Hi, Thanks for using the HCM.
Usually we can grow taller till our bone's growing points(epiphysis) get completely fused to other part of bone. For girls it fuses usually by 13-16 years and boys till age of 21-23. In turner, its a genetic disorder and usually height ll be less. These products will have some high protein which will help to build your muscle. More ever growing taller requires genetic makeup, high energy food, hormones and exercise. So dont believe in all these products instead consult your doctor for further management. Infact for turner we do have hormonal therapy for growing taller but i cant tell at this age it helps you or not.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks get well soon....

Thanks for your query,
Usually at the age of 18 years our bone's epiphysis with hypophysis fuses together in long bones so it stops growing.
