Hi i' ve got a very random question. I' m 20 almost 21 year old male and would like to know if i' ve reached my full height? what age do your bones stop growing? Is there any medical test I can do to know?

Dear Dave

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

All your growth plates will have closed by now and therefore, you should not expect to get taller. You can have x-rays done to confirm the closure of the growth plates.

Kind regards
