is it possible to grow about 4 inches?
im 5″11 and 17 yrs old, is it possible to grow about 4~5 inches?
My dad is over 6ft but my mum is probably only about 5″3, do those websites advertising growth secrets really work..?
since i’m 17 i should still be growing so.. hopefully.. i dunno, i was really thinking of buying some of that internet stuff.. is it safe? should i use it? any experiences?

Echoes what Xeno says. There’s no way to change your height. Believe me I’ve researched this. * Nikki says while standing in her tiny 5′0″ frame.
Blame my dirty mind, I always thought those spam mails with grow inches in days applied to a very specific part of the male body…
Growth hormones are really tough on the whole of your body and can even alter your personality while you use them. Better leave them for people that are extremely small. Or, if you really think you’re to small you could ask your doctor (I never can figure out these feet and inches you foreigners use, so I have no idea how tall you are).
Unless he wants to play basketball he seems tall enough for me, then. I know plenty of men that are 1.70 and I live in the country with the tallest people in the world (on average).
Sometimes smaller can come in handy, too. My current boyfriend is 1.98. I cannot kiss him unless he allows me to :-(
That seems silly! Heh, I’m only 1.524 meters. I dated a guy who was 6′7″, which is just over 2 meters. THAT was interesting.
I want to say that you’re at a great height. Is there any reason you want to be so tall? Some people don’t like really tall people. In fact, the heights that girls prefer most on average is 5′10″ - 6′0″. If you want to be six feet, just wait you’ll probably get there. You are probably not finished growing. If you still want to be taller some methods of stretching and surgeries can add about a half inch, but that’s it, not 4-5 inches. Sorry.
I am a Doctor’s office nurse, so maybe I can help youout from a medical angle. Everyone has what are called growth plates in the long bones of their bodied. As long as these are open you continue to grow. When they close, you are at your full height. There is nothing short of surgery that can change this, and that is a very risky procedure and I don’t know of any doctor that would perform that on a normal size, healthy young man. Growth hormones and other “potions” won’t change your height, but could cause permanant harm to your organs and normal function. Take my advice, don’t go there.
Im 13 turning 14 April n im 6′2 i play ball, hopefully ill be 6′7 i have NBA dreams…i hope it comes true!:P
I really believe you should wait i mean yoou are 17 and growing, dont hurt your body by taking any junk “to make you grow”. I wish you the best :)
Hi, my daughter is 4.8 1/2. Just been to doc and told her her growth plates were pretty much together. So does that mean she cant take those shots to make her grow? Doc said she might grow another 1/2 inch. When do you actually stop growing, forgot to ask all this stuff.
you’re only 17, of course you’ll grow more. most guys hit their last growth spurt from 17-24 but still grow a bit after that.
but i’m done growing at 5′7 D:
I hope u do grow taller cuz im 6 feet tall and 17. i want to be 6′4… and i hope im a late bloomer so i can get a growth spurt and reach 6′4 or at least 6′2-3. =d but yeah dude u will grow taler jsut wait and sleep early and eat right and exercise.
You could take supplements that contain amino acids which stimulate growth.
remember thing that stunt your growth are alcohol, cigarettes and caffinated products such as coffee and coca cola
oh and another factor that could delay growth is stress
Hey man, im 6″ and 15 years old. I want to grow to 6′4″, but i feel i need a miracle to do it. although i take calcium tablets, protein drinks, i sleep early, and pray. after reading some of these articles, im going to start taking a much bigger intake of amino acids. i hope you grow to your targeted height, i hope for you as much as me.
I doubt it man, your already 17.
if your lucky, you’ll get 1 inch
Of course you can grow taller after age 17.Eat plenty of protein ,get all your vitamins and minerals preferably from fresh fruits and vegetables(apart from those you get in meat that is),have no high carbohydrate intake after night,maintain a very active lifestyle,get plenty of sleep,and DON”T LIFT ANY WEIGHTS UNTIL YOU ARE 24 OR OLDER-allow your growth plates to remain open as long as possible.You could easily grow another 4″ inches if you are 5′11 and only 17,don’t give up and make sure to see your doctor regularly .The summer is also a great time for growing,you know ,lots of running,and jumping,and eating and sleeping.It’s also probably not a good idea to take any pharmaceauticals,you are a growing boy and messing with your hormones would be dangerous.
im 13 and im 4′10 =[ im rele short
I am 15, 5′1 and is it possible to grow 5 inches in a full year? By eating the right stuff,sleeping,excerisizing n all that?/
sleep,eat and swim
Sorry for the massive late reply but there is no scienctific evidence to make you grow taller.
By the way if you have grown email me at i> small>(email removed) /small> /i>
