There are pills and such to help you get taller, but there are symptoms and problems. I suggest you don't take'em. Do you just wanna get tall cz your insecure about your height?

As far as I know the only help for the short people of the world, of which I am one, is an extremely painful surgery to have your legs lengthened.

They break you legs and keep the bones pulled apart so that when the new bone forms, it fills in the empty space. OUCH!

I'm not sure how to get taller really... I guess you could use one of those torture things and stretch yourself out, though I highly doubt that'll help you any. I've been 6'2 since 7th grade, so I've never had to worry about it.

Oh yeah. I think it takes almost a year and you have to stay in a wheelchair for the whole time. You have to turn the pins at least once a day, so your bones don't heal up.
is right!

It used to just be for the 'little people' or whatever term we use now, but there are actually 'regular sized' people who pay good money for this. :shk:

Swimming makes you grow taller, as does playing basketball. But I think you have to be under 21 or so for it to work. A good balanced diet can only help.

Your parents are responsible for your height, I'm afraid


Exercise and diet can make your bones stronger and improve your posture, but nothing of this nature will actually make you taller than your genetics already dictate.

There are hormonal treatments available for those who are truly vertically-challenged, but these are not without their risks; there are also numerous "alternative" therapies which don't seem to have much evidence to back up their claims, and might actually be prime examples of scams.

I'm 5ft tall....and the only time my height really bothers me is when I'm stuck behind a "hat" or "hair-do" in the cinema.

And then I just mutter under my breath


Much as I hate platitudes and the like, it really is a case of "be happy with watcha got".

Tinkleflower is right, and there is a way to calculate your adult height (when your over 21 or so). Just take your dads hight plus your moms height divide by 2. Thats your height if your a girl, if your a guy, its the same forumla just add 3 inches after you have averaged your parents heights. This is usualy about 95% accurate to about an inch of your final height.

I'm sorry beyondSciFi but that doesn't work for me. My parents are 5 foot 8.5 and 5 foot 10.5 and using that method my final adult height would be 6 foot and half an inch. However, I am (at 15) already 6 foot 3 . I do do heaps of swimming, though.

I forget wazzits called.... HGH maybe. Human Growth Hormone. Its made in the pituiary gland. I think they manufacture it nowadays. you might even be able to get a NEW one inserted in your head or something, but that would # you up even more.. I wouldn't try it . Chances are its MORE dangerous than succesful. another thingy could be hypnotherapy.

The best comeback for when someone calls you "short".

You say "I'm compensating. " Lol hilarious. If get it. Only works if your a guy though, well actually you could say it if your a girl but... I mean its obvious if your a girl but... oh never mind! still though good joke. I use it occasionally.
