Sir I'm a boy of 20 my height is 163 cm & weight is 70kg. Is my height perfect and till what age I will grow?

Growth plates: Every person continues to grow vertically because the growth plates in your long bones are still active and allow you to get taller. The growth plates of most males close up some time around the end of pubescence, about age 20-22. So you may have a little bit of growing yet to do at age 20... ...Read more

I am a boy and I am 20 years old. My father height 6"1.5".My mother is 5'3".But I am 5'8"at the age of 20.I want to grow 6 feet. Boys grow till 25?

I am a boy and I am 20 years old. My father height 6"1.5".My mother is 5'3".But I am 5'8"at the age of 20.I want to grow 6 feet. Boys grow till 25?

Very unlikely!: You can ask your Dad when he stopped growing but most boys stop growing by the age of 18. The most definitive test is called the "bone age" wherein they X-ray your wrist, hand, and fingers at once and compare it to an atlas of "standards". Your bones lengthen at the ends, not the middle. It will tell you how much potential growth you have left in your skeleton. Also read "Serenity Prayer". ...Read more

I am 19 ears old boy, my height is 179 sm.... My wish from childhood was to grow taller to 185 sm..... Can you tell me how can I grow 6 sm on age 19?

I am 19 ears old boy, my height is 179 sm.... My wish from childhood was to grow taller to 185 sm..... Can you tell me how can I grow 6 sm on age 19?

Unlikely to happen: Your expected height by genetics alone would be the average of your parents height (mom+ dad/2) plus 5cm. At 19 your growth centers have probably fused and no more linear growth is expected. A single x-ray of your left hand & wrist can be analysed for signs of open growth centers & growth potential, but if it shows a bone maturity equal to your age, you are done growing taller. ...Read more

I'm a 16y/o boy who is 5'1. I am scared about my height because of prednisone use at age 12-14. My bone age is 15. Will I grow any more?

I'm a 16y/o boy who is 5'1. I am scared about my height because of prednisone use at age 12-14. My bone age is 15. Will I grow any more?

Should grow more: Most with a bone maturity of 15 y have at least an inch or two more they will grow. I wouldn't expect six, but you should get some. Expected genetic height (without prednisone effect) would be the average of your parents plus 2.5 inches +/-. ...Read more

Dear madam. I am a boy and I am 20 years old. My father height 6"1.5".My mother is 5'3".But I am 5'8"at the age of 20.I want to grow 6 feet. When I was?

Incomplete question: As written, your statement does not ask a clear question. Your expected final height based on your parents would be 5'10.75 +/- 1 inch. At the age of 20, your growth centers are likely closed and you are as tall as you will ever be. A single x-ray of your wrist/hand could verify any growth potential. ...Read more

At what age boys stop height growth and iAm turning 17 can I grow still taller. Iam about 5feet 5inches???

Depends on variables: Most males finish their growth by age 17-18. Growth centers in the long bones respond to the hormones of puberty by closing at a predictable pace. An x-ray of your wrist and hand can be assessed for growth plates and if more like a 14-15 yo you could expect more growth. If your growth plates have closed, you are done. ...Read more

What age. Do fingers stop lengthening and widening? In teen boys what age do the plates fuse. Also do hands stop growing before height?

Long bone growth: The growth centers in all long bones follow a similar pattern. The growth centers in the hand and wrist are even used to predict when final linear growth is finished. Closure of the growth centers in the wrist/hand is complete in most males at 17-18 with a few lagging behind. When the hand centers are closed, linear growth in the hands and height in general will stop. ...Read more

What is max age till which a boy's height increases?

What is max age till which a boy's height increases?

Most stop at 17: Growing bones have plates of new growth located just before the bone ends. These growth plates have less density than bone & show up on xray as a dark line like a crack. As long is there are actine growth plates, there is potential for more growth in that bone. A hand xray is often studied in short kids to see if they have more time to grow. A few grow into their 20's. ...Read more

Till which age height of boy will increase and what should I do to increase my height as I am tok short at age of 17. Is exercise helpful give me ti?

Depends on bone age: The additional height anyone can expect depends on areas in the long bones (arms, legs)called growth plates. This is where growth occurs and an active open growth plate means more growth. An xray of the hands ; wrists can be evaluated for bone maturity since there are many growth centers to see. Proper diet and exercise help you reach your potential while lack of it can stunt you. Most 18 yo are done. ...Read more

Would you consider a boy of age 18 with height 187cms "too tall" or just "tall"?

