This is crucial, because individual measurements may be +/-, due to squirming babies or slightly different measuring techniques.

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

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

Height growth , increase height through yoga - http://bodyheightcom.Blogspot.In known as a height growth, increase height through yoga  is possible wi?

Not possible but...: The yoga exercises advised on that website will improve your posture & help you stand straighter to maximize the height you have, but it is impossible for you to grow even 1 more mm. This is because height is determined by length of our bones and they grow from a part called the growth plate. Once the growth plates fuse (age 17-22 in men) it is impossible for the bones to lengthen at all. ...Read more

Unlikely to happen: Growth centers in long bones determine how tall you can grow.Most growth centers will close at 16-17. If your growth centers are open, a balanced diet/rest ; healthy physical activity will support good growth and gh injections would only get you to your expected genetic height faster, not add extra. ...Read more

Female 20 weight 47kgs height 5'3..i want to grow a few inches..any healthy tip please?

You are full-grown: Once the growth plates of your bones have fused it is impossible to grow any more. Generally this occurs 2-3 years after a woman starts menstruating. You need to accept that this is your height. Height is mostly determined by our genes. Diet and lifestyle measures to increase your production of HGH when you were younger may have helped a bit, but it is too late to help now. But 5'3" is average. ...Read more
