Growing Taller After Gluten Free Diet

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm new here

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'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.
