Gigantisme: If you are growing too much- more than expected, meaning that your parents are not tall, but you are very tall and continue to grow- your condition may be abnormal and you should go to see your doctor for more evaluation. You would need to get some blood work and some imaging like MRI of the head is likely to be done. Referral to an endocrinologist & neurosurgeon can be done accordingly as needed. Read more

When do males stop growing in height?

When do males stop growing in height?

Depends on variables: Skeletal maturity determines the duration of linear growth. If the bone maturity is ahead of a persons age, they finish growing sooner. An x-ray of your wrist and hand can be analysed for open growth centers. If they are closed you are finished growing taller. Most males are done at 17-18, a few with delayed bone maturity continue to grow slightly. Read more

When do men typically stop growing in height?

16-20 years: Most men finish their height growth by age 20 years. Rarely, there may be growth after that, & often growth is over before then. Seeing an x-ray of growth plates of bones (so called "bone age") can give a good estimate of the likelihood of future growth potential. Genetics plays a major role here, so knowing when related males finished their growth would help in predicting one's ultimate height. Read more

My height is depressing me. At what age do girls stop growing?

Depends: The hormones of puberty trigger both the final growth spurt and eventual closure of the growth centers. Women generally grow 5-7 cm after their first menses, which itself can happen at differing age based on genetic and dietary factors. Most will finish by 16-17.A single x-ray of the wrist/hand can identify growth centers as either open (more growth) or closed (finished growing). Read more

I'm 16 years old and and my height is 5'11". When will I stop growing tall?

I'm 16 years old and and my height is 5'11". When will I stop growing tall?

Soon if not already: Future growth is dependent on whether the growth centers in your long bones remain open. Most have closed by 17-18 yo in males. If your family has a history of delayed growth, these may be open and more growth possible. An x-ray of your wrist/hand can detect your bone maturity. If the index is consistent with 16, you may grow an inch or so, if it shows the growth centers closed, you are finished Read more

I am 21 years old. My height is 6.2. I am still growing. I am asking about how to stop the growth?

I am 21 years old. My height is 6.2. I am still growing. I am asking about how to stop the growth?

Will stop soon: It is rare to still be growing at age 21 but rarely men do continue to grow until about age 21. But it is the natural course of things that you will stop growing very soon. Our height is mostly determined by genetics and I know of nothing other than the passage of time that will stop you from growing. Read more

At what age boys stop height growth and iAm turning 17 can I grow still taller. Iam about 5feet 5inches???

Depends on variables: Most males finish their growth by age 17-18. Growth centers in the long bones respond to the hormones of puberty by closing at a predictable pace. An x-ray of your wrist and hand can be assessed for growth plates and if more like a 14-15 yo you could expect more growth. If your growth plates have closed, you are done. Read more

I'm 16 years old my height 183cm and I'm male. I want to stop growing taller can you tell me any exercise or foods or anything that stops me growing?

No exercise or food: There are not any exercise or foods that will stop your growth. There are medications that can prematurely fuse the growth plates, but the side effects far outweight any benefit that you would get. Be happy with your height, it makes you unique! Read more
