How to become tall at the age of 16 years and there is no hair on body ?

16 year old male; worried about my height because both of my parents are very tall. My family is tall too. I get about seven hours of sleep on school nights; 9-11 in summer. I eat very cautiously with a ton of calcium, protein, vegetables, fruits, and even a multivitamin tablet. However, i dont have much hair on my armpits, legs, groins, chest , etc. Dad-6 2, Mom- 5 8. I m only 5 8 with big hands, feet, long arm and legs. Am i just a late bloomer?

welcome to Health Care Magic,
probably yes. just too early to be very upset about your growth. give it some more time & you sgould be able to rerach your adequate height. dont worry about it.

Thanks for query,
As your height is 5'8 and you are only 16 yrs so do not worry you will get your height more than your father !
Do some height risining exercise like cycling,running,jogging,rope jumping,swimming etc.
Hairs in groin,armpit etc will grow gradually.
Ok and bye.
