I am 5"1 and 16. My short height in very embarrassing sometimes. I guess it is genetic as my mother is 5"1 too. But I desperately need to increase my height and I am ready to follow any effective treatment. Thankyou!

I can understand your concern.
you got genes from your father too so your father's height will also be a deciding factor as to how much you will grow.
anyways, you are just 16, and you will grow for another 3-4 years.
do not need to worry.

Consult an endocrinologist for growth hormone injection option medically.
However morally and ethically i suggest accept as you are..you are fine.Confidence comes from inner personality not from outward looks.
@ 16 you are 5.1 ft, its good.. You can not change genetics rather you can ornament yourself with kindness, by helping people.. you can embrass embrassment by your inner quality. All d best...
