# Age matters in increasing growth

**Age is one of the most important factors (after genetics) in determining your height. You may be in your teens or even 25s and wish you were taller. At what age can you grow 10 centimeters or more, and when will you no longer grow? **.

The human body is governed by its own laws. The endocrine system works differently depending on your age.

## Natural growth process

**1. A child grows the most during the first few years**.

2. Growth slows and **stabilizes**.

3. A second, similar stage of increased growth is the **period of puberty** between the ages of 11-16.

4. Thereafter, **growth slows rapidly**, although it is not completely halted.

The epiphyseal/growth plates are made up of cartilage, which is found at the ends of growing bones. This cartilage is essential for the formation of new bone tissue. Still some people grow without any effort (unconsciously). The potential for easy growth will continue for several more years until the bone epiphyses have fused. Bone epiphyses are still made of cartilage tissue, which is susceptible to stimulation and which systematically elongates the bone shaft. The amount of growth hormone at this age is still at a good level. So a sixteen year old boy has a good chance of growing as much as ten centimeters before the end of the whole stage, but it is worth learning the basics to make the task easier for his body in order to maximize the effect.

In the final stage, the epiphyseal cartilage turns into compact bone, and natural **bone growth is no longer possible.
**In men, the growth plates close by a maximum of 25 years of age, and in women by 20 years of age. This usually takes place several years earlier. After this time, the shafts of the bones fuse with the epiphyses, the epiphyses become calcified and of the 356 cartilage and bones of a teenager, an adult is left with 206 bones. Growth then stops, and the amount of essential growth hormone in the blood decreases with age.

## Average monthly human growth rate (USA)

Knowing this scenario, some conclusions are worth making. **Any program for growth is worth using especially at a young age, when the endocrine system and the whole body is ready for it.**.

## When 25-year-old “John” would like to grow

You’re sure to be bothered by the question of whether an adult with fused bone epiphyses can increase his or her height. Despite what the marketing screams, age still trumps how much you can affect this aspect of your physicality. Nevertheless, the answer is thankfully – YES. The most effective method to do this is **fracture** or microfracture of the long bone. This is based on **distraction osteogenesis** which is an operation in which the bone is cut, a scaffold is installed and the apparatus is regularly rotated, lengthening the bone. The bone grows during this time. However, the surgery is expensive, highly invasive and sometimes risky. Not everyone knows about possible complications such as infections, nerve or blood vessel damage etc. Amounts of thousands dolars are probably better spent on something else 🙂

This, however, is not the only way to grow taller. Going back to less drastic ways, just increasing the growth hormone in your blood will not make your bones longer. This is only part of the success, as it is still necessary to at least **microfracture the bones**. Microfracturing can also be done with other techniques without surgery and horrendous pain unlike Illizarov. However, these are experimental methods and carry potential risks.

It is also worthwhile to take care through proper posture and proper supplementation to keep the spine from shrinking and finally to stretch it as much as possible.

How much can I grow age 17 years tall 176-177cm , dad – 178 , mom – 160

Franek

I have a very important(at least to me) question. I turned 13 this month(early February).

My height is 152cm with a weight of 52kg. My mom is 158cm and my dad is about 169-173cm. I have two older brothers.

One of them is 184cm and the other is 178cm. Both of them were taller than my mom at my age (I am the only one who is shorter than her).

Many of my classmates are taller than 160cm. I am one of the lowest people in the class. Let me add that my foot size is 38. Am I able to grow above 180cm?

Good morning, What exactly does this mean ? “It is also worth using methods that cause non-invasive microfracture of the bone.”

you described this in Q&A, where can this be done at the age of 19 ? what is the risk of complications ? What does it involve ?

Is it a game worth the candle ?

Thank you in advance 🙂

My cousins are each about 188, but my mom is 170 and my dad is 175, so if I’m already a little bit bigger muscularly and sexually, is it possible to grow bigger?

I’m 15,5 years old and I’m 181cm tall. As a rule, every year I always grew 5-7cm. My mom is 172cm and my dad is 192cm.

I’d like to know if there’s a chance I’ll be taller than my dad and if there’s a chance I’ll be 195-200cm tall. I also add that I lead a healthy lifestyle a lot of exercise, walking, etc.

Greetings

Alan Rybczyński

Hi. You have a very good predisposition for above average height. 190 cm is rather easy to achieve. How much more you will grow depends mainly on your work, bone age, amount of growth hormone. It is difficult to estimate the final height.

