    How can i grow taller

    I'm a teen. My present height is 5'5". Since past one year I grew only half an inch. My dad is 5'11" and my mom is 5'4". I'm now quite concerned about my height because my classmates who were shorter than me reached my height, while those who were of my height grew taller. Will I grow to 6 feet? If yes, how? If no, what will be my max height and how can i grow to it ??? . Also, i masturbate daily. Does it affect my growth???

    Re: How can i grow taller

    Hi,

    I took my son to a specialist because he was the smallest of about 400 boys and the dr said boys can grow up until their low 20's. I'm 5'4" dad is 5'6" and now my son is 27 and is 5'6" however, doesn't care about it, just when he was In school.

    You could go to a endocrinologist and get checked. Out.

    I am by no means an medical expert just wanted to share my experierance. Cathy

    Re: How can i grow taller

    Your height is predetermined by genetics...and no amount of stretching or exercising will make a difference in your total height, although exercising may stretch muscles and make you appear leaner or taller- and its certainly good for your overall health.
    Men can continue growing up through their 20s until about the age of 24....and some guys have late growth spurts. Every 7 years or so, a person hits a growth spurt, which is why at age 7, you stop looking like a little boy, at age 14 you hit puberty and start growing facial and chest hair and at age 21 , tend to bulk up and even grow taller... some guys hit these things alittle earlier, some alittle later- but all guys hit growth spurts a few times before they are men...then, it eases up a bit, until you hit middle age, when your metabolism slows down and you start worrying about aging, getting a gut, and losing your hair!

    There is no way to predict what will happen to you, however your father and grandfather, are good indicators of trends....their height, their hair patterns their weight and even their heart conditions are good indicators of your future, but nothing is guaranteed. A. we know more than your grandfather did about protecting our health B. we have options to take better care of ourselves through preventitive medicine and C. we have better medical care overall....so, just because your grandfather had a certain medical condition, doesnt automatically mean youll get it....but you are more prone to getting something related.

    As for your height....you cant force yourself to grow. You cant stretch yourself into growing- if you truly feel that you are not at normal height, you should see a doctor for a complete physical to make sure there is nothing wrong with your thyroid or other systems....some blood work and a good physical will tell you if there is anything abnormal going on....
    Best to you..

    I was told by my son's endo dr that girls stop growing once they start their menstral cycle. Cathy

    I don't know about actually growing taller, but if you have good posture it can make you appear taller. My mum is really short, 5'4", but because she never slouches or anything, people think she's a lot taller.
