New To The Forum But Not To Celiac

4 posts in this topic

I am new to the forum but have been reading info from Celiac.com for quite some time and it has really helped me. I have been gluten-free for 2 years now and also have MS. Getting diagnosed with Celiac was one of the best things that has ever happened to me since now I have my life back and continue to feel better all the time...unless I have made errors and that is where this forum comes in. I need to continue learning so I will not accidentally make an error...especially at the wrong time. We all know about that.

Now, for the tech question. Is there an easy place to search for a topic, especially in depth? I must have missed this on the site. I have limited time, as most do, and cannot simply read thru everything. So, any tips would be appreciated. I made a few posts...but am not sure where to check my posts to see who answered without going thru the different forums and searching for my post. There has to be a way to mark my posts to save time.

Sorry for my ignorance and I appreciate everyone's help in advance.

There are lots of ways to use this forum, but here are a couple which might be of use to you. In the upper righthand corner of the page once you have logged on you will find a box with your user name. Click on the box and it will give you a pulldown menu. Click on My Profile, and in the box that comes up, besides a lot of interesting information, you will see in the line across the top of the box, several clickable buttons. By clicking on Topics you can find the latest topics you have started; by clicking on Posts you can find the latest posts you have made. Down the lefthand side of this page you will find My Content. Click on this and you willl find every thread in which you have made a post (for the last 12 months I believe).

Another way to identify threads that you are posting in is to click (on the index page) on View New Content. This will bring up all posts made by all posters in the last 24 hours (or since you last logged on). There are various colours in the boxes next to these posts and some (if you look closely enough) will have a diagonal bar through the lower righthand corner which, on closer examination is revealed to be a pencil, meaning that that is a athread which you have made a post in.

If you want to find all posts made in the last 24 hours, go to the forum index page and the line across the bottom has a button, Today's Active Content, which willl give you all posts made in the last 24 hours regardless of whether you have logged on or not. There are other ways of following threads on the forum, but as a moderator I do not use them. Someone else may explain them for you.

In addition to Shroomie's suggestions, a quick way to search the forum is --can you see up in the right hand corner, under the CELIAC.COM BLUE Banner and your profile, there is a

SEARCH FORUM VIA GOOGLE.

Type in the topic you are looking for and related threads will appear in a new screen.

Hope this helps!

    • I think the gripe with this sort of article is that it's not telling the right story. When you write anything, you have a choice about whose story you tell and the consequences of it.  While such articles are factual in the sense that objectively, a GFD is worse than a similar regular one, the focus of these articles undermines the struggles of those who must be gluten-free while also not really giving any information that is likely to result in changed behaviour. All this sort of article does is justify the anti-gluten-free circlejerk. I think many of the journalists here think they're on the side of people with celiac disease because they're underlining that the fad diet is dumb/pointless/harmful/whatever. While this may be true, the message the reader remembers is this: the GFD is frivolous. It doesn't matter if there's a line in the article that says something about how the GFD is a medical necessity for those with celiac disease. People don't remember the asterisk in the article. All they remember is that the GFD is for idiots.  What would be valuable and useful is discussing celiac disease - symptoms, longterm consequences etc. and how strict those with celiac disease must be with the GFD in the context of this research. This will do a better job of convincing people that the fad diet is dumb, but do so in a responsible way that doesn't undermine the real problems faced by those with celiac disease or other medical conditions. Plus, the increased awareness might make someone realize that they should get tested.
    • I had to run go google zonulin. Never heard of that! Makes perfect sense though.. I assume every single person on earth with AI disease has leaky gut! Ya know, I drank several glasses to a bottle of merlot every night after work to "unwind" for many years before I figured out it aggravating the leaky gut! I'm SO glad I quit before it did more damage ... Seriously, metformin is awesome. I love it. Great for metabolic resistance and free at a lot of places with an RX!
    • I am on Armour too.  No metformin for me yet.  I am trying to manage on a low carb high fat diet for many reasons like having a damaged gut and being allergic to so many meds (yah know....swelling, hives, etc.).  Leaky gut.  Nope.  Better.  Zonulin seems to be increased in celiacs.  I am going to blame my gut on that!  Seriously, there seems to be a link.  
    • Dang, Ennis.  You rock!  Ironic and I must be near brain dead.  Did I mention that school is out today!!!!!!  I feel so sleep deprived!  S U M M E R! 
    • Wow you have ALOT going on! Sorry to hear about your ongoing issues. Are you super duper strict with avoiding gluten or do you think you are still getting cross contamination? I will check out that portion of the forum- THANKS a bunch for that. It is all a bit overwhelming. I saw some people post that they saw "dramatic improvement!" within 2 weeks and I'm going rreeeaaalllly? *insert sarcasm.. haha. I know I wont get that lucky. I take metformin and armour and victoza. Type 2 diabetes runs in my family too. My glucose levels were never really high and I never got the official type 2 diagnosis but ive dropped all excess weight on these meds. I hope to wean soon. Did you fix the leaky gut? That is a daunting task isn't it!
