and all of us. She's eating peanut butter, pediasure, avocado, cheese, meat, and all the other calorie-dense foods we can think of.  No oats, not too much processed food. Can anyone give us suggestions or hope that this will turn around?
