If you are an adult, you cannot grow taller by any natural means. In some cases, painful and expensive surgery may (or many not) be able to help a little.

The maximum height you can reach as an adult depends on the height of your family (and adequate nutrition). Tall parents have tall children, as a rule. Children can maximise the height they will reach by eating a healthy well balanced diet with protein for growth and calcium and vitamin D for healthy bones and muscles.

Look around and see how tall your parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles are. If you are in your early teens and a girl you are probably as tall as you are going to get, most girls have slowed down by 16 and stopped growing by 18. If you are a boy, you may go on growing until you are 21. My older son stopped growing at 15 by which time he was 6 feet. My younger son who has always been shorter is still growing at nearly 17 and has reached 5'10" (has grown an inch in the last 6 months). My daughter stopped growing at 14 at 5'9".

If you are not an adult, very short in height and think that you may have some growing to do you can see an endocrinologist in case there is any hormone treament. There is an orthopaedic operation to lengthen leg bones, but it takes a long time, and it is very painful and expensive.

If you are not an adult, WikiAnswers cannot tell you how tall you will be when you are older. For more information about increasing height, see the page link, further down this page, listed under Related Questions.
To determine your stature in the future, how will these issues is important. Your ancestors.Type your food. Your physical activity.
