Being a polygenic trait, a person’s height is determined by genes to a significant extent. Apart from the genetic factors, height is also related to growth factor. It is a common belief that height gain halts when a person enters adulthood as the human body loses its natural ability to grow and develop.

The age of 18 is the transition stage between childhood and adulthood. During adolescent period, several hormonal changes take place within the human body. It indeed is good news that an individual can grow 2 to 6 inches taller even after turning 18. Scientists have discovered that the human body is capable to further grow and develop. Therefore, there is a possibility to increase height with some external help.

grow taller Normal Growth and Development:

It is very important to know about the normal human growth process before even delving into the methods of increasing height.

A baby measures about 20 inches at birth and will grow 10 inches to become 30 inches in one year. At two years, the child will be about 35 inches tall. From two to twelve years, the child will grow up to 2 to 2 and half inches every year. The growth spurt that happens in adolescents starts at eleven years for girls and thirteen years for boys. The pubertal growth lasts for two years and it is followed by sexual development. The hormones secreted during adolescence affects the growth to a great extent. The growth rate slows down around 16-18 years. This happens when the growing ends of the bones fuse.

Now, what does bone fusing mean? There is an epiphyseal plate at the end of each bone. Epiphyseal plate is a hyaline cartilage that is found in children and adolescents. In adults, the epiphyseal plate is replaced by an epiphyseal line since growth has stopped. Endochondral ossification is responsible for bone development from cartilage and longitudinal growth of long bones from epiphyseal plate. There is constant cell division by mitosis in the epiphyseal plate. The daughter cells stack faces the epiphyseal plate and the old cells push towards diaphysis.

After chondrocytes in the epiphyseal plate degenerate, osteoblasts ossify the remains and the new bone is formed. In adolescents, the rise in the levels of estrogen triggers increased apoptosis (programmed cell death) of chondrocytes in the epiphyseal plate.

The depletion chondrocytes due to apoptosis leads to less ossification and thus the growth slows down. Finally, the growth stops and the epiphyseal cartilage are replaced by a bone leaving behind a tiny epiphyseal scar which disappears. So once the person becomes an adult, the only way to increase height is by a process called distraction osteogenesis.

The height of adults depends on genes, the start of puberty and the duration and growth spurt during puberty.

Abnormal Growth Patterns and Reasons:

Sometimes there is variation in the growth pattern. Some children are taller than their age and some are shorter. Parents are always worried about their children’s growth. So for a better understanding, here are some reasons why abnormal growth takes place.

a. Poor Nutrition and System Dysfunction:

Nutritional deficiencies are a reason behind poor growth. A balanced diet with right amount of protein, calcium and calories is essential for holistic body growth. Due to intestinal diseases there is malabsorption of nutrients and this leads to nutritional deficiency and stunted growth. However, once the intestinal disorder is treated the child can grow again.

Diseases affecting the heart, lung and kidneys due to lack of nutrients and toxic buildup in the body can result in stunted growth.Children with diabetes also have growth failure if the blood sugar is not controlled. Sometimes, severe stress and emotional trauma can also affect growth.

b. Bone Disorders:

One reason for short height can be due to abnormal formation and growth of cartilage and bone. Children suffering from skeletal dysplasia or chondrodystrophy have short stature and abnormal body proportion. The causes for chondrodystrophy are not known and more research is going on to prove whether it happens due to genetic reasons or it is a result of biochemical reactions inside the body. The specific type of chondrodystrophy has to be identified using bone x-rays and physical examination.

c. Intrauterine Growth Retardation:

Some infants are small at birth, especially, if they happen to be premature. Some babies are small in size and have low birth weight than their gestational age. This is because the baby didn’t grow as much it should have inside the womb; this condition is called intrauterine growth retardation.

There are many causes behind this intrauterine growth retardation, some are not identified and thus it is difficult to treat this condition and the child stays short throughout his or her life. The growth retardation can happen due to problem in the placenta, which supplies nutrients and oxygen to the baby. It can be due to viral infection like measles during pregnancy that affects the growth of the child.

  • bong

    And fap also… Fapping will.release release hormones that enhances growth.

  • Brt

    Nonsense. It does nt even mention that the maturation of the epiphyseal growth plates in the bones is the main reason for growth height to stop. This usually happens at the end of puberty. The 1 tht giv most rise to your height is the distal femur epiphysis which will stop when the plate fuses. Although it true tht bone formation and deformation occurs through your life, doing all of the above will grant u stronger bones and make sure u dun shrink. Perhaps a few mm improvement in height bt a great increase is impossible

    hello, I am a girl and I was growing 1.5 cm a year until 2012. Then in 2013 i started dieting and I did not eat well nutrition and was on like the yo yo thingy. From then on I didn’t see any improvement in my height. Now I am nearly 19 and I started following these tips and been eating well and exercising. Is there still a chance for me to go from 5’3 160 cm to 5’4 163 cms ??? Thank you !!!!

  • Pradeep Ivon

    dear moni, your age is just like my daughter’s who also has been dieting for past few months and we are very concerned about her health also, we do not understand under what influence and on whose advise do young persons like you take to dieting at this young age which is not good and is against nature & God. I am very positive that there is surely chance for you to grow more if you really pledge and vow that you will follow the experts advice on food & health and will not object at all -simply follow the advice of your parents also as they always want you to develop fully in mind body & spirit!

  • Pradeep Ivon

    Do not diet & control your looks or body image let it develop naturally at this age of growing from teenage to youth, there is plenty of time later on in life for you to do the trimming or shaping, but diet restriction right now will be a non-reversible damage to your health & life given by God; do not reach such a stage from where it becomes too expensive or difficult for your well wishers to rescue you. For example when you have severe pain you take medicine or do you analyse the chemical formula and argue with doctor?

    Hi Larry, weight lifting is a completely safe way to strengthen your bones and increase your health. However, it needs to be done properly in order to reduce risk of injury. While proper weight lifting cannot stunt your growth or height, if you damage your growth plates during any activity you can negatively affect your natural growth. So, always take precautions. There are no negative consequences from weight training, unless you use improper techniques.

Eat a healthy diet of complex carbohydrates, fresh produce and plenty of protein. An 18-year-old should consume between 1,800 and 3,200 calories per day, depending on gender, size and activity levels. Consult your doctor for any medical assistance to improve height. Do exercises that improve your posture. Swimming, yoga, sprinting and bar hanging exercises help.
