How can I get my height increase?

Exercise, eat, sleep: 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

I passed 18 three months later and i am 5'3 will my height increase more?

Perhaps: It is difficult to say if your height will increase. Usually late in adolescence (16-18) development is usually nearing completion. Perhaps you might grow a few inches in the next couple of years. But no one can tell. You could look at your parents and make a rough estimation of your final height by calculating the midparental height (inches) = (father height + (mother Height +5))/2. ...Read more

Some height increasing products like step up & dr surged claim height increase with guarantee.Are these products genuine.Do they have any side effects?

Scams: You're smart to see through it. Herbs to make an adult grow six inches? Get real. These companies might refund your money when it fails, but most suckers will be too embarrassed. You're a young man, and while being tall is fun, the real key to looking good is to gym and get lean and muscular; this trumps height and is good for you. Focus on what you can be. ...Read more

I wanna take homeopathic medication for height increase so is homeopathy medicine effective?

I wanna take homeopathic medication for height increase so is homeopathy medicine effective?

Not for height: Homeopathy can help whatever the body can do. If your growth plates are still open, you may still grow -- once closed, there is no further increase in height because that is your body's natural process. At 17, your growth plates may already be closed -- thus, homeopathy would not help you grow beyond this. ...Read more

Can my height increase with the help of exercises or by any aurvedic medication which doesn't have any side effects?

Can my height increase with the help of exercises or by any aurvedic medication which doesn't have any side effects?

May be too late but: I am sorry to tell you that most men stop growing around age 18- but occasionally some will grow until age 21 or so. Taking measures to increase your production of growth hormone might help, but if your growth plates have closed (like most 18 yo's) then you've reached your max.

Can IGF-1 be as effective as rhIGF-1 for height increase in children? And how is IGF-1 lr3 different from the two above?

Growth: IGF1 is the effector protein of growth hormone. rhIGF1 just means it is synthetic. IGR IR3 is an analog, which should work the same way. The most important question is why is this being given, and has the proper work-up been done. Is there GH or IGF1 deficiency? If not, is this just being done to (maybe) add 2 cm in height? See a Pediatric Endocrinologist. ...Read more

Hi, good evening. Recently we had buy Yoko Height Increaser, is their any side effect will come to utilize this, or tell me some suggestion to height increase. ?

They don't work: Height is determined by a number of factors- none of which are affected by devices, nutritional supplements, exercises "designed" to stretch you, etc. Your genetics & normally functioning hormonal systems are all you need (oh, and a normal skeleton) to grow as tall as you will be programmed to grow. Read the complaints of the device you bought, blisters, pain, and no results & EXPENSIVE! ...Read more

Sir, what is the last age of height increasing? Can height increase after 21 in males. Can any HGH supplements work on height after 21?

21-22, very rare, no: Most men stop growing between ages 18-20 though there are rare cases of growing at 21 and very rarely at 22. But the odds of growing after 21 are quite small, as usually the growth plates of the bones have closed. Once the growth plates have closed then HGH can not help to increase height. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b73LhEoLzoQ for rare cases of late growth spurts. ...Read more
