Height Increase In Children Aged 13 Years?
good afternoon doctor u003cbr u003esy has a 13-year-old daughter currently tall 156.5 cm. father height 164 cm and mother 158 cm.
A person's height can be influenced by several factors, namely genetic (father and mother's height), nutrition, activities carried out, and gender. The age of your child is still 13 years old, so his height can still continue to increase with age. Height will be maximal and stop increasing at the end of puberty around the age of 19-21 years.
Height growth of each person can be different and can not be ascertained. As long as it can still increase, your child can do a healthy lifestyle to support his height. Some tips that can be done for example:
Eat healthy and nutritious foods, eat lots of fruit, and foods rich in vitamin D and calcium
Continue regular sports, for example swimming, biking, basketball, badminton
Get enough rest
Avoid cigarette smoke, caffeine, and alcohol
Supplements can be given sufficiently but not too much
Hope it helps you,
