See you are now 17 years old..and you are taking a treatment for short heights..but which treatment are you taking.. is it growth hormone or anything else? And if growth hormone then I will not be that much beneficial to increase height.. because at the age of 17 years..your skeletal growth will be growth hormone or any kind of treatment is less effective or even not effective after 16-17 years should start treatment quiet early ..around 12-13-14 year age..

Need detailed evaluation and endocrinology opinion - on urgent basis. As the age is approaching 17 years, most likely puberty issues will also be there if the height is low. Don't keep your morale down. Getting the right diagnosis for your short height is utmost important and accordingly the treatment.

There could be many factors for this the most important is the the genetic factor then it could be nutritional deficiency and one more thing which needs to be ruled out is any hormonal factor for which you can consult to an endocrinologist
