Grow a bit tallerHello, I will be trying to first give you as much information about me as I can.
Age : 19 and a month
Race : Caucasian (white)
Country of origin : Romania
Sickness : chronic sinusitis
height : Almost 5.7' (169cm)
weight : 64kgs.
Haven't grown since 16 I think.
Parents height : 5.8; 5.5
Sister height : 6.2 or more
She has been doing sports since she was very young.
Not sure but I guess I should also speak about my personality since I've seen people are asked very personal questions when it comes to this type of medicine : I'm open minded, nice, calm, a bit cynical at the times, patient and my only insecurity is my height since apart from me, the shortest person I know is about 178.
Until the age of 17 I never did sports, one reason was my sickness and the poor quality of equipment available in my country and another was that I just became used to being lazy. I was over weight but now I am actually muscly and you can even see traces of a six pack on me.
I've become even more insecure since I've noticed how hard it is to live with a short height...especially when everybody is so shortsighted and judge people just by their appearence.
I have been insulted or denied things countless times thanks to my short height, it's even gotten to that old stereotype where girls who love me don't dare to date me because I am so short (just as tall as they are) that they look bad or their families dissaprove.
For the past year I have been working out and I even swam a few weeks during the summer and taking niacin on and off one month then a month break and so on.
I seem to be a bit taller or just leaner, but the thing is that I am not sure how this actually affects my body so I wanted to ask.
What medicine should I take? Is it even worth it? People say they even grow after the age of 20. And most of my uncles did that, but I don't want to just play it on luck.
Is there any medicine that can actually affect height increase after this age? Maybe make those spine bones grow and become tougher like when you do hanging exercises?
Will these exercises even work? About how much increase in height coul I see? 3cms? more? The perfect height for me would be 175, I have tried shoes insoles that add 5 cms one and I looked great in any clothes, even suits.
And how much time could it take until I saw any results? (if they are possible)
I know I sound incredibly obsessed with appearence, and I guess, on some level, I really am, but from what I've seen, if there is even a slight possibilty to do it, I want to do it, no matter how hard it is.
Please don't hesitate to answer me, be it with negative answers, positive, or even expensive stuff that normal people wouldn't bother with.
Note though, I don't want to go as far as surgery or hgh injections.
If there is anything else however, I highly appreciate it, thank you for the help and for reading this.
