 Hello, I am 16 year old boy and i am wondering: How many feet will I be if I am am 5 feet 9  My Dad is 6 feet and my mom is 5 feet. Thanks?

You are on target: There is a formula we use to estimate your genetic height potential based on parental height: The average of your parents' height which is 5 ft 6 inches to which you add 2.5 inches if you are a boy and subtract 2.5 inches if you are a girl. Most people end up within 3 inches of this and you are already at that target height. You might grow a couple of more inches if you are not late in puberty ...Read more

I am 19 years old and 5 feet 6 inches in height and 60 kg weight.What should I do to increase my height? Plzz help me!

Hard to do at 19 yrs: Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic childhood illnesses, height is largely based on genetics and parental heights. Aside from eating right, exercising, sleeping well, and being happy, there's not much a person nor his doctor can do to increase height. In rare cases, growth hormone is approved for use in younger, extremely short kids. ...Read more

Weight: Sorry, I need to do this in pounds. With girls, we calculate weight by 100lbs for 5' and 5 lbs for every inch above that; so 130. However, 10% below and up to 20% above, is just cosmetic weight, not affecting your health. So 117-156lbs. 56-57kg is about 127lbs. Your weight is perfect for your height. Toning with exercise, might help you feel better about your shape. ...Read more

Possibly: If we project your final height based on where you are now on a regular growth chart, you should pick up another inch.If projected by genetics alone you could make it to 6'2".It all depends on growth centers.An x-ray of your wrist and hand could be analysed to see how much time you have to grow. ...Read more

Height: Hello Buddy, the short answer is not much. Young ladies grow until they hit puberty, but young men tend to grow until they are 18 or 19 years old so you may have another inch or two to go but probably not much more growing for you. ...Read more

Improving weight: First of all you need to know if you have any medical problem causing you not to gain weight. ie. celiac disease, diabetes, malabsorption. If you are sure you have none of these, check what food you are eating, if they are good sources of calories. If you are very active you might be loosing more calories than what you take in. You can supplement your calories with high calorie diet . ...Read more
