X-ray Examination Of The Growth Plate Or Growth Plate?
One way to find out if we can still increase our height or not is by checking the growth plates. So for that check, do we have to go to the doctor first and then take an X-ray or we can take an X-ray directly in a lab like Prodia, etc. thank you
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The growth plate is one of the parts found in long bones such as the bones that make up the thigh, calf, forearm and forearm and upper.
When a person grows tall, the part that extends from the bone is this growth plate. As one matures, this growth plate will slowly disappear and after that time, one can no longer grow taller. Growth plates are visible on X-rays, but if you want to see them, you'll need a doctor's help to show them.
But despite all that, in general, in males, the growth plate will remain until around the age of 21-22 years and in females it will remain until the age of 19-20 years. Knowing the presence of a growth plate also doesn't necessarily make you taller right away, so we don't recommend doing this check.
Instead of doing that, our advice if you are still in the age range that we conveyed, do more sports such as swimming, cycling, jumping rope and those that require you to jump or run such as basketball and football. Because in these sports more blood flow to the legs and bones so they have more nutrients. Talk about nutrition, also multiply foods rich in vitamin D and protein such as eggs, milk, yogurt, cheese, chicken, fish, tempeh, tofu, and other vegetables and fruits. Equipped with avoiding stress and getting a good night's sleep, you have maximized your growth potential, regardless of whether or not the growth plate is still present.
So, hopefully useful.
