How to increase height in the age of 17?

Balanced nutrition: At seventeen your growth centers have limited if any potential for growth and simple measures help the best. Follow a healthy diet, rest and exercise, but no special diet or exercise will alter your genetic potential. If you want to know how much longer you have to grow, an x-ray of your wrist and hand can be analysed for bone maturity. If more like a 14 yo you can grow more, if 17 you are done

There is no therapy: At age 17, most boys and virtually all girls bone growth plates are closed. Thus growth hormone that may work before the closure of growth plates no longer work. Unfortunately you are stuck with your height.

How can I increase my height at age of 17. now my height is 5.0 foot?

Nothing will help: You probably stopped growing about 2 years after your first menstrual period due to normal fusion of your bone's growth plates. Once they are fused there is nothing that will allow you additional growth and no need for hormonal testing

How to increase height at the age of 19?

How to increase height at the age of 19?

Platform shoes: At a listed age of 22, there is little hope you can "grow" taller. The growth centers that determine linear growth close after adolescence, at 16-17 in most females and 18 in most males. After closure, you can not grow taller. A single x-ray of your wrist and hand can tell if your growth plates remain open, if not you are done.

What are natural ways to increase height at the age of 19?

Platform shoes: Unfortunately, the majority of people have ceased growing in height by 19 years old. Your doctor could obtain a screening x-ray to see if the growth plates in your long bones have closed. If so, only surgical manipulation will change nature.

Is it possible to increase height at the age of 18? If yes, what are the possible ways?

Is it possible to increase height at the age of 18? If yes, what are the possible ways?

Unlikely: Most 18 year-olds are pretty much done growing because growth plates fuse even before this age. If a teenager has delayed puberty then growth may continue past that. If an 18 year-old has concerns about height or physical development I would recommend discussing with the primary care provider.

How to increase height at the age of 24, 4-6inches atleast. Is this possible to increase in height and if yes, then how much time is needed?

How to increase height at the age of 24, 4-6inches atleast. Is this possible to increase in height and if yes, then how much time is needed?

Not usually: Most girls have their growth spurt 2 years before and 2 years after the beginning of their periods. At this late date, another 4-6 inches would be very unlikely. There really isn't anything you can do about your height at this age (or most ages- it's usually related to your genetics). Accept who you are and focus on your strengths and other qualities.

My age is 17 years and my height 57 inches so what can I do to increase my height? Is it possible to increase height after 17???

Growth potential: After puberty, most men and women do not experience much increase in height. The best way to maximize your height is through balanced nutrition, good posture and exercises that will strengthen your back and core muscles to support your spine.

How to increase height by 2_3inches...I regularly do cycling. What other exercise should I do...Age 19?

How to increase height by 2_3inches...I regularly do cycling. What other exercise should I do...Age 19?

You are full-grown: Sorry to give you disappointing news, but it is rare for girls to grow after age 16-18, in fact most girls stop growing around age 14. Bone growth is caused by "growth plates" and once the growth plates close (usually 2-3 years after puberty) the bones are unable to grow. Nothing can change this. You need to accept your current height.

You are likely done: If you entered puberty the same time as your friends and your bone maturity is that of a 19 yo there is little you can do to increase your height.A single x-ray of your left hand can be assessed for bone maturity. If 19, you are done growing, if bony maturity is more like 15 you might grow an additional couple of inches. There are no magic solutions if your growth centers r closed.

Is it possible to increase height after the age of 22? My height is 5'7.How can I increase my height? What type of exercises should I do externally

No: You've probably reached your full height. In most cultures, taller is a plus for a man, but it's completely overridden in the "looks" department by your muscular development and overall level of fitness. There's nothing you're going to be able to do about your height, but you can look fantastic just by spending an hour a day in the gym. Lee Priest (photo guy) is 5'2", not complaining.

I'm a 22 yrs old guy weighted just 50kg and height 5, 5ft. Is it possible to increase height in this age and the weight as well?

NO!!: At 22 years old, you will not grow taller. It is impossible for anyone to "make" themselves grow taller. If you want to gain weight, there are plenty of sites online that show you how to do this safely - build protein and weight train.
