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!

Hi Jen!

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.

    • They are very highly refined and should not contain gluten.   If you aren't ingesting it, it is safe.  You could roll in wheat flour - if you could keep it out of your mouth.   i stay away from stuff with obvious wheat -usually wheat germ oil.  But I know Celiacs that very carefully use hair products with wheat germ oil for thier curly hair.  I just tend to get shampoo in my mouth .
    • That's a very normal reaction believe it or not. I would always tell someone to stay on gluten before testing is done because it's a lot easier staying on it than it is reintroducing it. I felt worse on my challenge than I had before giving it up the first time.  Whilst a definite diagnosis is the aim of many (I tried myself) and has benefits in terms of health monitoring etc there is no treatment other than the gluten-free diet so if you get negative or inconclusive results and can't face the further challenge you could choose to forgo it and just go gluten free.  Either way there will be plenty of support for you here. all the best.
    • Thank you so much. 8-12 weeks! Oh my goodness, I don't think I can do that. I think going gluten-free made my body's defenses go down or something. I felt bad before, but reintroducing it was completely awful! I still feel queezy a few days later. Let's pray it just comes back positive. lol
    • Thanks for the feedback!  Gemini you're very right - surgery was a totally weird recommendation.  My current doctor treated me without hormones because my TSH levels are normal. The doctor found that my Vitamin D levels were severely low and put me on a high dose. They climbed just out of the deficient range. I am very active and frequently outdoors,  and they still only climb out of deficient If i'm on intensive VIitamin D supplementation.  -  In addition, She also suggested I  a modified lower carb diet (I'm at a healthy weight, there was no reduction in calories, just an increase in protein and fat and a reduction in carbs,  a low reduction, slightly above the recommendations for a diabetic), which the doctor recommended for PCOS.  Both of these coincided correlated with a slight reduction in the anti-thyroid antibodies and a slight reduction in nodule size. My TSH levels have remained stable, so it was incorrect to say function, really just a reduction in the level of attack (but the thyroid levels are still high).  The doctor that recommended surgery did so because "you're about to start college and you won't have time for monitoring,  it will eventually fail. If we remove it now, you can just go on Synthroid and you'll never have to deal with the levels being out of whack."  Yeah.... I was 18 then.... I'm now 27, but my Mom just went "NOPE!" and got a second opinion.  This person was fine, but all he did was monitor to make sure the TSH levels stayed ok.  They did, I just have a goiter and several nodules.  The most recent endo. I've seen, who put me on intensive Vitamin D therapy and worked with me on the diet,  felt like she was thorough (again minus completely dismissing the first celiac results. I think the D supplementation and diet were associated with a decrease (but obviously didn't and really couldn't reverse the outcome of the disease) in antibodies and nodule size because my TSH levels have yet to get out of whack. I also wonder if with fewer carbs, I ate less (thought still too much If I'm celiac) gluten, and  that could have been more a factor in the correlation.  Gemini- I'm glad that you have found a good treatment that keeps your levels where they need to be!  I also really appreciate the welcome. Update:  I have a referral to a GI specialist! I don't want to have Celiac... I love to travel, and I'm very social. I live in the US but my family is from Uruguay, South America, so I carry this Latin Cultural thing about loving to share food and seeing it as such a huge part of hospitality and community.  I know that food in social settings gets hard to navigate...But I feel a sense of relief to think that I might have an answer to other health questions and that there is a way that I can stop or at least slow damage.   
    • These can be sourced from various ingredients one being wheat. Please check with the manufacture of your products to figure out if they contain gluten or how they are made....and yes gluten in your makeup, and especially lotion, shower gel, etc is a huge issues. Consider this, gluten contamination can happen from gluten protein residue. How often would you touch your arms, hair, etc or use your hands and touch your food, plate, fork, spoon before putting it in your mouth? Do you bite your nails, sometimes pick up a mint or gum? Hate to say it this way but if you use gluten containing stuff like that shit will happen with cross contamination. Consider changing over to a dedicated gluten-free version of hygiene products and save your self the drama. I use EO products, The Seaweed Co, Savvy Naturals, Hugo Naturals, and Vaseline products products without issues personally.
