at 19 years old when might i hit puberty and grow taller?

Consultation time: If you are really 19 and have had no signs of puberty it is time for a thorough evaluation. I'll assume you have had little contact with doctors or this would have been started already. A pediatric endocrinologist would be where i would send you after initial lab and x-rays.
