Can Human Height Decrease
Yes: As we age, there are changes that can occur to the skeleton, particularly the spine, which can lead to height loss. Disc degeneration with arthritis can lead to loss of vertebral disc heights. Osteoporotic spinal fractures can lead to vertebral bone heights. Spinal deformities, which can be related to the previously mentioned pathologies, can also lead to height loss. ...Read more
Sleep well to grow: Growth hormone is released during sleep-so if you can get good quality sleep, that will help your body regulate it's own hormones. We call sleeping well-'sleep hygiene'. Also, before the invention of the electric light, diaries indicated we slept TEN hours a night on average, not just 8. Try keeping a sleep log to see if you're getting good enough sleep (running a sleep deficits means you are not) ...Read more
Generally no: Growth hormone given to someone with genetic short stature can get them to their final height a little sooner, if their growth centers are still open. However, it will not add inches after the growth centers are closed, and is unlikely to add inches beyond what final height would be without it. If hormonally deficient it can add height. ...Read more
No reason to: There is an immense amount of nonsense on the internet about human growth hormone. There are some bona fide reasons to use it, such as any premie with IUGR may benefit for catch-up growth and to attain a normal adult height. If a full grown man takes it, it may cause acromegaly (think of the James Bond "Jaws") because bones can't grow longer, just wider. An endocrinologist can evaluate if ok. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Your 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
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

Can a child with normal levels of hormones use letrozole to delay growth plates closure and sermorelin to increase height?
Not indicated: In case of normal growth parameters in a child ( like normal growth hormone and igf1 levels and normal bone age) there is not much significance of sermorelin or human growth hormone therapy. Letrozole is not indicated and is still in its primary experimental stages for use for this indication. All one needs in this scenario are regular growth velocity checks at your doctor's office. ...Read more
