Do I still have a chance to grow taller despite having an age of 25? What shall I do?

Do I still have a chance to grow taller despite having an age of 25? What shall I do?

No: Once puberty is complete and the bone growth plate closes, you will not grow any more. This is usually complete at about age 16-18. Assuming you had a normal puberty, hormone treatment now will not help and will only give you side effects. ...Read more

What do you suggest if I am 5' 1" and 16 yrs old. Do I have a chance to grow taller?

What do you suggest if I am 5' 1" and 16 yrs old. Do I have a chance to grow taller?

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

If my dad is 5 foot 3 inches, is there any chance I will grow taller than him?

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'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?

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

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?

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
