How to increase height of a girl child?

Hello My daughter is 10 years and 7 months old. She s 141cm tall. Our doctor tells us that she ll have her first menstruation this year and anticipates that she ll eventually reach 150cm which is fairly short. Are there nutrition supplements to help her growth taller.I hear that Niacin in particular can icrease growth hormone production.Thanks for your advice

Hello!

Understanding your concern. As per your query you want to increase height for your daughter which is 141 cm tall, well height of a person increases by the time epiphyseal plates in the long bones don't fuse and these plates ideally fuse around 21 years of age. As she is close to 10.5 years old chances of growth are very there. Once these plates fuse then there is no further growth. I would suggest you to use shoe lifts and maintain good posture. You should take healthy diet such as protein rich diet like soya, groundnut, pulses, etc. Do stretching exercises on daily basis.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
