Raising HGH by...: Most men stop growing around age 18 but occasionally some grow until age 21. Our height is mostly determined by genetics but taking measures to increase your production of growth hormone might help maximize your potential height. See "http://www.Thebodywellusa.Com/blog/dr-mike-carraghers-top-10-ways-to-increase-your-human-growth-hormone-hgh-levels" for good information on measures that may help. ...Read more
Depends: Final height is reached when the growth centers of your bones close and further linear growth cannot occur. This varies in most men from 16-20 and women from 15-17. A single x-ray of the wrist/hand can be assessed for open growth centers. When open, more growth is possible, if closed it is finished. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unlikely to help: At 21 your growth centers have likely closed so don't expect to grow taller.If you want to know for sure an x-ray of your wrist & hand can be analysed for bone maturity & tell if the growth centers remain open to new growth. ...Read more
Balanced nutrition: At seventeen your growth centers have limited potential for growth and simple measures help the best.Follow a healthy diet, rest and exercise, but weight lifting will not make you grow taller than 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 close to 17 you have a little left, if like 15 you have mor. ...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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Varies: Most girls will be done at 16 but some finish later depending on the status of their growth centers. If open, they can grow more (xrays can verify) in general, they grow 2.5 inches or 5 cm after their first menses.The hormones of puberty send out instructions to the growth centers to finish up. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not really: Good posture allows you to assume your proper length and exercise and stretching of all sorts can help create a stable frame. However, you attain your maximum stature by maintaining a balanced diet, getting proper rest, and exercise.You cannot increase your final height by stretching, gravity will eventually remove any temporary increase.You stop growing taller when your bone growth centers close. ...Read more
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
