I'm very short and i found out I have celiac disease. Can following a gluten free diet increase my height growth?

Reg Excercize & Food: At your age you still have some chances of growing and getting taller. I do not think a special diet will help increase height. A regular regimen of excersize and a good normal diet with some extra proteins will help you maintain good health and in my opinion that will maximize your growth potential. Not worrying too much about it will also help. Wishing you the best. ...Read more

You are likely done: If you entered puberty the same time as your friends and your bone maturity is that of a 19 yo there is little you can do to increase your height.A single x-ray of your left hand can be assessed for bone maturity.If 19, you are done growing, if bony maturity is more like 15 you might grow an additional couple of inches.There are no magic solutions if your growth centers r closed. ...Read more

I'm 5'5" and i'm 16 years old. I don't want any medicine. Is there any way to increase height by doing sports or by some diet?

No: Only while the growth plates are still open, does height increase. This will be regardless of additional supplements, though healthy diet is important. Most 16 year-old boys are nearly done growing. A bone age x-ray of the left hand can determine how much growth is left. ...Read more

Iam 25 what I do increase height?

Not possible: If your height has been the same for the past 2 years, which usually happens at the end of puberty and usually well before age 20, the growth plates in your bones have fused and it is not possible to gain height anymore. Having short stature in a culture that thinks big is better can be hard, but find ways of focusing on your other assets and your personality. Depressed? Please see counselor. ...Read more

Height is done by 22: 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.
