    There are several options. I actually used to be way below average height for my age, so my endocrinologist (Dr. Raphael David, NYU Medical Center) told me about growth hormone. Basically, it comes in the form of an injection that you give yourself every day, or as directed by your doctor. There are several companies that manufacture it. I take Humatrope, which is manufactured by Eli Lilly and Company. I've been taking it for just over two years, and it made such an amazing difference in my life: I've grown over 6 inches! Yes, it's a shot, but after a while, it doesn't hurt that much. Also, when you get blood tests or shots from doctors, they won't hurt as much, either, because you'll be used to it. This stuff is not cheap, but insurance pays for most of it. Talk to your doctor about it. It'll really make a difference in your life.

    How old are you? Not sure how you can be taller... but if you still have a few growth spurts ahead of you, you can do some pre-emptive steps to avoid stunting your growth.

    Drop caffeine from your diet, don't smoke cigarettes. That's just off the top of my head, there's probably a lot more out there.
