Height: It is very unlikely that you will grow any taller at your age.
If possible, contact your pediatrician who charted your height and weight until you were 19 or so. If that is a the low end you should share this with your current doctor.

That said, is short stature common in your family? ...Read more

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

Are there HGH supplements or sprays for people after puberty that exceeds genes to increase height? I'm 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

Iam 25 what I do increase height?

Iam 25 what I do increase height?

Not possible: If your height has been the same for the past 2 years, which usually happens at the end of puberty and usually well before age 20, the growth plates in your bones have fused and it is not possible to gain height anymore. Having short stature in a culture that thinks big is better can be hard, but find ways of focusing on your other assets and your personality. Depressed? Please see counselor. ...Read more

How can I increase height permanently?

Platform shoes: At a listed age of 37, there is no way to "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. There are no special meds, diets, exercises, that help. Hanging upside down also does not help (although we've been asked multiple times) ...Read more

Is there any way to increase height after 20 for boys....? I

Unlikely to happen: Some kids continue to grow taller into their late teens or rarely early twenties but only when their bone maturity lags behind their age. If the growth centers of the long bones have fused, you cannot grow taller. A single x-ray of the wrist & hand can yield a bone maturity. When you have reached bony maturity, you are done. ...Read more

I am 24 and my height is 154 cm. Is there any treatment to increase height?

No: Unfortunately, by 19-20 years old, most peoples' bone growth plates have closed, and you are as tall as you are going to get. Should work to accept you for who (and how tall) you are and identify your gifts rather than focus on detractors. ...Read more

Is it possible to increase height by stretching spine after puberty? If yes how much can I gain?

Is it possible to increase height by stretching spine after puberty? If yes how much can I gain?

Not really: Stretching your spine will not increase your height after puberty. Occasionally we see some additional height when significant spinal deformities are surgically corrected. After skeletal maturity, you reach your final height. There are some leg lengthening surgeries, but again they are reserved for pathological conditions. ...Read more

I am 17 years & 8 months old, my height is 5'1.Please tell me way to increase height. I will be gratefull to you.

May be too late but: I am sorry to tell you that most men stop growing around age 18- but occasionally some will grow until age 21 or so. Taking measures to increase your production of growth hormone might help, but if your growth plates have closed (like most 17 2/3 yo's)then you've reached your max.

My daughter is 13 years 3 months. Her height is 4' 8''. I want to know about sandoz calcium for increase height her kindly advice me?

No benefit: Your final height is determined by inherited genetic factors. It can be lessened by poor health &poor diet.There are no supplements (calcium), special foods, special stretches or exercises that make you taller. An x-ray of her wrist/hand can determine bone maturity & reveal evidence suggestive of growth hormone deficiency or simple delay of growth. ...Read more

I'm a 19yr old female, 5`7, 115l, is there a way I can increase height by a few inches? I'm totally desperate to know if I can manipulate my cartilage

I'm a 19yr old female, 5`7, 115l, is there a way I can increase height by a few inches? I'm totally desperate to know if I can manipulate my cartilage

Unlikely: Cartilage has little to do with height as most have standard amounts. The major driver for height originates in the long bones of the body, primarily the legs. When the growth centers of the legs have quit making new bone, as would be expected by 19 in a female, you are done. Postural manipulation or stretching can give a temporary boost, but fades quickly. ...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 to increase height I'm 22 and my height is 5.6'?

Height is done by 22: Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens. 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

Is there any way to increase height?? I'm 18 now. Pls tell me I need to increase my height atleast 4inches

Reg Excercize & Food: If you have regular me natural cycles then your chances of increasing height has diminished. However, I do not think a special diet will help increase height. A regular regimen of excersize and a good normal diet with some extra proteins will help you maintain good health and in my opinion that will maximize your growth potential. Not worrying too much about it will also help. Wishing you the best. ...Read more

How to increase height? .I am 18 yrs old now..

Cross your fingers: There's no good way for the average person to purposefully increase his/her height short of going through puberty while getting enough healthy calories. However, in those w/proven short stature & open epiphyses, growth hormone may help. But if your growth plates are closed, then growth hormone won't make you any taller. So start by first getting an xray of your hand to evaluate those growth plates. ...Read more

Platform shoes: If you entered puberty the same time as your friends & your bone maturity is that of an 18 yo there is little you can do to increase your height.A single x-ray of your left hand can be assessed for bone maturity. If 18, you are almost done growing, if bony maturity is more like 15 you might grow an additional couple of inches.
