Growing Taller After Gluten Free Dietheight growing diet

I have been dx celiac last year and have been on a strict gluten free diet ever since and was wondering if anyone has started growing in height ? I am 22 and grew a 1/2 inch in the past 6 months . I have severe growing pains in my legs , anyone else have had this happen ?

I remember one poster, about 6 months ago, who was also a young adult who grew an inch or so after going gluten-free. A growth spurt is common in kids if their growth was being held off but it does happen with some adults too.
Hope your legs feel better soon.

I went gluten free at age 20, and gained a shoe size. Go figure?

I've been wondering about this too. I haven't had my height measured lately, but I've had what feels like growing pains and a couple people have said I look taller. Although, I've also had a change in bodyfat distribution, which has altered my posture, so that could be all it is. I'm also 22 years old.

Many of my friends put a growth spurt in their early twenties after being static for some years before that. I noticed this because when we all split apart after school at age 19 I was taller than most of them. Caught up with them about 10 years later and many of the short ones had grown about 6 inches! It happens sometimes.
