How To Increase Height At 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 ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Mostly no bones stop: Growing by that time, and there is no open area for the bones to expand (growth plates closed). ...Read more

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. ...Read more
My age 19 yrs. I wanted to know if there are any exercises to increase height. I do take a good diet. I m 5'11 from past two years.
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Shoe selection: The growth centers of most males will close by age 18 although a few will grow a little longer. By 20, the growth centers have closed and you are done. If you wish, an x-ray of your hand could identify any additional growth potential. Good diet, exercise and proper rest allows you to reach your maximum height. ...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
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

Want to increase height approx 3 inch. Can it is possible age is 20 year old. Will do anything to increase height.
Unlikely to happen: Some kids continue to grow taller into their late teens or rarely early twenties but only when their bone maturity lags behind their age. If the growth centers of the long bones have fused, you cannot grow taller. A single x-ray of the wrist/hand can yield a bone maturity. When your maturity reaches 18-19, your growth centers have fused and you are done. No meds or exercises can change that. ...Read more
Is their any possibility to increase height after the age of 21 in males? And if so could you give me some advice. Thnx
You cannot: As a 20 year old male, your growth is likely done and your bones growth plates closed. There are no supplements or hormones you could take that are going to make a difference at this point in time. You need to accept where you are at and get on with living your life at your current stature. ...Read more
