Taking a peptide and a aromatase inhibitor for linear height growth at 18?

I'm 18 years and 5'8 (my parents are 5'4 and 6 feet), I am considering taking GHRP-6 or CJC 1925 along with Arimidex to grow taller. The reason for taking both is that estrogen as I understand is responsible for closing your growth plates and by suppressing your bodies ability to produce estrogen you will in turn grow taller and by combining Arimidex with GHRP-6 or CJC 1925 I would be able to maximize my height potential by extending the time my growth plates are open and speed up the process of gaining that height by taking the peptide. I realize that I may be a little late and my growth plates may already be closed but I am a late bloomer and have been 5'8 since I was 15. I would love opinions on recommended doses and if what I will possibly do is even worth it.
Thanks in advance

Actually I have seen HGH used to assist Children who are short in growing.

Dosages vary and the treatment required is "usually" 6-12 months

Contrary to popular opinion, I have seen it work relatively well in several patients. .5" to 2" in height is common using growth hormone for such a period of time for Height. Cost is usually around $20,000 dollars and insurance rarely will cover it.

did you get x-rays to confirm your growth plates haven't closed?

I think I see what you're saying because estrogen makes your plates close, but being 5'4 at 18 makes me think they are closed already

Go for it. Run some mk too
I don't think that cycle will hurt you much and if you get what you want then bad ass. I ran mk for 14 months once, on and off with every peptide I could get my hands on . Hexarelin was interesting. Hex + dac + mk 677 was crazy

I also liked godtropin 240 a lot

And it doesn't matter if your growth plates are open or closed, that protocol won't do anything at all for you
I understand what you are saying, but do not agree could you please explain the reason for saying that whether or not my growth plates are closed the treatment will not help

I definitely agree and believe that some of my growth plates are closed, but since different growth plates close at different ages and some plates close at 20 years old on the high end of the average. Logic states that I still have room to grow there and by using the peptide I could theoretically milk every centimeter out of those plates

Because your not using the right stuff, the protocol you laid out won't do nothing. You can disagree all you want, just because you want to be right doesn't make you right.

Peptides are not going to do anything for you, at all

Instead of spending so much time and effort trying to science your way into being taller, I'd recommend working on the things you can more readily control that will ultimately benefit you in far greater ways than being 5'10"+.

Focus on your school work, figuring out what profession you think you'd enjoy spending the next 25+ years doing, and give it all you got to be the best candidate for a starting position.

Focus on being the best friend you can to those who are closest to you, cut out the people in your life that just bring negativity.

Turn off the TV and video games. Go out in the world and make memories with quality people.

Develop a relationship with God; if you already have a relationship with God, dedicate time every day to growing in your walk and faith.

Become the kind of person you would want to spend the rest of your life with, and don't settle for anyone who doesn't love you with the same level of commitment that you intend to dedicate to them.

I'm sure there are many guys and gals here that can give you even more wisdom than this, and I'd bet a number of them live very wonderful and fulfilling lives, regardless or in spite of whatever height they are.

I'm not saying don't try to improve yourself, I'm just saying that the items above will bring you true joy, and once you have all of those dialed in: neither you, nor anyone around you, will care about or even notice how tall you are.

I think it's worth trying, but I don't know what protocol to suggest, so I'd have to suggest seeing a doctor. wouldn't you just do HGH and try to keep your estrogen down to prevent plates closing?

That's what a Dr. Would do, for a younger child who's extremely small, the dude here is thinking that he can use peptides to replace gh and it's not even remotely close to the same. And I doubt many if any DR. Will try to do what he wants seeing how he's 5'8 which is the average height of a man.

Ya, the whole idea is nuts and going to cause more harm then good.

Peptides are not going to work, even if he can get real gh I don't know the doses that doctors use but I bet it's a high enough dose that you could give yourself acromegaly. On top of that you need to kill your estrogen which is going to make you feel horrible, your dick's going to stop working and your probably gonna have terrible joint pain all over.

