    I'm 18 and was just wondering when do you stop growing?

    I'm 6ft 8 and approaching 6ft 9 which is starting to worry me.

    I was 6ft 4 when I was 16! so that's 4 inches in 2 years!

    Luckily my huge feet seem to have maintained the same size since I've been 17, it's annoying and costly to find shoes!
    :p:

    Lulz, you should go to your GP to find out if you have acromegalic gigantism. If you keep growing, you might just become the world's talest man! :zomg:

    Acromegalic Gigantism, Don't worry all my glands are functioning correctly and no over producing anything.

    I think it's Just genetics.

    I am peev'd at banging my head lot, the oh your a giant comment and people wanting to wear my shoes.

    I'm also sick of paying like £70 for a pair of trainers that someone else got in like Size 9 for £20

    Grrrr!

    Wooooow, oh my! I haven't grown in height since about Year 6 or 7, hahaha, I went from being really lanky compared to everyone else my age to being shorter than a lot of my friends as they overtook me I think I just have a lot of tall friends though...

    Yeah, in year 5/6 i was quite tall for my age, but i did hang around with a lot of small people which wasnt really good for my self esteem - i felt like a giant.
    Now i'm glad everyones outgrown me, 5"6 isnt a bad height.

    Still, this thread would be entirely different if the OP was female, haha.

    It varies, but I think guys usually stop growing at about 17-20 years old.

    I've been the same height for about 1 and a 1/2 years or so.
    Im happy with the 5'8" of me

    I think males stop growing later than females though. 6'8" is pretty tall OP!
