I'm a 16 year old girl 5'6 height and want to grow 2 inches more to 5'8 is this possible and if so ?? How do I do it ?? Thank u 4 the help

Yes and no: Most girls stop their height growth about 2 years after their 1st period at about 16 yrs of age. The most definitive test is the bone age (an x-Ray of your hand and wrist) will tell whether you have any growth potential left in your skeleton. Then again read "The Serenity Prayer" by Reinhold Niehbur. ...Read more

Not likely: Growth stops when the growing end of the bones fuses. After that time no linear growth is possible. At your age and the length of time without growing, it is likely youi have reached yoiur growth potential. ...Read more

My height is 5foot 7 inch and I am 20 year old is it good or I can grow further 2-3 inch ?

Unlikely . . .: Is your height good? That's up to you. As for whether you'll grow an additional 2-3 inches, that depends upon whether your growth plates have fused or not (most likely they have). Easiest way to show this is to get an xray of your hand to assess said growth plates. If fused, you won't grow any taller. If not yet fused, there's a chance you might grow but no guarantees. ...Read more

I am 19 years old and my height is very short 5 ft. 5 inch. Is there any chance to grow 2-3 inches more ?

Unlikely: Most of the growth spurts are done by 19 years of age. 5'5" is a reasonable height and you may still grow a few cms more. If you are still concerned see your doctor for height evaluation like X-ray for bone age and certain hormone levels in blood. ...Read more

Dr i want to increase my weight.My height is 5feet 10 inch.And I am 63 kgs.What should I eat to gain atleast 7 kgs in two months .

Diet and muscle mass: To gain weight you have to consume more calories than you are burning. Do this in a healthy way though. Don't choose junk or fast food. Keep a well balanced diet and make sure you are getting all the nutrients you need. Don't cut out exercise as it is very good for you. Weight lifting and other muscle building exercises can help you increase your body mass. ...Read more

I am a 17 year old female and my height is 5'4. I think that i can still grow, so is it possible to grow another 2 inches? Any tips, diet, or exercises

I am a 17 year old female and my height is 5'4. I think that i can still grow, so is it possible to grow another 2 inches? Any tips, diet, or exercises

You probably can't: Sorry to bear bad news, but if you are an 17 year old woman there is likely no way to increase your height. Height increases from the growth plates in bones and they usually close 2-3 years after puberty. After this no growth is possible. Most women stop growing by age 16. At this point you need to learn to accept your height (or try platform shoes- please stay away from high heels!). ...Read more

I am 16 and1/2 years old with 5.4 height . I had not grown more than 2 inches in last year do my growth plates are fused or i can grow more?

Male or female?: Without seeing you and doing a tanner stage it is impossible to predict if you have reached your maximum height. If you are male (as I suspect based on your concern), then you may not be done with puberty and may have some height growth remaining. Look at your parents/family members - they will give a general indication of how tall you can expect to be and IF you are much shorter, see your doc ...Read more

I am 22 years old and my height is 5'1 , so i want to grow at least 2 or 3 inches more , what should I do, what supplement would be best for me ?

Accept it: I am sorry to tell you that most men stop growing by age 18 (though occasionally there will be slight increases up to about 21). But no 22 year old is going to grow any taller. Once the growth plates of your bones have closed further growth is impossible. At this point all you can do is accept that this is who you are and how tall you will be. ...Read more

Unlikely: Your height is determined mostly by your genetics, and some by nutrition. Stretching will not lead to 2 to 3 inches of height. Most believe that once a woman has had her period consistently for a year her height is at its maximum. ...Read more

Does grow taller 4 idiots work? I am almost 17 and want to add some inches to my height.

Scam: This is testimonial-based and the testimonials are obviously fabricated. They're especially cruel as they describe women preferring a man for his height above everything else -- this is simply not true, and like all deceptive ads are intended to cause unhappiness. For a man, 95% of looking good is your level of physical fitness. Mr. Mcqueen, sex-and-fitness idol of an entire era, was 5'6". ...Read more

Not at your age: Barring extensive and expensive surgery (not recommended), you will not grow taller. Your personality is more of a social plus than height. So, try to do your inner work of self acceptance, keeping fit, and making the world a bit better and you will be happier w/everything. Peace and good health. ...Read more
