As you are 20 years there is no possibility of increasing your height.
At about 20 yrs there is fusion of epiphysis of long bones with the bones so no chance of further gain in height.
Any way you take more high protein diet and exercises like running,jogging,rope jumping.
O k and bye.

Hi !!! I am 20 years old, I have 80 kg and I m 178 cm tall. I went to the gym for two last years, i have healthy diet ,rich in protein , but also in all other nutrients. A year ago I did an analysis of sex hormones and the results were good estradiol 37 pmol/L and testosterone 22.6 nmol/L ( 650 ng/nl ). Now(a year later) I did the analysis again, and the results were bad ,for my age ,in my opinion. Estradiol 82 pmol/L Testosterone and 10.97 nmol/L. I was also diagnosed with Hipospermia. I gained some fat around the stomach, and I think the reason for that are hormones. The problem is that my doctor says it s normal value, and do not think I need therapy . I think that the lowering of estrogen could help me to increase testosterone, but do not know how to accomplish that. And I have to mention the possible causes of this problem: At the beginning of this year I have injected 1100 mg testosterone enanthate : 350mg in first week, 250mg in the second and 500mg in third week. What do you recommend me to do.?
