Factors Affecting Height Development

The development of the length of the fetus is very early in the first weeks of pregnancy and the length reaches its peak before the 15th week of pregnancy. Whereas the fetal weight reaches its highest during the 32nd to 34th week of pregnancy.
Nutrition plays an important role in height development. After birth, in the first year the height of children grows quickly. The height of a 1-year-old child is one and a half times the height at birth, for example at birth, the length of a child is 50cm, and up to 1 year of age will be 75cm. From 1 to 10 year olds, children in the period of regular growth increase on average about 5cm.
When it comes to pre-puberty, children grow up very quickly. The age of pre-puberty for Vietnamese children is 9 - 11 years old for girls and 12 - 14 years old for men


At this age, the height of girls increases by 6cm and 7cm for men.

When puberty (12-13 for women and 15-16 for men), growth slows, increasing by about 2cm each year. The next stage until the age of 25, the growth is very slow, only increased by 1-2cm or almost no increase. The adult body is about 23 years old for women and 25 years for men.
