Growth Problem caused by allergies?

Patient : Dear Doctors, Hello my name is Zach and I have a few questions for you. I am 19 years old, I weigh 120lbs and I am 5'6". I have many food allergies, Gluten, Wheat, Milk, Peanuts, Eggs, and so on to name a few. And my Doctor told me not to even take protein because it has ingredients I am allergic to. My family are all taller than 5'10" and even 6'. My question is, may I qualify for a doctor to prescribe me Human growth Hormone? I am going to school to be a Police Officer and my problem is I am very small, and to most employers probably too small. I figured I would have grown to my families size by now but that is not the case. Could my food allergies be causing me to not grow to my potential ? I have been an avid weightlifter for about 4 years now and no gains or anything. Would I qualify to a doctors standards, to be prescribed Human Growth Hormone? Thanks, Zach.
