Accept your height: If you went through puberty and have the features of an adult male, you likely stopped growing at 17-19 like most males.An x-ray of your wrist.hand could show potential for more growth, but that would be matched by relative immaturity of other features. If your growth centers ore still open, a balanced diet, proper rest and exercise support maximum height. ...Read more

Would HGH be effective at a bone age of 16?

No: Longitudinal growth is done in girls by bone age of 16 and nearly done in boys with the same bone age. Hgh would not be used for the purpose of growth in a child with a bone age of 16. In patients with persistent gh deficiency who are done growing, we will consider reinitiating hgh at adult doses for the metabolic benefits. ...Read more

My bone age is 12 years and my actual age is 20 years can I increase height at 20 age ? If yes then tell me the proper name of medicine .

Yes: If your BA is 12 , it suggests you have several years during which you can grow under the right treatment.It is also suggestive of hormonal deficiencies,that would include growth hormone and possibly others. Your profile lists many initial tests but more will be needed. An endocrinologist should be consulted to help with testing and treatment. ...Read more

I was wondering are bone age xrays reliable?

I was wondering are bone age xrays reliable?

Standards exist: This study relies on side by side comparisons of each study to published standards.There are some natural variations in the growth center closure sequence which creates a margin of error for every study (months).In general, the study is not only reliable, it is the go to study to decide whether other growth evaluations should be started. ...Read more

It's possible to delay an advanced bone age (16) increasing final height?

It's possible to delay an advanced bone age (16) increasing final height?

Can't turn back: With a bone age of 16, there is less than 5 cm left of growth potential. Adding experimental treatment in the form of aromatase inhibition may delay the progress, but limited studies have not published data when bone age is so advanced. No real knowledge about long term side effects although there are concerns about how treatment might affect fertility and vertebral bone. ...Read more

Though my daughter is 14 years she has the bone age of a 12 year old .How many more inches can she grow?

Though my daughter is 14 years she has the bone age of a 12 year old .How many more inches can she grow?

Hard to know: Bone age can be lower than regular age for many reasons. One important aspect is how your daughter is progressing through puberty- I assume since you know the bone age that your doctor has been looking into puberty or height issues.. Adult height is based on taking both Mom and Dad's height and doing a calculation that I have provided- I would ask your doctor about your concerns ...Read more

If my son is age 12 but has a bone age of one year behind (taken about 5 years ago) would I use age 11 in one of the height calculators?

If my son is age 12 but has a bone age of one year behind (taken about 5 years ago) would I use age 11 in one of the height calculators?

Not necessarily: A bone age of 1 year behind from 5 years ago could very well have changed by now--could be that the bone age has caught up and now he is a bone age of 12, not 11. Or maybe his bone age is even ahead and he is 13, not 12. You should use his chronological age, 12. And if you are still worried about his height, go see an endocrinologist and have another bone age and workup done. ...Read more
