Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Dear sir,
With all due respects to the "humble banana" and your friend ,eating bananas is no way going to cure your knee pain. But on the other hand you being a diabetic and its glycemic index being high its definitely going to rise your blood sugars. I would request you to meet your diabetologist and clear the doubts regarding this. As for the knee pain by the history that you have given it seems like a more strain related issue. Considering the fact that you haven't had a fall while playing tennis simple ice compressions, rest and analgesics should be enough . I suggest discontinuing your tennis for 10 days.
