At what age do you reach your permanent height?

At what age do you reach your permanent height?

Depends: Final height is reached when the growth centers of your bones close and further linear growth cannot occur. This varies in most men from 16-20 and women from 15-17. A single x-ray of the wrist/hand can be assessed for open growth centers. When open, more growth is possible, if closed it is finished. ...Read more

At what age do you reach full height?

Height: If you've completed puberty you aren't likely to grow taller. Girls complete puberty by ages 15 to 17 & for boys it is by ages 16 to 17. However, if one enters puberty late, they will usually also complete it late. Our height is largely determined by genetics (our parents' height). If you are healthy (no unusual causes for stunted growth/ smaller stature) then there is not a way to become taller ...Read more

What age will I reach my maximum height?

Teen years: Everyone can be a little different. There are certainly incidences where individuals grow significantly after 18, but usually that age is the end. Girls get near their final height at about 15 and boys at about 16. You gain a little after that, but not much - usually. Your bony growth plates will fuse at around 18 and height growth will stop. ...Read more

What is the last or latest possible age that a female can grow taller and reach her final adult height?

When centers close: Linear growth depends on having open growth centers. An x-ray of the wrist/hand is a common site to look for these since so many are available to see. When these centers are closed on x-ray, those in the rest of the body are too. The hormones that signal the transition into puberty accelerate the closure of growth centers. Most stop 3 inches after their first menses.This is usually by 17-18. ...Read more

If a child was malnourished (lived off of processed foods, no proper nutrients, etc) up to age 12-13 could they still reach their potential height?

Malnourished?: "Malnourished" means not enough calories or not enough protein. It has long term consequences, affecting growth and sometimes development. Processed foods, although not ideal, on the other hand, are not necessarily deficient in these nutrients so it's not right to assume the child was malnourished. ...Read more

There is no medication, hormone or other internet snake oil going to give you any more inches. Time to accept this is you! ...Read more
