Hello there..... I can understand your concern....Height is genetically determined.... once you're done growing, that's pretty much it. Men grow height-wise until 21 years old, although depending on the person they may experience slight changes until 25. In their later twenties, you're already not producing the regul ar pulsatile bursts of growth hormone needed to stimulate longitudinal growth, but if an exogenous source is provided, the growth region of the bone known as the epiphyseal plate has already shut down, so you'd only grow laterally.....
