Hello Sania, Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


I try to help answer.


To get good height measurement results, there are some things that must be considered, such as how to stand properly when measuring, the right measurement tool. For children who are able to stand or adults it is recommended to use the Microtoise measurement tool. The use of height measuring devices that use Microtoise with the meter sometimes have differences. Where the error rate is very minimal occurs in the Microtoise measuring instrument.


Besides having a minimal error rate, the use of Microtoise is also easier than the meter. Microtoise tool that is mounted on a wall or wall and has been mounted firmly, lowered or pulled up to touch the head (not just hair). Body position must also face forward, with a straight and upright view, not looking down or looking up, shoes and footwear also do not forget to be released. If you use a meter, it must require at least 1 other person to help measure it, and this can cause errors because the measurements are more difficult.


To help with height growth, the following things can be done:


1. Sports such as swimming, running, basketball, jumping rope.


2. Consumption of foods that contain lots of vitamin D and calcium


3. Avoid fast food, soft drinks.


Hope this helps, thank you.
