Have you had your vitamin levels checked recently? There is a chance that your duodenum has not healed if you were only "relatively gluten free". It can take weeks to heal after being exposed to gluten so even if you only eat crumbs of gluten a couple of times a month, your intestines may be unable to absorb the nutrients required for further growth. I am glad to hear you are gluten-free now, I hope you are able to continue it!
I had undiagnosed celiac as a child and stopped growing at age 12. Although i am almost 5'8", I really wish I had known to go gluten-free...my dad was a huge pro football player and I now wonder if I could have grown taller.

As I've stated elsewhere, when I went gluten-free my fingernails and hair started growing at a very fast pace.

My fingernails have been growing faster since quitting gluten too. It's amazing how often they need to be clipped now. They barely used to grow at all. The white splotches have almost completely disappeared too.
