If you don't mind, how old are you? Under 21? Just curious to see if any (young) adults who have been malnourished for a long time see a slight growth spurt after going gluten-free.

Ok. Now remember to duck under that light fixture.

:lol:

Funny thing is: the rest of my family is tall – Dad is 6'4", Mom is 5'9", brother is 6'0-6'1" and my uncle (the resident giant) is 6'7"...it goes on... but, I have witnessed them all bump their heads numerous times on this stupid chandelier! Guess I've been initiated into the club...

:lol: That's great! you're definitely doing it right.

Makes me wonder if I'd known about cc as a kid, if I would have actually grown past age 12. LOL

I won't share this with my daughter! At 5'8" she had two questions about going gluten-free, will I gain weight and will I grow taller? Being a ballet dancers she doesn't want to get any taller. Finding a male to partner with is hard enough at 5'8"! :P

:lol:

The uncle that is 6'7" originally wanted to become a pilot in the navy – he couldn't fit in the cockpit! - couldn't make it through the door! :lol:

I was a gymnast so the shorter stature worked to my advantage there, but we always wondered why I was so much shorter. Now that I think about it, I stopped growing right around the time that I began having more noticeable health/GI "issues."

Who knew?!

I can relate to your daughter! On the other hand, taller dancers always have beautiful lines. :)

Yes! Like I said, I did *not* expect to grow after going gluten-free. In fact, I never would have thought of myself as being "malnourished." It just goes to show you that a) it is a spectrum (malnourishment) and b ) people have an uncanny ability to adjust to various "normals" even though what they might be experiencing may not in fact be normal!

I GREW 1/2 an inch in 5 months after having been stagnant for years! According to the doctors I was done growing awhile ago... hehehe!

I'm pretty excited about this growing thing (and needed to share)! :D

Wow that's really somethin!

Glad you shared that.

soooo, how tall were you when you stopped, and how much have now gained? The expectation with those parents would have been ~ 5'10" or so...but is the "giant uncle"

your fathers brother, if so, maybe your father was intended to be taller?

I was around 5'4" 1/2 when I stopped at 15. I am now 5'6" (6 months gluten-free). The giant uncle is my father's brother.... but my mother's mother was 6' also. I'm not sure about my father, but I think my brother should have been taller (he is barely 6'). I am slowly convincing him to go gluten-free