Pablo

Daniel

I am 29 years old and of small height. Is it possible to stimulate my bones with some inexpensive herbs to make them grow even bigger? I’ve read that it has to stay that way and I’m scared that it will make me even taller. Maybe something can be done. You will immediately write that it has to be like this and that I am sorry, but what does it matter that someone is sorry, I am interested in the effects

Tobiasz

Good morning. For a long time I’ve been bothered by the question of how much more I could grow. I just had my 16th birthday, I’m currently 181cm tall, my mom is 158cm and my dad is 177cm, but I have a couple of pretty tall uncles, about 190cm. If I lead a healthy lifestyle, do I have a chance to grow from 183cm to 188cm? How big is my chance? How much more do you think I can grow? It is very important to me. Thank you in advance and best regards (;

Alan Rybczyński

Hi. From this, it seems that you have already outgrown the height given from your parents by several centimeters. How much you will grow depends on your growth rate in the last months, bone age, body predisposition and your lifestyle.

Natalia

Alan Rybczyński

Hello,

Genetic possibilities are around 172 cm, but I think you have a chance to exceed 175 cm. A lot depends now on you and the “routine” (lifestyle, exercise, etc) that you will follow.

zosia

Good morning,

i am 14 years old and i am 160cm. My mom is 169 and my dad is 174. I got my period a year ago and the growth stopped. I do a lot of sports. I weigh 44 kg. Is there any chance for me to be 170cm? I do athletics.

Alan Rybczyński

Hi

Yes, you still have a chance to gain a few inches. Athletics should do an excellent job of stimulating growth hormone output. Also make sure you eat a growth-appropriate diet.

Artur

Hey hey! I came across this blog by accident, for the first time. I’m Artur, if I’m 20 years and 7 months old and I’m about 177cm tall, will I still grow somewhere around 3 or 2cm through a healthy (mostly high-protein) diet, strength and stretching exercises?

I just want to add that my mom is somewhere around 156cm and dad is 171cm.

I would also like to ask what age a man grows to? Is it 18? 21? Or 25?

Thanks in advance for your answer! 😀

Crawlinger

Hello,

I am 19 years and 8 months old, 182 cm tall, do I have a chance to reach 184 in the future?

I’ve been using barbell overhangs for 2 months, while I had a sprained ankle the doctor said I still have open bone epiphyses (something like that). 😀

Alan Rybczyński

You have a chance, but don’t delay, because soon the epiphytes may grow together 🙂 You are near the end of the growth stage.

Michał

Good morning,

I am 25 years old, at the age of 17.5 I was 186 cm tall, since 22.5 I started going to the gym, I did not lift any super weights. Max 50 kg squats x4 once a week (as far as these exercises are concerned), I exercised maybe until 23 with half a year breaks, in winter I practiced cross-country skiing (since 17 years). I was also pulling myself up on a bar. Currently I’m 190-191 cm, weigh 95 (I have very big thighs, hence the weight). I would like to add that I didn’t smoke or drink until I was 23. Greetings!

Alan Rybczyński

Hi Michael. At 22,5 years old you rather have already reached your final height. Therefore, the gym was unlikely to have any effect on your height.

Danty

Hello is it possible to grow 6-7 cm at the age of 31?

Alan Rybczyński

At this age, you can stretch your spine a bit. Method two – you can also theoretically grow a few inches without needing surgery, but the ways are experimental and you can damage your joints this way. I assume you have no medical knowledge. Limb lengthening surgery also remains.

janosik

Hello

The correct height is given in the morning, evening or during the day ?

Alan Rybczyński

Hi. Every height measurement is correct, although the closest to the truth is the averaged result. Over the course of several hours, our height decreases to the final evening result, so we remain lower for most of the day than we were the morning after we woke up. However, if you want to measure your growing progress, pick one hour and stick to it.

Kamil

Hi. My name is Kamil and I’m 178 cm tall. My dad is 179 and my mom is 168. In 4 months I will be 18. I started to grow quite late like my dad. Is there a chance that my height will be over 180cm? Greetings

Alan Rybczyński

Hi, I think you still have a chance to grow at least 5 centimeters. You haven’t reached your full potential yet. Good luck!

Ola

My name is Ola, I am 16 years old and 155 cm tall, can I still grow?

Alan Rybczyński

You should first take an x-ray of your wrist to determine if the epiphyseal cartilage is ossified. If not, chances are you have actual bone growth.

Karol

Alan Rybczyński

Kacper

Our height is about 158 cm.

Alan Rybczyński

You have a chance at 175 cm.

Maj

Son is 15 years old and 6m, height 174cm. I am 174 cm, my husband is 178 cm. My son has just started puberty (I also went through puberty very late, at the age of 16), and he has severe growth pains in and around his knees. What is the chance that he will grow 10cm in a year and if it is possible that he will reach a height of 190-195 cm eventually?

