Hi my age is 19 and my height is 5.8 feet i wanted to know what is the procedure to grow height naturally?
One of friend(female) is short in height. Strict 5 feet, age 17+. Is there any possibility to grow longer? If possbile, what's the procedure?
Tough call: You need to know if she is much shorter than her mother and any sisters. If she is she needs to see a pediatric endocrinologist who will determine if she can still grow taller and if she has growth hormone deficiency. This may be correctable but she should not wait too long to be seen. ...Read more

I am a boy and I am 20 years old . My father height 6"1.5".My mother is 5'3".But I am 5'8"at the age of 20.I want to grow 6 feet. Boys grow till 25?
Very unlikely!: You can ask your Dad when he stopped growing but most boys stop growing by the age of 18. The most definitive test is called the "bone age" wherein they X-ray your wrist, hand, and fingers at once and compare it to an atlas of "standards". Your bones lengthen at the ends, not the middle. It will tell you how much potential growth you have left in your skeleton. Also read "Serenity Prayer". ...Read more
I am a boy and I am 20 years old.My father height 6"1.5".My mother is 5'3".But I am 5'8"at the age of 20.I want to grow 6 feet. When I was?
Incomplete question: As written, your statement does not ask a clear question. Your expected final height based on your parents would be 5'10.75 +/- 1 inch. At the age of 20, your growth centers are likely closed and you are as tall as you will ever be. A single x-ray of your wrist/hand could verify any growth potential. ...Read more
