I stopped growing when I was 11. I had asthma and the medicine they gave me totally stunted my growth. I can say my height is the same a 11 year girl. Lucky me, my legs are short, what is a great bonus about LL.

I know for a fact that steroid usage before you are done fully growing can stunt your growth. There was even a special on one of those Dr. MD type of shows where they had a case of this boy who had a certain disorder that required him to get injected with steroids on a regular basis to combat it. The Dr. flat out said that the steroids as a side-effect stunted the boys growth.

Other than that, I've been told if you lift heavy weights you could potentially break one of your growth plates and that will definitely stunt your growth.

hi guys.
My wingspan is also about 2cm greater than my height (I'm a girl)-this suggests to me that I should have been 2cm taller. . . . . . . . . . . . . . no?!

To mmt admin-you are absolutely right, going over the past is pointless.  but I really feel that I just need to get these pointless questions out of my system once and for all and then I will channel that energy into my LL ambition.

thanks.

No it doesn't - wingspan is often a little longer than height.

Stunted Growth?

Old thread, but I'll try anyway.  Have I reached my highest potential height, or is my height a result of stunted growth?

Useful info:

I'm about 6′ (182183 cm, and morning height is 184 cm)

Older brother: 6′2, or 6′2. 4 if you will (188189 cm, and morning height is 190 cm)

Dad: 6′2-ish at his peak (188189 cm)

Older sister: About 5′9 (175176 cm)

Mom: Somewhere between 5′4 and 5′5 at her peak (163164 cm)

My theory is that I inherited one or several impactful genes from my mother which my siblings didn't inherit, which made my spine, and possibly my head, shorter.  I and my older brother have the same hand length, arm length, shoulder width, arm span (which is about 184 cm) and leg length.  His feet are longer, but from what I've heard, my father had about as long feet as me, which probably explains that.  My body definitely has decent symmetry, and my height and arm span, and my older brother's arm span, are more or less the same as the average height of our parents (gender is taken into account).
