Will I keep Growing?

Patient : Hey, Im 17 years old and 5'9 and a half. But all my life doctors had told me i was gonna be about 5'11 - 6 foot. I guess they looked at my growth charts to tell that. And when I was little my parents measured me and they said there was a way to tell how tall i was gonna be and it said I was gonna be up in the 6 foot range. I went through puberty rather early, like around 12 or 13. I also was diagnosed with type one Diabetes at 12. Has my growth been stunted in some way? Do I need to seek medical help to grow, or do you think i'll keep growing? I mean its kinda a let down to be this height.