Alan Rybczyński

With his genetic abilities, 185 cm is attainable. How much it will be in the end, or more and how fast – even a team of doctors cannot really determine/predict this. It depends on many factors that change during adolescence, which are not always within your control. Eating habits, physical activity, exercise and other things should be used to your advantage as soon as possible.

Kamil

Hello,

I would have a question in this area. Unfortunately I have depression related to my height (175/176 cm at 70/72 kg). My current age is almost 22, I have chronic pancreatic disease diagnosed only six months ago. After I started taking pancreatic enzymes I gained about 20 kg (before that I weighed about 50 kg). Unfortunately I didn’t keep measurements of my height, so I would like to ask you if there is a chance for me to grow taller before the disease was diagnosed when my height didn’t change for about 5 years and then I noticed changes in my body? I would also like to mention the chronic pains in my tibias which doctors believe to be a result of late growth (I would dream of being 186, probably unrealistic unless I undergo the latest surgery with PRECISE intramedullary nails). Is at least getting to a height of 180 in my case realistic with bone microfracture exercises (described in your e-book where you managed to increase bone length by over 6cm in 5 months) and trying growth hormone boosting with an endocrinologist?

Alan Rybczyński

Hello

You need to think about the cause of depression. It is certainly not growth. Perhaps problems of private nature and you are looking for reasons in height. 176cm is a decent average height for normal functioning in society. I’m not going to play psychologist, so back to the topic. You need to check your bone age with an x-ray. Personally, I would recommend you the standard program for growth described in the ebook, because as you write, you are still growing. At what time and how much you will gain – no one knows. It is better to appreciate every centimeter.

Adrian

Hello,

My daughter at the age of about 9 was 136cm tall now she is 13 and is 159cm.

So in 5 years she grew those 25 cm and from that from last 3 years only 3 cm.

Is 25 cm during these years a lot and is it possible that she stopped growing?

She wants to be 167/170

(Me 173, wife 165)

Alan Rybczyński

Hi. Genetic predisposition is about 163 cm. Your daughter is still about 3 years old, and with the right knowledge, you can much more easily achieve a higher height. It is worth to use it and try to do what in your power to make the child grow a few more centimeters. It is impossible to say how much this will be, but accelerating growth is very feasible.

bartek

I am a male, 170 cm and I am 17 years old. Do I have a maximum height when I reach 21 or 25 years old?

Alan Rybczyński

In most cases, males grow up to 21 years of age.

rafał

Hello, I have a son who is 16 years old and he is 156 years old, is there a chance that he will grow up again?

My dad is 185cm my mom is 165cm

Alan Rybczyński

Hello

Everything is fine with your height. You’re only 14 years old and a good few years to grow, since you’re already 181cm. Genetic potential in your case is theoretically 181cm, but you can easily get to 190cm, thanks to the young age.

Hi, I’m 15.5 years old and 163 tall, my mom is 156, my dad is 170, I played a lot of soccer and I still do a lot of sports, but my height is still stagnant, is there any chance that I will grow to at least 175?

Please help and best regards

Alan Rybczyński

Hello

I think at such a young age, 10cm is achievable. It is worth doing everything you can to be taller as an adult. These centimeters will stay with you for life.

Alicja

Hello,

My daughter (Julka) is 14 years old and 159 (I’m 166 and my husband is 174).

Julka would like to be 170 but I’m afraid it’s not possible because she grew less than 2 cm in the last year.

Is there any possibility that in a few years she will grow another 10 cm?

Alan Rybczyński

Hello,

daughter’s genetic growth potential is around 163cm. She still has 2-3 years to grow up. With appropriate interventions, the potential written in the DNA can be increased.

Szymon Ociepa

Hello, I am 16.5 years old, I lead a healthy lifestyle, diet and play basketball. I’m 187 cm tall, my parents are 179 and 159, so I probably inherited the height from my grandfather, who was even taller than me, but he smoked cigarettes from an early age. I would like to point out that over the last six months I’ve grown 2.5 cm, is there any way I could grow another 15 cm? I wanted to ask about the most radical measures that will help me achieve this goal. Please help and best regards.

Alan Rybczyński

You can increase your height, but genetics are important if you were to reach 200 cm. You can forget about growth hormone, no doctor will prescribe it in this case. In the ebook I have included various safe and natural methods for growing taller, but there are no radical methods, which are a bit risky for adults after the growth period. I wish you success!

zxcv

In the other direction, is it somehow possible to stop or even reduce growth at 17-18?

Alan Rybczyński

You can try by lowering testosterone levels, increasing estrogen levels, lowering growth hormone.

Jakub

Hello, I am 17 years old and 168 cm. I am very similar to my father (183 cm) in terms of body build and hair (chest, belly). From what I’ve heard my father also grew quite late, but I’m curious about one thing that recently appeared – hair started to appear on my chin and sideburns (small, some black, some blond) and I wanted to ask if this fact can prevent me from growing or is it a sign of finished growing? I am an only child + 2 weeks ago I checked my bone age and the result was that I can grow for about 9 more months.

