Hi Daniela,

Welcome to HelathcareMagic Forum,
This can be told only after seeing your parents. That is because the height and weight of the body determined by the genetic make-up. If your parents are tall you will also be as tall as they are. If your growth is disproportionate to your age, sex and familial patterns then you need to consult a good endocrinologist for your problem.
Take care

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar
