At What Height Does A 16yo Girl Have To Be To Considered A Midget
I'm a 16 year old girl 5'6 height and want to grow 2 inches more to 5'8 is this possible and if so ?? How do I do it ?? Thank u 4 the help
Yes and no: Most girls stop their height growth about 2 years after their 1st period at about 16 yrs of age. The most definitive test is the bone age (an x-Ray of your hand and wrist) will tell whether you have any growth potential left in your skeleton. Then again read "The Serenity Prayer" by Reinhold Niehbur. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am a 16 year old girl who is 155 CM tall. I am really worried about my height. will i be able to grow tall?
Hard to say: The growth centers for girls will usually start closing by 16 and when closed, no further increase in length is possible. This equates to about 2.5 inches after your first period. If your growth centers remain open (x-ray of wrist/hand), you might grow taller. ...Read more
For a 16 year old american girl standing at a height of 5 feet 7 inches/170.18 cm, is 114 pounds an okay weight?

If you are healthy and active and follow a balanced diet this is fine. Your predicted weight would increase into the 120 range within the next 2 years to stay in the same pattern.Failure to gain weight would likely place you in an under weight category. ...Read more
Hey,I'm a 16 year old girl with height 5'9.5 . Will stationery cycling or aerobics/gymming increase my height further?
I'm a 16 year old girl, height: 162cm, weight: 42 kg, if i eat 2600+ calories a day, how much weight would i gain?
1 kg: Your BMR (basal metabolic rate) calculates to about 1300 cal/day. If you did no exercise and ate 2500 cal/day you would gain 1200 cal/day, times 7 is 8400 cal. This is equivalent to just over 1 kg of weight or 2.4 lbs. Since you are significantly underweight currently, you need to eat more (and exercise) until your bmi is above 18. ...Read more