Greetings

Alan Rybczyński

Hi. The testosterone responsible for facial hair doesn’t interfere with growth, in fact the opposite. So no worries.

Krystian

Hello I am 16 years old and 170 cm tall . My mom is 163 and my dad is 176 . My dream is to grow to 190 cm. My question is: Is there a chance that I could grow that much? If so, what should I do to make it happen? I can do anything. Please help me.

Alan Rybczyński

I can’t answer precisely. There are many factors of growth. In favor is young age. Visit the FAQ section.

Viki

I am a girl I am 15 years old and 168cm tall. Mom 163cm, Father 185cm. I got into an eating disorder about a year ago and I think I’ve put it on hold. I really want to be at least 172cm or is there still a chance that I can grow?

Alan Rybczyński

I think despite genetics, a few inches is still possible to gain. Check your bone age first and foremost.

Krzysztof

Hello, I am 18 years old and 170cm. I am taller than my mom by half a head and my dad is around 180cm, my brothers are of similar height to each other and to my dad. Question is how much more can I grow and how long will it take and how much height can I gain in a year?

Hello I am 14 years old and 2 months old 180cm 60kg parents mom 165 dad 185 I would like to reach 190cm is there any chance?

Alan Rybczyński

Hello, at the age of 14, of course. It is practically certain that you will still grow. Men usually grow until the age of 18, and sometimes even until 21. Therefore, you still have plenty of time for natural bone growth. If you notice a growth inhibition before you are satisfied, start implementing the Growth Program.

Matusz

Hello, I have a question: can I grow to 180 or 178 at the age of 18 when I’m 173 cm tall? I’m a boy, my dad is 180 and my mom is 168. My dad was the same, but in the 3rd grade of high school he grew from 170 to 180. Is it possible if so, what is the best way to grow?

Alan Rybczyński

You have the predisposition to grow a few more inches, but take advantage of the last moments and start a program for growth.

Georg

Hello, I am 28 years old and 177 cm, I would like to ask myself if it is possible to grow at least 1-2, preferably 3 centimeters without the need for microfractures and if there are any known ways to do it

Alan Rybczyński

Working to straighten the spine in this case is the only method if you want to avoid microfractures.

Krzysztof

Hello, I am 28 years old, heavy experience and only 163 cm tall. I dream about height approx. 180-190 cm. Is it still possible at my age?

Alan Rybczyński

Hello.

Rather, at that age, a miracle would have to happen. 17 centimeters is a whole body remodeling.

Alan Rybczyński

Hello,

With non-invasive natural methods, every inch is difficult to achieve. The results may not be as huge as we would like.

Szymon Ociepa

Hi, I’m 16 years old, 186 cm tall, and I would like to grow as much as possible. What factors can I introduce into my lifestyle to achieve the best results? How can I work on it? And what results can I achieve with it?

Alan Rybczyński

Simon, I write about all of this on the blog and in the e-book. In a nutshell the most important things are: diet, sports, exercise, sleep.

Ewelina

Mom is 167 tall and Dad is 180 tall thank you and regards.

Julia

Hello, I turned 15 a few days ago and I’m 156 cm tall, my mom is 164 cm and my dad is 177 cm. How much more do I have a chance to grow? Will I have at least as much as my mom? I’d like to add that I’ve grown 2 cm in the last six months, is it a lot (for my age)?

Alan Rybczyński

Hi. You still have about a year to grow. It is impossible to estimate exactly how much you will grow, but every centimeter gained makes a big difference. The statistical average growth at this age is about 6-7 cm/year.

Ewa

Good morning

My son is 16 years old and the bone scan showed that his bone age is about the same

My son is 147, does he still have a chance to grow a few centimeters

Alan Rybczyński

Of course, your son still has a chance to grow. Men have the potential to grow up to the age of 21, except that the earlier he started acting, the more he could grow. Good luck!

Piotr

Hello I am 26 years old in one year I have grown 2 cm 188 I currently have is this normal?

Alan Rybczyński

It happens. If it’s not related to pituitary disease, you have a delayed bone age, and these are the last “wisps” of growth.

Sebastian

How did you just grow Peter being an adult ?

Filip

Hi I have a question, if I am 16 years old and 180 cm tall, do I have a chance to grow 10 cm more ? My father was 187 and my mother 164

Alan Rybczyński

Hi. I think the chance to grow is still there. Young age and not bad genes are working in your favor. You have such a best 2-3 years left to take advantage of it.

