HelloI think you mean hormones.At age 16, no.there is very little evidence that it will have any effect at this age on overall growth.Yet, it would expose you to potentially dangerous side effects. If you want to make sure, you need to see a doctor called an endocrinologist. OK, so that is an initial answer….Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
