Question
Hello, i am an eighteen years old and i have height issue. My height is 5.2 and i want to increase my height to 5.8 or 6.0. Please help me so that i can increase my height.

Answer
Hello, unfortunately unless there is a medical issue related to your height there is not anything you can do to change it.  I would suggest getting evaluated by an Endocrinologist to make sure that there is not an underlying issue that needs attention.

Thank you.