Zbigniew

Hi. I am 15 years old and 186 cm tall, is there any way to stop the growth? I haven’t grown anything for the last few months and for the last two months about 3 cm…. or when can I expect a significant reduction in growth rate?

Alan Rybczyński

Hi. I would recommend going to an endocrinologist who could possibly guide some therapy.

Hubert

Hello, I am 14 years and 5 months old and 160 cm. I am not short but I have complexes. My bone age is 16-16,5 years. The doctor said that because of this I will grow much worse than I should. I have no desire to live with a height of 162-163 cm. It will be a tragedy.

Can I grow another 15 cm or so by the age of 18.

My dad is 168 my mom 160 my grandparents 175, 172 my grandmothers each 153 I would like to be as tall as my dad at the end of eighth grade.

Is that also possible?

Darian

Hello, I’m 17 years old in 2.5 months and I’m 171 years old. I’d like to buy the e-book and I’d like to know how much I’ll grow more or less after using the methods from the e-book. My parents’ height is Mom 162 and Dad 164. I have grown 4 cm since I was 16. My height over the years are: 16-167 cm 15-162.5 cm 14-156 cm 13-148.5 12-141.5 cm I’ve been taking MK-677(ibutamoren) for 2 months now, will it prevent or help my growth? Is it possible to grow 5 cm to 25 cm and if not, how much more could I grow?

Alan Rybczyński

5 centimeters at this age is a realistic result. How much you will grow – it is impossible to predict. I don’t know what effect this supplement has on your body and if it actually stimulates HGH. You would need to do blood tests. In my program I recommend natural ways to increase growth hormone. There are a very large number of methods for this. Just a simple “breathing session” can increase growth hormone 10 times (research). I don’t understand why to look for help in pills for everything.5 centimeters at this age is a realistic result.

Hello.

My 14 year old daughter is only 144cm at the moment.

I am 149 cm short and my husband is 168 cm.

In terms of growth hormone tests, everything is fine. How can I help my daughter to grow as much as possible. Maybe some special exercises for growth and vitamins. Please give me advice and answer.

I found on SFD.pl

I found a topic in which some people have grown 2-4cm as adults thanks to growth hormone. One person grew 2.5cm between the ages of 26-28.

Alan Rybczyński

According to medicine, it is impossible to grow at this age. The only way to lengthen the compacted bone then is fracture or microfracture. Read about acromegaly is why growth hormone is not prescribed to adults.

Marek

Good day. I just finished a month ago and am about 183cm tall. Do you think that I will grow at least to 186? My dream is 188, but over the course of 15-16 years I grew about 2-3cm. Regards

Your parents’ height and your age are important.

Kuba

Hello my name is Kuba and in 3 weeks I will be 13 years old and I’m 164 cm tall my mom is about 156 cm and my dad is about 172 cm how much more can I grow? And do I have a good height for now because I’m not growing that 3 months already

Alan Rybczyński

I replied to you by email.

Kuba

Hi. All in all I’ll start from the beginning so I’m 14 years old at the end of May 15 my dad is +/- 190 cm, my brothers 190 cm, the youngest is about 195 cm, my mom 168 cm, most of the family on my dad’s side are big guys (one is 216 but he has gigantism) I play basketball professionally and I plan to make a living from it in the future the problem is my height… I’m not short because I’m 178cm and I would be happy if I grew 10-12 cm since last year, but I barely grew 4 cm… 🙁 I’m afraid that God forbid I won’t grow at all, and then my basketball career will fail, which will be the worst nightmare for me. I don’t know how much truth there is to this, but my brothers just started growing in high school. On top of that Markelle Flutz a very respected basketball player today was 175 cm at the age of 16 no one wanted him and they didn’t see the potential in him until suddenly he grew to 192 cm and today they chose him with the 1 number to the NBA. I would like to grow to 185 cm before the vacations, is it possible?

Alan Rybczyński

Hi Kuba. At the age of 15, you still have a good chance of reaching your desired height. Men usually stop growing between the ages of 17 and 21. You will grow the most by the age of 17, so the sooner you start working on it, the better.

Bartek

Does drinking Muszynianka water stop the growth? It is carbonated water, so I don’t know whether to drink it or not?

Alan Rybczyński

Drinking such water will not stop growth. Nevertheless, still water is the healthiest for the body.

ERYK

I’m 16 years old, 70kg weight, 168 height, I’ll probably only grow up because I haven’t had the mutation yet, my shoulders aren’t wide and I still have a lump in my nipple, my friends say they had it too, can I irritate it yet?

Alan Rybczyński

As much as possible, you still have time to grow up. Take care of your diet, sports, sleep and other growth factors that I described in the e-book.

