Can thyroid hormones or thyroxine increase your height?
The truth is that being hypothyroid – which is having low levels of thyroid hormones – has been linked to shorter stature.
Ideally, you would like to have your thyroid hormones in the upper normal range – not just under the normal range.
If you want to increase your height and you are still growing – check your thyroid hormones.
The other thing you want to do – is to lower estrogen levels – since estrogen had been linked to the closing of the bone structure, which can inhibit growth and keep you shorter than you could actually grow.
Growth hormone is also very important.
If you are a teenager, make sure your thyroid levels are optimal, and you are having enough sleep and optimal nutrition in order to maximize your growth potential.