Would you consider a boy of age 18 with height 187cms "too tall" or just "tall"?

Just Tall: Your height is at the 95th percentile on growth chart meaning you are just tall and within the normal limits for height. At age 18 yrs you are mostly done with growing & near your maximum adult height. Your weight is not given but important to know. Height is genetically determined. If you have had normal health visits with your doctor, there is no need for concern. Tallness is a nice trait too! ...Read more

Does height of a boy increase after an age of 18?

Does height of a boy increase after an age of 18?

Growth unlikely: An 18 yr old is not growing taller if his growth plates have fused. If not fused, he will grow a tiny bit (pediatrician's growth chart for him can tell if growth has stopped). To look taller, one can choose properly designed clothing & shoes, and have good posture. Vitamins, supplements, "special" foods, extra exercise, etc... will not make a person taller if he already closed his growth plates. ...Read more

I'm 17 years old boy with height 154 cm. The question is can I grow taller?

Unlikely to happen: At seventeen your growth centers have likely closed and you are unlikely 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. Good nutrition, rest and exercise allow a person to reach their tallest height while the opposite will stunt growth. ...Read more

Big for age not obes: Your son is growing as fast as my son. If you fit him on a growth chart he will be at 95th percentile for weight and about 90th percentile for height. Which means he has outgrown 90% of boys his age. Follow this link for growth chart: http://www. Cdc. Gov/growthcharts/data/set1clinical/cj41l021.Pdf.

Time: Roy, men do most of their growing between the ages of 15 and 25. Girls hit their peak growth much sooner. You are just beginning your time of peak growth. Be patient! There is no way to predict what your maximum height will be, but in most cases, your max height will be similar to your parents'. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Hello, I'm 17 years old, I'm a boy and I'm only 155 CM height, can I still grow until 21 years old, and how much? Please answer. Thank you.

Possible: It depends on genetics and parental height, as well as your level of maturity, called Sexual Maturity Rating.
Since you are under 18, you would want to share this info with your parents and discuss with them too.
You have not provided a lot of info I would need to answer it fully. ...Read more

Reply: Your height is almost 5 feet 6 inches. Height mostly depends upon your genetics, parents heights. Most of the boys stop growing in height around 18-19 yrs of age but some late bloomers may keep growing till 21 yrs of age. By that age you may have adult like facial and pubic hair. ...Read more

Ima 12 yrs old boy and my height is 5'0 and I'm aiming for 6'0 my classmate said that masturbating can help me grow up I tried it but I didn't grew up?

Doubt that but...: A common myth is masturbating stunts growth- I've never heard it touted to improve growth! There's no evidence it affects growth either way. Were you expecting overnite results? The average 12 yo who's 5'0" will wind up about 6'0"-see a growth chart.If you want to exceed that see http://www. Thebodywellusa.

If I am a boy, I can grow height until when years?

If I am a boy, I can grow height until when years?

Hard to say: Future growth is dependent on whether the growth centers in your long bones remain open. Most have closed in 18 yo males. If your family has a history of delayed growth, these may be open and growth possible. An x-ray of your wrist and hand can detect your bone maturity. If the index is consistent with >18, you are done, if 14 you can grow more. ...Read more

Balanced nutrition: At sixteen your growth centers have some potential for growth & simple measures help the best. Keep active & a healthy diet but don't expect to grow taller than your genetic potential. If you want to know how much longer you have to grow, an x-ray of your wrist & hand can be analysed for bone maturity & your doc can give you an estimate. ...Read more

My 6 month old baby boy weights 20.4 pounds and he is 28 inches in height. Is my baby growing okay? Thanks doctors!!!

Big Boy!: Your doctor must be weighing and measuring your baby every time you go to for a check up. He is ~95 th percentile for weight and height. Which means he is growing very well and he is proportional as far as weight and height are concerned. If the parents are big and tall as well then this is the best growth for him. You should continue to visit his doctor and discuss his diet and his growth charts. ...Read more

No growth last year?: If no growth in the last 12 months, then growth has finished. Otherwise, one should still grow a bit. 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 can do about height. ...Read more

No: If you entered puberty the same time as your friends & your bone maturity is that of a 19 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 19, you are done growing, if bony maturity is more like 15 you might grow an additional couple of inches. There are no magic solutions if your growth centers r closed. ...Read more