Jankowiak

Is it possible to grow at age 40 , 3 cm . I have a question

Alan Rybczyński

It is possible, but it requires proper action. First of all, take care of the spine, because there you can regain even 3 cm of height. There are such extreme cases in people just at a similar age. Secondly, microfracture the bones, which is unfortunately risky in home conditions. Thirdly, I always recommend to simply take care of the clothes. Monochromatic colors optically lengthen the silhouette of a person. Additionally, you can resign from men’s shoes with a very low heel. It is worth buying insoles to gain an extra centimeter 🙂

anna

I am almost 17 years old and 168 I used to smoke cigarettes out of my own stupidity but not too much, I try to stretch every day and eat healthy. I would like to grow to 170. Is it still possible? Have I done anything by myself with a healthy diet, exercises and stretching?

Bernadetta

I am after a severe illness, after chemotherapy, as a result of which I have hypopituitarism and now 153 cm tall. I am now 18 years old. I was also given growth hormone for about 2 years. Is there anything else that can be done to make me grow?

Alan Rybczyński

It depends on your bone age and the level of growth hormone in your blood. Your doctor should first of all assess your bone age and whether the cartilage of your bones has already come together.

Kamil

I am 170 height 56 kg (18 years old) and cartilage bone assessed at 19 years old. Do I have a chance to grow up with your e-book? If yes how many cm?

Alan Rybczyński

It’s impossible to say so precisely. I think up to 4 cm is possible depending on what you do and with what determination.

Bayl

Hello,

Is it possible to gain 3.5 cm within 15 months? Of course with at least 8 hours of sleep, a diet rich in dairy, vitamins (additionally I’m going to try tranium), stretching exercises?

Alan Rybczyński

Depends on what age, but generally yes, it is possible.

Bambi

Hello,

You write that microfractures are possible without surgery, but can they be done independently without any surgical intervention ?

Alan Rybczyński

Yes, but these methods are nevertheless risky.

Kinga

Is it possible that at the age of 20 I’ve grown 1 cm, since I’ve been measuring my height for about 5 years and it was always the same (177cm) at different nurses and doctors? Please, answer me and thank you in advance

Alan Rybczyński

Yes, as stated on the tips and FAQ page. Keep in mind that determination and regularity are important.

Ann

Good morning!

Very informative article.

Like others, I also have a question about my height.

I’m 23 years old (female) and 151 cm. My mom is 153 and my dad is 175. At the age of 15 my growth stopped. From about 11 to 15 years old I grew only 3 cm. During my childhood, due to an extreme overdose of vitamin D (doctor’s fault) I didn’t grow anything for 2 years. I am a grown woman and I look like a girl at the beginning of puberty – short, pimples on my face, still irregular periods.

Is it possible for me to grow a little more without surgery? For example, through exercise? My height is probably the most unlucky one – growth hormone is given to people up to 150 cm. I’m 1 cm over…

Alan Rybczyński

Hi. Thank you.

Growth hormone is not given at this age primarily. Take a look at the new tab: https://growtaller.blog/faq-frequently-asked-questions/

Ann

Yes, I know they don’t give it then.

My mother tried to get the treatment for me when I was 14 years old, but the doctor refused, saying that “my mother will outgrow me, there is nothing to worry about”. (I have not).

I’m more concerned about whether, considering the above, there is still a chance for me to grow somehow?

Magdalena

Hello, I will soon be 18 years old, I am about 155 cm tall. When I was younger I was offered to be put on growth hormone because I was found to be deficient, unfortunately my parents decided against it. Is there still a chance to apply for a refund?

Alan Rybczyński

I don’t follow the reimbursement topic on a regular basis, so I would rather recommend seeing an endocrinologist. You will need an x-ray of your wrist to see if the bony epiphyses are already fused.

Piotr

Hi I am 20 years old .Height 177 cm is it possible to grow to 180 cm ?

Alan Rybczyński

Hi. Most likely yes 🙂

Mateusz

How tall were you on your 19th birthday ?

Wolf

Hello, how long can it take to stretch my spine by these 1-3cm?

I’m 167 and 17 and would like to be something around 169 by September.

Alan Rybczyński

At your age, spinal stretching is one of several methods. It is worth investing in a growth program for at least 3 months. New things, exercises, etc. are just being learned by making mistakes, and it’s even more pointless to expect results after a week. Most things in life don’t come easy, but it pays to work for them.

Nikola

Can I still grow when I’m 17? I’m 156 cm tall, which is a big problem I’ve had for a long time. Doctors always said I had nothing to do with my height and that it was normal. My mom is 165 and my dad is 175, although my grandma is short but she’s shorter than me. I’m a preemie and I was 20 cm shorter. I was born 3 months early. My twin sister is 154.

