Is It Possible To Grow Taller At 20? by Thazard: 3:54pm On May 21
This is a question that many have asked yet got no answer. So, I'm asking again.

I'm 5'3 inches tall at 20 years 5 months and I would like to be at least 6 feet tall. Is that possible at all?

Doctors and Nurses please reply. Also if you grew tall after 20, you can share your experience, diet etc

I feel your pain bruh grin grin. Anyway it's physiologically impossible as your epiphyseal bone plates have practically fused. You could add a few cm tho not much.

The end is near

How to survive the coming years?

-Go into farming

-Stop sinning

-Protect yourselves and your family

-Find an alternate means of shelter

- find a thick forest closer to you for refuge


I'm seriously serious

So many people won't expect what's going to happen next

Remember nobody is special

Well I'm 6'1 and I can say that I stopped growing at 22 years...I think you still have about 2 more years to have any noticeable changes height wise... I'll take a wild guess and say u could hit 5'6 or 5'7 by 23, but don't expect 6ft.

The answer is no. You won't grow any taller than your current height.

As someone has put it upthread, the part at the end of your long bones called the epiphysis, where most of your growing goes on during puberty has fused completely.

Also, height is wired into your genetic code, as well as nutrition to some extent. No one factor controls for height.

If you have the money though, your best hope is limb lenghtening surgery. (Used to increase height in people with a genetic predisposition to being short). This article gives more information.

But don't let your short height hold you back though. Life is life.

i doubt if one can grow taller at that age. major growth is between infancy and adolescence.

Hmmmm. Height!!

Some years ago, I asked my mom for the reason of my shortness. She told me that I did not pay "owo idagba soke". (Money for tall height). She assured me that I'll grow taller when I pay. grin That was how I saved part of my lunch time money in school. cheesy I gave her the money with all seriousness and she promised to take it to where my height will be adjusted. I was so happy. cool cheesy. I became confused when she used my money to buy dried fish for soup! shocked I was so angry. sad She later told dad about it and I became a laughing stock!!! cry Anytime I remember it, I will just smile. wink


Even when I started driving, police will stop me and ask..."How old are you"? "Kekere, you dey see front so? grin

Its possible, growing in heights stops at 25-26years of age. Unless ur height is hereditary.

Lols. Yhur "biggest fear should be being broke at 30".

There are things we can change and there are things we can't change about ourselves.

If yhu are meant to be tall even if yhu are above 20 yhu will be tall but if yhu are created short, yhu will be short my brother.

Free yhur heart from that fear young man. That's so unnecessary for now.

Just do yhu. After all, yhu didn't create yhurself. Yhu better start striving for success right now by putting yhur best into whatever yhu are into.
