iam 25 what i do increase height?

Dr. Clarene Cress
Specializes in Pediatrics
Not possible: If your height has been the same for the past 2 years, which usually happens at the end of puberty and usually well before age 20, the growth plates in your bones have fused and it is not possible to gain height anymore. Having short stature in a culture that thinks big is better can be hard, but find ways of focusing on your other assets and your personality. Depressed? Please see counselor.