Alan Rybczyński

Your genetic potential is 163 cm, which you haven’t achieved yet unfortunately. Analyze your diet, physical activity and sleep. Check your bone age with an x-ray from your doctor. If your bones are still growing, you still have the last time to grow. Greetings 🙂

Lukas

Hey Alan would it be possible to grow 10 cm at 16 years old? And what do you think about jordan the way he grew?

Alan Rybczyński

Hey Luke! I think 16 is still a young age and there is still a lot you can do with your height. Of course genetics is important as it is responsible for 60-80% of growth, but it is often overestimated. Epigenetic factors are an action that you can do yourself. Act and write how it goes.

Michał

I am 15 years old, 170cm.What vitamins to take to help my growth. Could I take it despite having good gh levels. What do you think about pituitary stimulation from yt?

Alan Rybczyński

Hi,

There is no need to over stimulate the pituitary gland.

As for vitamins, you can either get them from your diet or additionally from supplements. I do not recommend taking vitamins of synthetic origin, and such are the cheapest and widely available. The basic vitamins you need to take care of when supporting growth are: D, K, K2, A, C. In the ebook “How to grow – no rubbish” you will find a list of foods that provide the largest amounts of a particular vitamin and the need and role in growth. Additionally, don’t forget about minerals. Good luck!

Monika

Hello

Is there anything else I can do at the age of 16 to grow? I’ll add that I’m 16 years old and 151 cm, I do not grow, somehow, until the 5th-6th grade, and I’m almost in the 2nd grade of high school.

Alan Rybczyński

Hello,

Get an x-ray of your wrist to determine the bone age and whether the bones still have a chance to grow. If so, use a program for growth. You may be able to achieve a few more inches.

Sebastian

Are there any cases that people grew a few centimeters after they turned 21?

Alan Rybczyński

Dry growth stories are more commonly reported. The problem is that not everyone who has grown wants to share it and put good documentation on the web. I found a few cases where the method worked but it’s not clear how old the person is (only known to be around 20).

Sebastian

Is 177cm tall a short height? Because I have complexes because of it and I don’t know how to get rid of them at all.

Alan Rybczyński

You fit in the height – above average range. Comparing yourself to others will constantly make you feel bad.

Iwona

Hello !!!When I was 15 years old I was 170cm until I was 18 years old !!!In the fourth grade 171 cm !!!!When I was 24 years old my height was still 171cmI haven’t measured myself since then but I noticed that I am now taller than my friends and I used to be shorter !!! I measured myself and I am 174cm!!! I grew after 24 years of age!!!is it normal?

Alan Rybczyński

Hello

These types of cases are very rare, especially in women. It looks like you had low bone age, open epiphyseal cartilages and high amount of growth hormone. You didn’t write anything about your lifestyle. If you played sports, all the more reason to grow taller.

Adrian

Hello, I am turning 17 next month. It is already the last whistle.

On February 13, I’m still going to the endocrinologist for more advice and to rule out the possibility of some disease.

I’m a boy, I’m 165 tall, my mother is 153, my father is 167. The rest of my family is tall, my grandmother is very tall, my uncles from both sides, cousins and other family. I don’t have high expectations, 170 would be ok and I wouldn’t complain, and every extra mm would be a great bonus 🙂 Would I be able to achieve such result by the age of 20 if I followed all the advice? I would like to add that I am highly motivated and ready to make any attempts.

Regards.

Alan Rybczyński

In my opinion, it can be achieved at this age. Very much here depends on the amount of growth hormone and lifestyle. Stimulate its secretion and take care of the other factors now, as early as possible.

Artur

Hello, I just turned 16 and I am 177 cm and 78 kg in weight. My father is 183 cm and my mother is 158 cm.

Is there a chance that I will still jump up ? I want to play more volleyball and basketball, so I really want to get taller. Is there anything else I can do to help myself, maybe more protein, regular meals, less sweets, avoid coca cola etc. I drink more still water. Please give me some advice.

Alan Rybczyński

Hi. Of course there is a chance, you have at least 2-3 perfect years for it. I wouldn’t look so hard at genes, lifestyle is equally important. What you mentioned is ok. Don’t overdo it with protein, excess causes acidification and calcium loss. Make sure you have some vegetables and fruits in your diet. Try stretching exercises. Go to bed as early as possible – ideally at 10 pm. I recommend you to get my ebooks, especially the main one contains more methods. Everything described in detail. Best regards

Artur

What vegetables and fruits would you recommend I get and what daily portions should I eat ? I know that there are many topics on the internet, but could you make it easier for me and what about protein? When should I do stretching exercises and every how much, in warm days I will try to spend a lot of time outside playing basketball, football and cycling.

Regards.

