Hi' i'm 18 and 67 inches tall. my dad is 75 inches tall. can i grow taller than him??

Unlikely : By the age of 18 your growth plates are going to be closing pretty soon. This is the part of the bone that allows new bone to form and lengthen the bones. For most people this happens around 18-20. You are probably going to grow another two to three inches but you might not catch your dad! ...Read more

I'm 19 years old and I'm 168 cm tall. And I have dense hair growth inherited from my father. He is 173 cm tall. Will I grow in height any further?

I'm 19 years old and I'm 168 cm tall. And I have dense hair growth inherited from my father. He is 173 cm tall.  Will I grow in height any further?

Unlikely to happen: At 19 the growth centers in your bones 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 age 14 would leave some room for growth. ...Read more

I'm in 19 year.My height is 5"5.How can I grow my height.

I'm in 19 year.My height is 5"5.How can I  grow my height.

Growth unlikely: An 19 yr old is not growing taller if his growth plates have fused. If not fused, he will grow a little bit (pediatrician's growth chart for him can tell if growth has stopped). To look taller, one can choose properly designed clothing; shoes, and have good posture. Vitamins, supplements, "special" foods, exercise, etc... will not make a person living in the U.S. taller (height here is genetic). ...Read more

Till what age does wrist circumference increase? 20, wrist size 6.7 inches,height 173 cm, ankle 8.9 inches.

Varies somewhat: The mechanism by which the circumference of the wrist increases includes the growth of the bones that make up the wrist, the joint spaces in the wrist, and also the soft tissues of the wrist as well. Bone growth in males can vary quite a bit anywhere usually between 14 and 21. Muscle and tendon size vary with use. Even elderly patients can have increase in wrist circumference due to arthritis. ...Read more
