Balanced nutrition: If the growth centers have some potential for growth, simple measures help the best.Keep active & a healthy diet but don't expect more growth than the genetic potential. Poor diet, chronic illness and self destructive habits can stunt growth.If you want to know how much growth potential is left, an x-ray of the wrist & hand can be analysed for bone maturity & the doc can give you an estimate.
