As you are only 15years of age so you still have time for gaining height. In your case I believe balanced diet along with regular exercise and slightly more of proteins in diet will render desired results.

Hi,thanks for query.You still have some chance of increasing your height till you reach 18 years,in most of the cases when you attain puberty,which you have reached ,you can not increase your height much as the ends of long bones has stopped growing.Do regular exercise and take heathy diet ,which can help to certain extent.
wishing you good health.

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum

The maximum height you can attain depends on your genes, in short, max height of your parents ( uncles/brothers etc).
Now for growth one needs optimum nutrition, in the form of a diet; activity like swimming/tennis/badminton/basketball etc.

For max growth , homeopathic constitutional remedy also helps a lot. You can get in touch with a homeopathic physician, along with adapting the abv mentioned two .

Take care
