Is there a height where my 15yo qualifies for HGH to increase his height?

Is there a height where my 15yo qualifies for HGH to increase his height?

Complicated: Absolutely speaking, if a boy is less than -2.25 sd on height chart or - 2 sd below mid-parental height and if his growth plates are still open , then he deserves a thorough evaluation quickly to determine if he can be helped. ...Read more

Is it possible to increase height by the use of hgh?

If bones r growing: Growth hormone can cause vertical growth if the bones are still growing. At the ends of long bones are the growth plates. Once they fuse to the rest of the bone, usually in mid to late teens, growth is no longer possible. And real growth hormone is available only as an injection. The "hgh" they use for weight loss will not increase height. ...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

Would taking fertility drugs for IUIs (unsure if had HGH in them) cause height increase? Would effects be fairly immediate or long term like yrs later

Fertility and height: The growth plates of your bones fused right after you went through puberty, many years ago, so nothing will make you grow now. Talk to your fertility doc about the hormones, but they probably do not include hGH. Usually drugs that stimulate LH and FSH. ...Read more

I am 21 years old my height is 64 inches. I want to increse my height are there any HGH medicines to help me . I want to increase height by any method?

Too late: By age 21 years it is too late to use hormones to increase your height because your growth plates on your long bones are closed. The only thing that might work would be surgery to increase the length of your leg bones. I am not even sure if that will work at your age. You can see an orthopedic surgeon for a consult. ...Read more

How would I go about getting an appointment with an endocrinologist in Vancouver, Canada regarding HGH therapy to increase height?

How would I go about getting an appointment with an endocrinologist in Vancouver, Canada regarding HGH therapy to increase height?

Referral: In the United States, most insurance plans and/or specialists will require a referral from a primary care physician. I apologize, but am not clear if this is the same situation with the Canadian healthcare system, but strongly suspect that it is. ...Read more

Is it that more amount of HGH and estrogen trigger a growth hormone? Can we increase height by increasing the above two hormones?

No: The greatest factor involved in your ultimate adult height is genetic factors (height of your mother and father). Unless you have growth hormone deficiency and/or estrogen deficiency, taking these hormones will not signifiantly change your ultimate height. Of course, at age 24, your growth plates are fused and there is no possible way to increase your height no matter what you take. ...Read more

Growth plates: Once we hit adulthood and our growth plates are fused - we can not gain any more height. At 20 yrs of age, your growth plates should be fused. Sorry, but there are no medicines or stretching or herbs or whatever that are going to be able to change that for you. ...Read more

Are there HGH supplements or sprays for people after puberty that exceeds genes to increase height ? Im desperate to grow past 5'1 at 17

Are there HGH supplements or sprays for people after puberty that exceeds genes to increase height ? Im desperate to grow past 5'1 at 17

No: At 17 most females have finished linear growth and their growth centers will close. If you entered puberty along with your age group you are likely done and no supplements will do anything for you. An x-ray of your wrist and hand can be studied for bone maturity. If more like a 14 year old you would have growth potential, if consistent with 17 you are done. ...Read more
