Growth Rates

Do the pills sold over the Internet really work and how much would they make a 16-year-old girl grow who is 5' and desperate to grow taller?

First, let's look at reasonable expectations. You can use your

mother's height as a gauge of your eventual full height. At 16, you

still have about 3 years to attain full stature. There are no pills

available by prescription or OTC that can accelerate of increase

your growth rate. While a balanced diet will help prevent any

deficiency states, further alteration of diet (as more protein)

will not affect your growth.
