There are some professional athletes who have this..  and somehow they find the energy to compete so hard??  how???

Novak Djokovic...

"Like an estimated 600,000 Britons, the muscular 23-year-old Serbian has coeliac disease, which means he is intolerant to gluten found in many grains."

Tennis is one of the most demanding sports there is. Djokovic is currently the #1 player in the world...   yet he has celiac..  

There are also some professional football players who have it...

I was just recently diagnosed.........  I tried starting a new job a few days ago that was a bit more physically demanding.. and after the first day I couldn't do it anymore..  I just felt like crap... 

Is it that these Athletes have perfect diets or something??????????

They probably have healed.  

While healing from celiac disease, go easy.  It takes time to heal, master the diet, so take it easy.  Listen to your body.  It is trying to tell you that you need rest.  

Can you make a full recovery?  Yes!  

I am old, but I bet if I entered a sprint triathlon, I could make it on the podium for my age group!
