Brief Answer: Stretch exercises regularly Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query. I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through. Well, I get lot many patients with these complains in my OPD and they are certainly stressed with not able to increase the height. First you need to under stand some thing that the height a person attains is mostly decided right from the time a person is born, by his genetics. Height is mostly hereditary and a persons height is determined by the height of the father or mother. If none of them are taller than 5 feet 3 Inch then it is less likely that you will grow over that. Still some inches of growth is possible by taking some healthy steps which you should always try. Try taking a healthy food and never skip a break fast. Sleep adequately. Growth hormone is released at night in sleep and you should give sufficient time to sleep. Do regular exercise. Preferably stretching exercises like skipping, hanging from the bar or standing tall on ones toes. Also sports such as badminton and basketball also increases the height. Adequate weight control s essential to divert your energy to increase in height. All said, these habbits are good for a healthy life as well. You can try all of them regularly and just hope for the best. Dont fall for all the super natural remedies claiming to increase height in 2-3 weeks. Hope I am able to answer your concerns. If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you. If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.

Brief Answer: No injections to increase height Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the follow-up query. There are no injections or medicines to increase height. There are injections of growth hormone but they are effective in young age only if there is a deficiency of growth hormone. At age 19 they wont be effective and may even cause adverse effects. You can grow a few inches more at 19 years if you follow a regular exercise pattern but the medicines will not help you. Dont expect miracles. You may take the food which is having high protein content. You can take chicken or egg. There is no food which will hamper your height growth. Hope that was helpful. If you need any help do let me know, Kind regards Dr. Srikanth Reddy
