Hi, I would like to ask you, is there any chance to grow taller if the plates are closed? Or anything to do to grow taller? Thank you
No: When the growth plates have fused you cannot grow taller. ...Read more
Maybe: The answer depends on whether your growth plates are open or not. How far along one is in puberty can often help one estimate this, but ultimately your doctor should be able to give you an accurate sense of this, usually by taking an Xray of your hand to look at the growth plates. Girls are almost always done growing by 16, and boys usually pretty close to done....but there are always exceptions ...Read more

I'm 20 is there any chances to grow taller maximum 4 inches im 5.7 My dad is 5.10 my mom is short plzz help me how can I improve my height?
You R likely done: Most males stop growing taller at 17 & expected height is their parental average plus 2.5 inches. The best aid for growth is an active lifestyle, proper rest & a healthy diet. Don't expect anyone to grow taller than their genetic potential. If you want to know if you can grow more, an x-ray of the wrist/ hand can be analysed for bone maturity. If the growth centers are closed you are done ...Read more
Male between 5ft 6 and 5ft 7. Dad is 5ft 7 and mum is 5ft 2, so is there any chance I will grow taller than my dad?
Maybe, likely if...: Height is mostly genetically determined, if a child has normal nutrition. A child is likely to grow taller than his or her 5' 3" dad if dad's or mom's relatives are several inches taller than dad, if mom is taller than dad, if dad ended up short due to chronic illness such as cystic fibrosis or due to malnutrition such as being a wartime refugee, or if the child's own siblings are taller than dad. ...Read more

I am 2o years old and I am 5 foot 4 inches. I want to grow more taller. Is there any chances for me to grow taller. What should I eat and what excerci?
I'm male 18 years old and im 67.3 inches tall. I want to know is there a chance that I might still grow taller?
Yes: It is possible that you will continue to grow, although many men do reach their full adult height by age 18. A good 'estimate' of your final predicted adult height is the average of your dad's height in inches and your mom's height in inches + 5 inches. For example, if dad's height is 70 inches and mom's height is 65 inches, then 70 + (65+5)/2 is 70 inches. ...Read more
What are the chances a close to 40 YO female will grow taller by several inches? Shouldn't the growth plates have closed a long time ago by this time?
So confused-some docs saiy a person can't grow taller @ 38, others say small chance can occur. What conditions would cause that small chance to happen
Get seen in person.: The only way you will ever resolve this, is to get a physical and take in copies of your old records. If necessary, a specialist can be consulted. As you know, in some people (a very few), there can be disorders of iron metabolism, that can cause this. It is an exceedingly rare phenomenon, and some might not be aware of the few cases, or maybe those past case reports have been discredited since ...Read more
Is there any way I could grow taller like sleep, or take vitamins? I wanna be 6'0 but I'm 5'2? Is there any chance?
No, I wish there was: Height is pretty much decided by the genes you inherit from your parents. Some males grow until their late teens, but if your body looks physically mature with adult genitals and facial and body hair, you will not grow much taller. Sleep and a healthy diet are good for everyone, but will not add the height you would like. I'm sorry. ...Read more
Unlikely to happen: Some kids continue to grow taller into their late teens or rarely early twenties but only when their bone maturity lags behind their age. If the growth centers of the long bones have fused, you cannot grow taller. A single x-ray of the wrist ; hand can yield a bone maturity. Most boys stop at 17. When you have reached bony maturity, you are done. ...Read more
Unlikely to happen: At 18 the growth centers have likely closed so no more linear growth is expected. If you want to know for sure an x-ray of the wrist ; hand can be analysed for bone maturity ; tell if the growth centers remain open to new growth. A bone maturity more consistent with 14 would leave some room for growth. ...Read more
Unlikely to happen: The growth centers of your bones determine how tall you can grow. Most growth centers will close at 16-19 years of age in males. After that happens, you can not grow taller. If your growth centers were open, a balanced diet/rest ; healthy physical activity would support good growth. Their are no special diet or exercises that make you taller. ...Read more

While young, you may grow a little in your sleep but this is due to the normal increase your body is making and is not a response to being asleep. So get your sleep and consider your heredity and nutrition for optimizing your growth potential. ...Read more
Depends: Linear growth depends on growth centers in the long bones. Puberty accelerates and then ends growth by closing the growth plates. If you entered puberty at the average time you usually finish growth by 17-18.If late, and bone centers (xray of hand) are more consistent with a 15 yo you might grow in your 20's.If the growth centers are closed, you are done. If you have not grown in a year, U are. ...Read more
