19years old, 5'6, 33in inseam, ~18inch spine, dad 5'11(same inseam as me), mom 5'2. What are the chances of me growing 3-5 inches?

19years old, 5'6, 33in inseam, ~18inch spine, dad 5'11(same inseam as me), mom 5'2. What are the chances of me growing 3-5 inches?

Almost nil: You are too old to grow more now. Your height is based on genetics and a lifetime of proper nutrition and exercise. Based on your mom and dad's height, you are right where you should be genetically. If you are lucky, you may grow less than an inch but no way at all you will grow 3-5 inches. That is impossible. ...Read more

Child's past medical/family/development history is not given but is important to know. Be aware that hearing loss is a major cause of language delay in this age group and must be tested for.

Parents are 5'5 and 5'4 1/2,  adult daughter is 5'2. 16 year old youngest daughter is 5'2 1/2. period at 15 like other daughter. how tall will she be?

Height: Most children have their height and weight measured several times in the first year or so and then at annual physical exams. That information should be documented on a height and weight program. Ask for a copy and then see how she fits with the family height. Very likely to be the same but one never knows without clear information. ...Read more
