Height Increase For Adults
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
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.

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.