You can't just take a bunch of stuff and play Dr., Well actually you can, but you have to be prepared for all the possible things that can go wrong. And with the way he's trying to do things listed above, I see no potential to grow taller and lots of potential to feel like crap and have a limp noodle

If you haven't grown any in 3 years, you're not going to get any taller now (regardless of the protocol).

At this point, only 2 things will make you taller:

Incredibly painful, debilitating surgery that would cut both of your legs in two, and graft them longer. But I doubt you will find a Dr. willing to do that to you. And I doubt you are willing to go through that long-term pain and recovery. .... And you probably don't have the pile of cash it would take to get that done.

The second thing is, you could take

.... yourself into a shoe store, and buy a pair of lifts.

This they give growth hormone to young children to aid them if they’re really behind.

No dog in this fight but I went from 5'5 at 18 to 5'9 at 20 years old naturally. It can happen

I mentioned the HGH protocols we used in the hospital and thus far it has been brushed off

I have no clue why. This is what is used medically to treat "Height"

You are on a forum with non medical experts. I worked in the field for two decades and people are telling you to just accept it

And that is part of the reason this forum sucks. This forum is full of novices. I do this for a living and I have to argue with people with ZERO experience but REP points bc people think they are cool

This is one one of the least experienced forums I am on , and many times I ask myself why I waste my time trying to help people. You guys are not going to listen to expert advice. You are going to do what you want to do and you are going to waste the time of the few experts on the forum

An endocrinologist is better then asking for advice here.

My little brother went from 5'10 to 6'1 in his early 20's, it definitely happens. No magic pill, just a lazy kid who smoked too much pot, ate junk and slept a lot. Apparently that works as good as growth hormone

I don't think it's brushed off, I mentioned to the kid that they use HGH to make kids grow taller, but that's not what he's trying to do. He's trying to use peptides in place of hgh and crush his estrogen.

Unfortunately I also have to agree with you about the knowledge around here. Im no expert on anything, but it also doesn't take a expert to see that over the years the level of knowledge on this form is going downward pretty hard. The majority of people on this board are just repeating info they herd someone else say or copying someone else protocol and treating everything like it's one size fit all.

I'm always trying to learn more and over the years I feel like I'm down to maybe 5-10ppl that I'm actually interested in what they have to say.

Speaking of interesting people, is Mike doing any better? How bout yourself. Seems like everyone has been sick for weeks

I took a different impression from your post. When you finished your post with the $20,000 price tag, I presumed that you were saying it was too cost prohibitive, especially given the likelihood that insurance wouldn't foot the bill.

There are certainly late bloomers that end up really tall (I was one of the shorter kids in my class until around 17 yo when I passed everyone and topped out at 6'2"). But the OP said he has been 5'8" (not a bad height at all) for 3 years and that his parents are 5'4" and 6'0". Could he still grow? Sure, he could. If he's still able to grow, could HGH help him get more growth than he would without it? From my what I know (admittedly not an expert) I imagine that's the case.

But I'm actually genuinely curious about your opinion on the specifics of what he is considering doing. Would you say he is on the right track or completely off base?

Hes a company rep, there are lots of reps here and it's there job to post about products and stuff. But that doesn't mean he's gotta lie or pat everyone on the back. I actually like the fact that he's involved with the forum but still honest enough to make a post like that. Everyone part of the forum should be, do you want the guys who are supposed to be giving you information to be honest or do you want them to just pretend everything is wonderful even when it's not.

Ppl ask me a million questions on this form all the time and I try to give the best answer I can from my personal experience first and then if they need more you can look to the studies. But I try to always make it clear when someone ask me a question I know nothing about. We have lots of people around here who respond to every thread and try to answer everyone's questions even though they don't have any clue what they're talking about and that's not helping anybody. When he says the forum is unknowledgeable I believe that's what he's talking about and he's not lying. I feel like I'm one of the more knowledgeable people on this forum (by default) and honestly I don't feel like I'm super knowledgeable on a lot of this stuff. It's hard for me to learn new things from this message board because there's not a lot of people left here to learn from.

