I'm 17 and can't move up from 1,65 m (5.4 ft.). I used to have a normal growth cycle and average height. I believe the above is rather low for a 17-year-old, as I am the shortest male in my class (not by a lot, as most exceed me by only a few cm, but still).
I was 1,61 (5.3) at 15, and in two (going on three) years time I've grown only 4 cm.
I'd say it's genes, but I am possibly the shortest male in the family tree - as height seems to vary from 1,70 to 1,75 (5,6 - 5,7).
I weigh 56 kg (123.45 lbs) - although I still have some
baby fat on my stomach (you'd think after all that exercising I'd have good abs - NOPE!)
I've always seemed to grow by slightly gaining weight, then going up, losing the formerly gained kilos. But that (the weight thing) hasn't happened for 5 years now, and I've always been underweight as well as borderline anemic.
I don't believe I have a fast metabolism, so I don't see a reason in the lack of weight, as I feed regularly (with the exception of school days, when I eat a fairly small breakfast and skip lunch).
Has my growth completely stopped, and if yes, why? Shouldn't I be at least 1,70 m?
Is there a way to stimulate growth without
taking growth hormones – i.e. nutrition, exercise, tempo?
I will provide additional info if necessary. Thanks in advance
