How to increase height at a age of17???

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

Can i increase my height even at the age of 21?

Can i increase my height even at the age of 21?

Platform shoes: The potential additional length anyone can expect depends on areas in the long bones (arms, legs, fingers)called growth plates. This is where growth occurs and an active open growth plate means more growth is possible. An x-ray of the hands & wrists can be evaluated for bone maturity since there are many growth centers to see. If your bone maturity is > 18yo you are done growing taller. ...Read more

Sir, what is the last age of height increasing? Can height increase after 21 in males. Can any HGH supplements work on height after 21?

21-22, very rare, no: Most men stop growing between ages 18-20 though there are rare cases of growing at 21 and very rarely at 22. But the odds of growing after 21 are quite small, as usually the growth plates of the bones have closed. Once the growth plates have closed then HGH can not help to increase height. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b73LhEoLzoQ for rare cases of late growth spurts. ...Read more

Can we increase height even at age 24?

Not without surgery.: An adult stops growing after the epiphyseal plates (growth plates) of their long bones fuse together, which typically happens in the teenage years. After that, the only way to increase height is by bone-lengthening surgery, where a surgical break is made in the shin bones and an apparatus is inserted which allows a doctor to, day by day, painfully split the bones apart. You only get 2-3 inches. ...Read more

At what age do you reach full height?

Height: If you've completed puberty you aren't likely to grow taller. Girls complete puberty by ages 15 to 17 & for boys it is by ages 16 to 17. However, if one enters puberty late, they will usually also complete it late. Our height is largely determined by genetics (our parents' height). If you are healthy (no unusual causes for stunted growth/ smaller stature) then there is not a way to become taller ...Read more

I want increase my height at 18 years age?

No more growth: You need to come to terms with the fact that you are not going to grow anymore. At 18 , if you get maybe another 1/2 inch of growth, i'd be surprised. Your height is genetically determined, and your bones fuse in males by age18 , meaning no further growth is going to happen. There is no medication, hormone or other internet snake oil going to give you any more inches. Time to accept this is you! ...Read more

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