I'm a rep for several brands here and also many brands in general. I also own GYMnTONIC supplements.

Some people say I shouldn't speak my mind or be honest. I hear that alot.

But the thing is I don't give a ****. I have a good customer base as is from doing this for 25+ years and I don't expect to make everyone like me. We all have our political beliefs and personal beliefs and I am cool with that.

But to my original point, my time is wasted very very often on this forum. I do love the owner and many people here, but I also am frustrated by the lack of experience here, or those seeking advice and then not taking it.

This is why I charge all my clients for my time. Because experience is worth $$$

If I were you, I wouldn't be discouraged by pessimistic opinions you get here.
you may have the opportunity to get taller, and this will improve you for the rest of your life, if you don't take the opportunity now, you might bitterly regret it in the future.

I've 0 experience in making 18yos grow taller. But I did use mk677 for almost a year and it's very well tolerated (and not only in my case). So, if it is relatively safe, why not try it (mk or other peptides)?

good luck!

Mk677 is not very well tolerated by a lot of ppl, in fact it can dramatically effect your insulin sensitivity, but there's definitely ways around that by watching what you eat taking days off lowering your carbs etc. on top of that the op's protocol which I will say again will not work. Involves him using an anti estrogen to potentially crush his estrogen and keep his growth plates open, that is also not well tolerated it's actually horrible. When you crush your estrogen you feel like death, your joints hurt, you get erectile dysfunction, your cholesterol goes up and increases your risk of heart attack and stroke. So pair all those negative effects with taking some peptides that will not raise your gh high enough to grow taller.

All you did right here was just give another perfect example of someone who doesn't have any clue what they're talking about giving advice. And you're not helping anyone you're potentially hurting someone.

I am also no expert on making people grow taller, but crushing your estrogen and taking a bunch of grey area peptides is not going to work

There are legit protocols that Dr.s use, because those are the things that work. But by all means, he's 18 years old and he's an adult, he can do what he wants. So go crush your estrogen, take a bunch of peptides and report back to us in a month or 2 and let us know how it's going.

I'm actually praying that I get proven wrong on this one, cuz if I do I'm buying up a bunch of arimidex and GH peptides and I'm opening up my own clinic for the vertical impaired

My opinion is that it may be too late given your growth has been stagnant for 3 years. Opinion only, not based on science or studies I have referenced. I assume your diet and sleep are on point at a minimum.

I give the OP credit for doing his own independent research then checking with folks on the forum. The logic is sound and shows you did your homework. The methods you reference may not be viable (I do not know the answer and am neither confirming nor denying), but your hypothesis shows you made an initial educated effort. Good for you.

I have 3 boys. One is done growing and is 5'9", the 16 yo is still growing and is 6'2", the 13 yr old is currently 2" taller than the 16 yo was at 13. I'm 6', wife is 5'5". In the absence of CRISPR, its a crapshoot. :)

What would the harm be if the OP used the GH promoting peptides without the expectation of growth? In other words, do it for another reason (fat loss, for example). I am not a proponent of messing with sex hormones at the OPs age.

Unfortunately too late. 14 is when I was crazy into basketball and wanted to be as tall as possible and possibly the latest when sth could have been done about it.

Back then there was this melatonin and niacin routine to grow taller, i highly doubt it worked.
Also clamping of the joints of the long bones to stimulate growth.

I stopped growint at 16 in height. Its very likely you are done growing too.
Unfortunately I didnt have knowledge of peptides and mk back then. Tbh i wouldnt be willing to inject at the time, but would have been interesting to see what would have had happened had I used mk677 with low dose ai when I was 14. I ended up few cm's short of elusive 2m tall.

I miss those times.

Op if it makes you feel any better, i would trade my height with you to be 18 again.
