    should my short 15 yr old seek HGH ?

    Would appreciate a medical expert view ...

    My daughter is 15 - is around 4ft - though very healthy and well-adjusted

    There are many 'grow taller' sites - e.g. exercise to stretch spine take optimum nutrients - are these 'believable' ??

    What are pros/cons of using HGH to increase height?

    many thanks for any advice

    Graham

    yes and tell your self to grow . Look in the mirror and tell your self to grow . You would be surprised at how you are the boss of your self . Swimming sounds like a good Idea also like S.A.M. said . I got know Idea if there truth in that but if you believe it your body may respond to the belief . Worth a try I would say and good for strength training too . Good exercise with out pounding your spine smaller like running does.

    My one step brother was a little guy and the doctors looked him over cause they family was starting to think he was going to be short and he needed to get use to the idea that that was it . Well low and behold the doctor said he was one of the few that not grow until later in life and could keep growing into his 20s. At 18 he was still a little guy . He grew up to about 25/26 and ended up at just under 6'. For us it was like " Can you believe that Doctor was right ? He was . Growth plates is how they tell and you might consider a doctor looking over your growth plates. I would not until you do mirror thing and tell your self to grow with conviction . Will your self to grow like a flower searching for the sun . Your the boss of you. Use it, boss your self . Wow I had no idea you were a tall girl . Oh wow aYeah . Sorry likey likey . Sorry . Ah stop it . Hold on I got to go boss my self with a cold shower . Take that body

    Nope. Just 57 kgs of soft tissue whose main purpose is to have babies, not move large amounts of metal. Lol, biology sucks.

    Ah yes, but you can be strong or weak. Being strong and fit can help you live a fuller, healthier life regardless of what you may choose to do.

    that's why I lift...Well, that plus I am a hyaenic little bitch and moving large amounts of metal just fulfils a certain primal 'don't fuck with me' instinct.

    I am always prepared to upgrade my durability when I level up.

    For the first part of your life you can build yourself up if you try. After a certain point it becomes very much more difficult to do that and you begin to maintain the gains you previously won - if you continue your efforts - rather than improve.

    It is my perception that you then enter a long slow slide as you age. Folks like LaLane fight the good fight and go down swinging at a ripe old age, still relatively healthy right up to the end when something takes them out all of a sudden - whack!

    Others (like my mom) crap out early and end up sitting in a wheel chair on a couple dozen meds for a decade before they check out, due to not making any effort to be as much as they can be. :shrug:

    Can't be avoided, but can be dealt with.

    Strength not only develops in the muscles but also in your mind so always keep learning and you will always keep getting stronger. A strong body can move a wheelbarrow but a strong mind can move a mountain.

    A strong mind can also mean a stronger body.

    You have to be mentally strong, you have to "play until the whistle blows" and also give it 110% percent in your workouts. Keep on pushing until you have no more left in you and then some.

    You can gain muscle tissue into your 90's, but it takes an ever - increasing amount of effort to do so - more work for less result. Most of us don't put out the extra effort as we go along, so we slide.

    There is much to be gained from dedicating yourself to developing and keeping a healthy lifestyle, however. You reduce your chances of developing a bunch of nasty, age - related stuff including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, heart attack, stroke, type 2 diabetes and cancer. You also avoid that long wasting - away decrepitude that many seniors end up in...."stumble in the gloom of the sick room, and talk to yourself 'till you die.."

    Again - I have had the great pleasure of knowing many persons who attained ages in the 90's and were still fit, relatively healthy and strong. This due to their dedicated daily workouts and healthy lifestyle choices. This is motivation for me to get in a few hours of serious exercise every day, to watch my diet, stay flexible and get sufficient rest. I look and move maybe 10 - 15 years younger than my age as a direct result.
