How tall is too tall: No, there is no way or exercise for you to decrease your height. I would suggest that you see your physician if you are truly VERY tall just to ensure that there are no glandular issues. Likely, you are not too tall for your age - that you are exactly as tall as you are supposed to be (even if that is taller than average) and learning to love YOU is the best treatment.
