"Average" depends: "Average" varies from one region to another, and on average, American children may be a bit bigger than some countries. I have attached a growth chart depicting "average" or 50th percentile for a 17 year old girl as about 55kg. I see you live in India, and I do not have a growth chart specifically for you. But you may use this chart as a reference if it's helpful. See your doc if you're concerned! ...Read more

Sir, what is the last age of height increasing? Can height increase after 21 in males. Can any HGH supplements work on height after 21?
21-22, very rare, no: Most men stop growing between ages 18-20 though there are rare cases of growing at 21 and very rarely at 22. But the odds of growing after 21 are quite small, as usually the growth plates of the bones have closed. Once the growth plates have closed then HGH can not help to increase height. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b73LhEoLzoQ for rare cases of late growth spurts. ...Read more
Genetics...: There is no magic wand or secret to getting taller than you are genetically "made" to do. At 17 as a male, you may actually still have a little bit of height growth but not usually a whole lot. My best advice is learn to love yourself as you are... with confidence you can walk into a room and SEEM ten feet tall :) ...Read more
Possible: The expected height of kids would be average parental height + 2.5 inch for boys and -2.5in for girls. If either or both parents have genetic material on board from their families that should have made them taller, there is some chance that a taller child could be produced. Often the eventual stature of kids can be predicted in mid childhood using their bone maturity and pattern of growth. ...Read more
Most are done at 18: Height continues until the growth centers of the long bones close under the influence of hormones. This is at 17-18 for most males.A few will continue until older but at a very slow pace.An xray of the hand and wrist can identify growth centers that may show more time for growth. ...Read more

In africa, if you are a watusi, you will be taller than someone from the congo. There is no answer, because of the variables. ...Read more
What other than a pituitary tumor could cause a noticeable height increase in adults? I noticed a growth spurt around age 38 & then another at 41.
Doesn't actually...: Height growth due to increased growth hormone does not happen in adults because their growth plates in their long bones have fused. That means any perceived increase in height would not be related to any presumed or actual pituitary tumor in an adult over age 25 or so. ...Read more
Was told that very limited conditions can lead to height increase in adults. Can someone please explain what they are? Feel like growing in late 30s.
No such thing: Once the growth plates are closed there is no further growth in length of bones. I think you are or have been misled by some myths. ...Read more

Any truth that rubbing of legs, sending tingles & chills thru body, causes excess growth hormone & height to increase? I'm an adult way past puberty.
No truth : There are a lot of people who want to be taller who would wish you could rub your legs and make it happen... Sorry but there is no truth to that statement. As an adult the growth plates are fused and you will not be getting taller. ...Read more
Can taking any of the following lengthen bones and increase the height of an adult female: zinc, calcium magnesium, vitamin d, vitamin k, vitamin b?
No: Hi. At 30 years old, you're long done gaining height. Nothing you can do to add height after your long bone growth plates fuse in your teens. If you have a healthy diet, of the vitamins and mineral you list, the only ones you're at risk for not getting enough of are calcium and vitamin D, so assure you're getting enough of them.

Exercise, eat, sleep: 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. In rare cases, growth hormone is approved for use in younger, extremely short kids. ...Read more
I am 18 and 5'10" and i am taking calcium for height increase.Is it helpful?Please i need some advice . My friends in same age are 6'1"and higher.
Won't help: 5'10 is a fine height for a guy. A little taller than average. At age 18, you're almost certainly reached your maximum. Shorter men are more agile, and it's a plus for several sports, famously gymnastics and climbing. A man seeking a friend is likely to choose a shorter guy, and you can be wiser and funnier without being disliked. Your fitness / musculature overrides height & you control it. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
