Patient :Hello I am 16 years old, and I am worried about my height. I have always been shorter than most of my peers but it never bothered my as I had not reached puberty yet. I am now 4 years into puberty and have not grown much. My height right now is 5 feet 2/5 inches. I have never had good eating habits. I am not obesece, but I have never been a good eater as I am very picky with my foods. I'm concerned that I have stunted my growth. My question is; if I have stunted my growth, can fix this by starting to eat all the nutrients Recomended and exercises? Or is it possible that I have reached a point of no return?
