Sudden growth spurt, falling sick. Is there a possible relation between the two conditions?

My son didn t really get sick from ages 3-12. Over the past year he has gotten sick quite a few times. Also, over the past year he has grown 6 inches and gained 40 lbs. He is very physically active and is approximately 5 4 and 125 lbs. Is there potentially a connection between his growth spurt and getting sick more frequently? Thank You.
