Current Height: 5'5-5'6?

It does what it does: Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic childhood illnesses, height is largely based on genetics. If one is in his late-teens and had a little growth last year, he might grow a bit. Aside from eating right, exercising, sleeping well, and being happy during his younger growing years, there's not a way to increase a normal person's height. ...Read more

Greater than 99%: Your son is greater than the 99% for both height and weight for boys his age. This means that basically nobody (or very few) boys are larger than he is at his age. What's even more important is his body mass index (BMI). Here's a way for you to calculate that at the following link: https://nccd.cdc.gov/dnpabmi/calculator.aspx. 99% tile "obese" ...Read more

Hi' i'm 18 and 67 inches tall. my dad is 75 inches tall. can i grow taller than him??

Unlikely : By the age of 18 your growth plates are going to be closing pretty soon. This is the part of the bone that allows new bone to form and lengthen the bones. For most people this happens around 18-20. You are probably going to grow another two to three inches but you might not catch your dad! ...Read more

The most usual: height predictor is done by pediatricians when the baby is 2: double his height at age 2! Other estimators use a calculator taking into account the parent's heights: add the mother's and father's height together, add 5 inches, divide by 2. This is purported to reliably give a result within 4 inches of what will really happen. That's about the best GUESS I can give you. Good wishes:) ...Read more

No such thing: Even for young adults, these are subscience. At any adult age, the best weight is what looks and feels right to the person and enables them to do the things they enjoy -- hopefully including some fitness activities. An older person needs adequate muscle but fat isn't an asset. Don't target a number, target a level of fitness and function. ...Read more
