Hi! I as well played tennis and on a gluten free diet. I had to give up on most foods that I am taking before and boy its working wonders on me. I became faster and attentive in playing the sports. I am no pro but maybe in due time compete with excellent players out there.

During a recent interview he said this. Q. We know you have changed your diet from the end of last year. I was wondering what you ate last night and what you ate this morning right before the match, and what are you going to do tonight?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: I'll give you a simple answer: last night I didn't have any gluten, and tonight I will have a bunch of gluten ? and alcohol.

So Djokovic is not really 100 % gluten free , thanks to people like him our disease will mean a fad diet , oh well hope he the gluten he ate will make him lose everything he won . Del Potro beat him a few days after that interview :) I can't stand 50 % gluten free fad dieters !

I bet he doesn't even know what 100 % gluten free means lol . I'm no fan of Federer , but Federer completely outplayed him at the French Open. It had nothing to do with if Djokovic ate gluten before the match lol . I don't believe Djokovic has got a problem with gluten after hearing that interview. He should just go back to normal food and stop making the only treatment for celiac disease look like a fad diet.

No , I don't think so , but a lot of people were saying on blogs comments like , " eat as much gluten as you like you deserve it " etc . He doesn't do any favour's to celiac's . Sure it's up to him what to eat but know need to brag about it . Now people think Djokovic eats gluten so I should also eat gluten and I don't because i'm just being fussy by eating gluten free .

Well he makes it look like gluten free diet turns you into a super human lol . I meant him saying he is gluten free but still eats gluten is bad for celiac's . Unfortunately I haven't been able to play tennis for 6 years due to back and other stomach problems . But before I was diagnosed I won a few tournament and after I was diagnosed I didn't have enough energy to play lol . Has being gluten free helped you ?

Sorry for the late answer, yes it has helped me plenty. My muscles used to be really tense from anxiety.

    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      I can!   Start with hard cheeses, then yogurt/butter, soft cheeses and finally milk/cream.  Start slowly and build.  Give yourself time to get your body to release the enzymes necessary to digest lactose.  Certified gluten-free enzymes for lactose can help the transition.  Lactose free milk and ice cream are helpful too.  Remember, that genetically some of us are predisposed to being lactose intolerant no matter what (e.g. aging, race).   I wish you success!      
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      Here is a link that explains why you should get tested (completely) for celiac disease: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/diagnosing-celiac-disease/diagnosis/ As far as the link to the functional doctor....why?  If you get a celiac diagnosis, chances are you will heal on a gluten free diet.  As you have probably seen on this forum, most of us encourage newly diagnosed members to eat a whole-foods, easy-to-digest (a.k.a "cooked to death")  gluten-free diet to speed healing.  Going Paleo might not be the best right now, if you have celiac disease.  Eating lots of nuts, raw fruits and veggies can be tough on a damaged gut.  You can try that diet later!   Everyone is different due to various degrees of damage, so some may have temporary intolerances  (e.g. lactose).  You just have to experiment.   Save your money and spend it on good wholesome food.  I heartily support getting away from the SAD (Standard American Diet).   Celiac disease is the one autoimmune disorder that is healed by avoiding a food -- gluten!  
    • Itchy skin
      I have DH and itchy skin is a symptom.     Your Dermatologist could write a script for Dapsone, provided you're not allergic to Sulphur.     Expect blood labs to go with using Dapsone.      You need to study everything that goes in your mouth for possible gluten content, including all meds.
    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      Hello,  I am currently 20 months, 1 day gluten-free. I stopped consuming dairy a few weeks after going gluten-free when I realized I was having lingering symptoms. Since going gluten-free dairy-free each day has been a day closer to feeling like my old self. As a child never had any issues with gluten or dairy. It wasn't until a year before my blood test/endoscopy that I began getting sick or noticing any issues. Diaherria, nausea, abdominal pain like I ate a sparkler, shaking and trembling. My whole experience before going gluten free was a nightmare. That year I lived in fear of leaving my home because I would be so sick and restroom hopping and uncomfortable at work. As of now, I m doing much better. I can tolerate things I couldn't following my diagnosis... Orange juice, coffee, salsa... And have gained 10 pounds back. I do miss cheese dearly but am afraid to try and see if I can tolerate dairy again. Is there anyone who can give any advice about reintroducing dairy? When is the best time to try? Should I wait I until I hit my 2 year mark? Any advice, successful or unsuccessful stories would be much appreciated so I can decide what the next step is for me... Or if I will even make a step. That ks in advance. ~Nora.
    • Itchy skin
      Not only do I have dry skin, but I deal with DH and horrible itchy skin for a few weeks after accidental gluten.  Im still not doing so well with the hidden gluten and forget that I have celiac sometimes.  I'm not out there eating a loaf of bread, but i may take a mint when I leave restaurant and eat it before I realize. oh, crap, I probably shouldn't have had that.  Im still navigating "gluten free" menus.  I was on the road for work, and thought Cosi was a good bet.  They had some gluten free dishes.  But, I was super sick within an hour, and started thinking. how do they really deal with cross contamination with all of that bread?   In any event.  the itchy skin is enough to cause me to jump out of my skin.   Any good solutions out there?  im actually not dealing with DH and haven't had any since just before my diganosis.  This time its just itchy skin.  All over.
