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 goes 100% weeks before a Grand Slam and also he probably had gluten before he lost to Federer back in France

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.

    • Gaerty, I am glad to hear that you've ruled out the worst stuff. That at least helps clear any anxiety or worry you might have. I know that would clear up mine. I have good news! About three days ago my splinter hemorrhages cleared up 100%! The one that was on my right thumb was long and was there for about 2 to 3 months. I started taking this Vitamin C supplement 1000 mg once a day about 3 weeks ago. Whats crazy is that on the day I started the Vitamin C I noticed a small hemorrhage cropping up on my left thumb. It was very small. By day 7 of taking the vitamin C the one on the left thumb started growing out. By the second week I noticed the one on the right thumb shrunk drastically and by the end of week 3 they were all gone. By day 10 I also started taking 25mg of iron because all my muscles keep twitching. My B's and Magnesium came back good 5 months ago. I heard low iron can cause that symptom as well. So thought I'd give it a try.  I am not sure if it was a combo of the C and Iron or just the C that helped clear the splinter hemorrhages but for sure it was one of those things because they are the only things I have changed recently with supplements in the past 30 days.  
    • The nasal spray is safe, per the 2017 gluten-free drug list, but check the list as there are a few different manufacturers.   http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/newlist.htm Claritin is fine.   Get a Nedi pot.  Helps tremendously.  It is safe.....100% gluten free.  Just use pre-boiled and the cooled water.  
    • Thanks Ravenswood. I need the strength and encouragement to keep going. The last sessions fall out was 4 days of my body revolting on a nervous system level.  I'll look into your acupressure book suggestion. I have done sinus acupressure for myself and my daughter for years but did not explore more.  In the past when gluten-free my fibromyalgia symptoms improved but since they come back the concern is it might be actual fibromyalgia.  After 2016 I found out I have Barrett s esophagus, fibromyalgia, additional food intolerance plus the gluten. I had in my head I was ncgs and it was all related to  that and leaky gut that occurred after my challenge., So I wasn't prepared to digest all the above. Pun intended. Thanks for the encouragement Awol
    • So I'll try to keep this short and sweet.  I'm a 25yo male and have had GI issues for about 7 years. Through many years and many doctors visits, I've gotten potential diagnoses of IBS, post-infectious IBS (d/t a Giardia infection in 2014), small intestine bacterial overgrowth, GERD, and even a strong suspicion of inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's/Ulcerative Colitis). I've had two colonoscopies (no biopsies taken) and one EGD (biopsies only taken of STOMACH which showed chronic gastritis, not small intestine). Pretty much all of my tests have come back "normal."  I'll start by saying that back in 2014ish my blood results for Celiac were negative. My GI symptoms vary and fluctuate greatly... When I'm really struggling, I'll have chronic diarrhea, debilitating reflux, hours of burping after eating anything, epigastric and lower right quadrant abdominal pain, severe fatigue (nearly passing out), migraines, awful brain fog / depression, unilateral eye pain and photophobia, mouth ulcers, glossitis (tongue inflammation), and occasional bloody mucus in my stool if I'm extremely flared.   So my GP recommended I try a gluten-free diet after my IBD panel came back as negative. I reluctantly gave it a shot. I was gluten-free for about 2 months - slowly but surely, my chronic diarrhea relented, fatigue lifted, and my reflux nearly disappeared (to the point of considering stopping my omeprazole). Since eating gluten-free is so difficult, I decided to try a 3-day gluten challenge to see if gluten truly was the culprit. I ate gluten products 2-3 times/day for 3 days. It made my reflux a bit worse and gave me some pain, but nothing severe. My tongue however started progressively burning/stinging that week.  The BAD symptoms came about 2 weeks after my first gluten exposure... My acid reflux became MUCH MUCH worse, despite medication. I lost about 7 pounds over 3 weeks from not wanting to eat. I had much more abdominal pain. My tongue became very inflamed and sensitive to eating/drinking. I got mouth ulcers. I became very depressed, irritable, and brain-fogged out of NOWHERE. I was nauseous and having headaches. It was NOT fun. That's when I thought, "Ok, I am definitely more sensitive to gluten than I thought." That was about 6 weeks ago and my stomach is still feeling the effects of those 3 days. So, my questions: Has anyone experienced a similar story? Has anyone had lower GI bleeding with celiac? For those who have Celiac, are your symptoms typically delayed like that (2-3 weeks)? I know NCGS is supposed to have much more immediate symptom-onset. Has anyone tested negative to blood work, but positive on small intestine biopsies?   
    • Thank you RMJ. It is helpful to hear kind/ encouraging words. From my symptoms I likely have had (undiagnosed) fibromyalgia for over 20 years, my celiac (misdiagnosed as IBS I likely had longer)  Additionally, in 2016 I was diagnosed with Barrett s esophagus and multiple food intolerance s as well as gluten being an issue. Thanks for the link for the info, although for this stage of my life I'm hoping to manage it non pharmaceutical, but it is good to get the details.  Thanks again Awol