Mateusz

I keep a diet I eat vegetables, fruits and meat I stretch myself I sleep 8-9 hours I go to bed at 10 p.m. I follow the guidelines and I have a question I work out in the gym, of course not with heavy weights because you can’t do that during the growth phase and because I can’t completely supply protein from products, I can take supplements, in my case whey protein isolate among others. I remind you that I’m 17 years old and I follow the advice, because I would like to grow a few more centimetres, but I don’t know if whey protein isolate can be taken in order not to stop growth (from what I’ve read it contains a small amount of lactose sugar and has about 90% protein in it), it speeds up metabolism and if you overdo it with taking it, you can acidify your body, but I won’t do that and when taking it you need to drink a lot of water

Alan Rybczyński

Of course, you can use whey protein to supplement your diet. It is a good choice. I wish you satisfactory results!

Marian

Hello

Is it worth starting growth hormone treatment at the age of 22 or is it too late?

Alan Rybczyński

In 99% of cases, unfortunately, it is too late, and it would probably be difficult to find a doctor who would conduct such therapy.

Artej

Hello! and I have a few days ago I turned 19 years old and 174 cm my parents are 175 and 170 cm and, for example, grandparents and uncles all much larger I do not know how much but I do not even reach the chin to them can I inherit height from grandparents? Can I catch up with them even if I am only 180 cm tall so I would be happy 😀

Alan Rybczyński

Hello, I would recommend that you get an x-ray done with your doctor and find out your bone age. If your bones have not fused together, you can still grow a few centimeters until you are about 21 years old.

Mateusz

Hello,

What do you advise when it is the last time 17 years I have sex: M and I have 174 and I would still like to grow at least to 177-8, parents 178 and 161 height, and one more thing I have a question if for 49 zl I have this whole package of 4 ebooks or one for 49 zł is it?

I know that it’s not my decision to grow and you can’t undo the growth etc. but I want to stop growing Can anyone help? It is important for me… I really don’t want to grow, I don’t like to be tall and I’m already a bit thin and what’s the idea that I’ll still grow until I’m 18, I’ll probably reach 185… no, I’m gonna kill myself

Alan Rybczyński

It is not known what this is related to in you. Go to your doctor who will order the appropriate tests. You may need hormone therapy to suppress growth.

Dr. Krzysztof

Ask your parents so that you can be tested. It may be normal if you have tall parents, but you may have hormonal problems, such as a pituitary problem. Greetings.

Sebastian

Björn, it’s just in your genes that you’re so old. Not many people grow up to be 25.

About 2 years ago I went for a bone age test and it indicated 18 years old. Is there any rescue for me yet? Greetings

Alan Rybczyński

Hi. Chances are always worth trying while there is still time, although this is the last call. Now probably your bone age is 20.

Sebastian

In your opinion, how much is the maximum you can get?

Piotr

Sebastian

Is it possible to grow by exercising with 5cm?I am 20.5 years old and 178cm tall,I am not complaining about my height.

Alan Rybczyński

The effects of exercise are individual and depend primarily on the amount of work you put into it. 1-3 cm is certainly possible. Above that it will be more difficult. 🙂

Kiro

Hi there, very interesting blog you are running. I have read so much that I want to buy the book :D. I have a question. I am 169.5 cm tall and I think that it is very little for a man. Do I have chances to be bigger at the age of 20?

Alan Rybczyński

With the right methods it is often possible to increase the height at this age by about 1-3cm. Before my 20s I grew 1cm unconsciously just by running (diet was terrible). What would happen if I tried to grow using today’s methods then 🙂

Magda

Hello, I’m 163/164 cm tall and I’m 15,5 years old. I would like to grow faster because I grow very slowly and I want to be tall. What can I do?

Hello, As a girl you should hurry up as there is not much time left. Take care of the most important growth factors: Sports and exercise, diet, sleep. If you want specifics read this blog. I provide a great deal of knowledge here free of charge. I also recommend the full knowledge in the ebook “How to Grow Taller”.

Reasilvia

Hello, very useful post, although not much written about height in women. I’ll be 17 in October, I know I’m still young, but I’m 167cm tall and I don’t know if my height hasn’t stood still, and I’d like to grow some more 3/4 cm, I don’t know how to do it, maybe drink more milk, exercise I don’t know… Maybe you know the answer to my “problem”. Thank you in advance. 🙂

alan

I’m glad you found it useful. Go hard as possible and make the most of your recent time. I give some of the basics as far as I can write down here.

A balanced diet, including enough complete protein; minerals: calcium, phosphorus, magnesium; vitamins: A, C, D, E, K.

Daily sport to stimulate growth hormone (fast running about 5-10 minutes is effective), daily stretching exercises but also wisely and not too long. Several exercises for legs and spinal muscles, in each several repetitions.

Sleep (preferably from 22:00) – 8 hours. The largest amounts of growth hormone are released during sleep.

Patryk
