  1. Hello Ritwik.
    Welcome to MediMetry.
    I can understand your concern.

    Generally height depends upon the genetic factors. I mean to say that a child's height is dependent on his parent's height, but it doesn't mean that you’ll suffer the same fate. Height is a polygenic trait, meaning that it’s influenced by a range of genes. If there are tall people in your family tree, chances are that the tall gene could be passed down to you. Height also depend on the type of diet you consumes.

    You don't need to worry about it, But you may follow some remedies:

    1) Do some stretch exercises.
    2) Eat healthy food and include vitamin D and calcium in your diet.
    3) Take protein rich diet like egg whites and chicken breast for healthy growth.
    4) Eat after every 3 hours of interval to keep metabolism running.
    5) Avoid junk and oily food because these food stops height growth.
    6) Play outdoor games.
    7) Have a good sleep.
    8) Rope Skipping.
    9) Go for running daily because it stretches all your muscles.
    10) Keep your posture proper.
    11) Drink at least 3-4 ltrs of water daily.

    Thanks for asking to MediMetry.
