Maybe. Maybe not.: 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. Aside from eating right, exercising, sleeping well, and being happy, there's not much a person nor his doctor can do to increase height. One can ask the pediatrician about height, at a check-up or an extra office visit. ...Read more

Likely finished: You are close to your expected height based on your parents. (M+D/2 + 2.5in) If you entered puberty around the same time as your friends, your growth centers willclosed at age 17-18, after which you cannot get taller. A single x-ray of your wrist/hand could identify open growth centers which would mean you could grow more. Good nutrition/sleep and exercise support the best growth. ...Read more

Hi my son is 14. 9 years his height is 5'4" tall. Bone test mentions iliac crest is partuially united with ts counterpart. Will his height increase?

Probably: The average 15 yo at 5'4" would be expected to grow another 2 inches. A better assessment for growth potential is in the wrist and hand where dozens of growth centers are available for review. ...Read more

I m 19 year old boy and my height is 5.5 foot. Will my height increase and what can I do to increase my height?

Accept your size: At 19 your growth centers are most likely closed & no further growth is likely. If growth centers are open (xray of hand can tell) you might grow more but at 19 this is unlikely. There is no magic exercise or diet to grow taller. Taller kids have taller parents. ...Read more

My son is 4 years but he is short, what should I do to increase his height?

See your Dr.: First he needs a complete history and physical exam as well as his growth chart plotted. That will give the doctor more information about what is going on with your child and if more tests would be warranted. Short of growth hormone, there is nothing magical you can do to increase your child's height. ...Read more

Hey I am 21 years old. My height is 5'11 and weight is 55kgs! Please suggest me how to increase weight!

Good for you: And welcome to the joys & responsibilities of being a man. You want muscle but do not want more fat! In the usa, most woman like a trim, tallish (that's you) man with a relatively light frame (that's you). Make friends with a bunch of gym guys and do resistance training as part of who you are; and ignore anything folks tell you about adding food. Staying trim's important. Good luck. ...Read more

Sir, my age is 20 years and my height is 5'6" inches I want to increase my height what I do please help me?

No solution: Unfortunately at your age you will not grow any more. This is due to the growth plates in your bones being closed now. No further growth will occur. My recommendation is to be satisfied with your height. It does not define who you are as a person. ...Read more

Hi. Am 22 years old. And my height is 4'11. I want to increase my height. Is it possible? And if yes then hiw?

Adult height: Unless you had a very delayed puberty, you will not grow any more. With puberty, you get a growth spurt, but then the growth plates in the bone fuse, and you stop growing. Hormones (eg. Hgh) will not help. ...Read more

Hard to say: Growth centers in long bones determine how tall you can grow. Most growth centers will close at 16-19 years in males. After that happens, you are done. If your growth centers are open, a balanced diet/rest ; healthy physical activity will support good growth. Their are no special diet or exercises that make you taller. Gh injections would only get you to your genetic height faster, not add extra. ...Read more

Hi. I am 17 years old and my height is 5'5" plz suggest me, how I can increase my height?

Unlikely to happen: At 17 your 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 and if the growth centers remain open to new growth. A bone maturity more consistent with 14 would leave some room for growth. Most girls get 2.5 in or 5 cm after their first menses and stop. ...Read more

I am 17 years & 8 months old, my height is 5'1.Please tell me way to increase height. I will be gratefull to you.

May be too late but: I am sorry to tell you that most men stop growing around age 18- but occasionally some will grow until age 21 or so. Taking measures to increase your production of growth hormone might help, but if your growth plates have closed (like most 17 2/3 yo's)then you've reached your max.

I want increase my height at 18 years age?

No more growth: You need to come to terms with the fact that you are not going to grow anymore. At 18, if you get maybe another 1/2 inch of growth, i'd be surprised. Your height is genetically determined, and your bones fuse in males by age18, meaning no further growth is going to happen. There is no medication, hormone or other internet snake oil going to give you any more inches. Time to accept this is you! ...Read more
