Short in height, family, friends are much taller. How to increase height?
Hello Doctor, I am 22 years old male.My height is 5 4.My fathers and mothers height are 5 5 and 5 7 respectively. My brothers also have a height of 5 7. I would like to know whether there is way to increase my height. Please tell me if there is a solution as its kind of depressing and embarrassing to walk with family and friends who have more height.. Thanking you
Hi, Having height 5 4 is not bad height so do not feel depressed. After 20 years further increasing height is not possible due to fusion of epiphyses of long bones. If some body claims for increasing height, do not believe. Ok and take care.
