Short heightedness

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!

Hello There. 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. Best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain. Balaji clinic, Bangalore.

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.
