As if all of us haven't seen evidence of this in our personal lives:

Damn, well this was kinda depressing. SysOp, we should have a section for posts on the latest research on bone growth/stem cells/hormonal regulation that could lend itself to future methods of height increase. I realize we have the "possible alternatives" subforum but I don't see much scholarly stuff posted there, just popsci really. Then again you probably have your hands full as it is.

I've been reading up a lot on growth plates and hormones... honestly wish I had become interested in all of this sooner before I committed to becoming a doctor as opposed to a researcher. Given my biochem background I'd love to contribute to some research.

My thoughts on the article itself: just more proof that there is more to height than just being physically shorter. But society today is only beginning to accept that there are other types of suffering besides physically hurting/being sick. It will be a long time before people understand the full implications of being short, though.

OK, I am 100% certain to go for LL once I can afford this.  All I hope it's that it'll be something that continues for the foreseeable future, rather than stopping altogether.  I did read the article as well.

I know I saw ads about "glucosamine" and I thought about going for that.  But recently I learnt that LL is the only way that works, so that was a scam with a lot of fake reviews.

There was a clear personal bias against short people from the creators of this study because their experiment doesn't show that being short affects your emotional state of mind.  They took 60 women who already had a problem with paranoia and put them in virtual reality that suddenly shrunk them.  This doesn't say to me that being short affects your state of mind, rather if your environment suddenly changes drastically around you and you already have a history of paranoia you're going to freak out.  It's a shame that most studies about height attempt to just reinforce the prejudice against short people rather than challenge the prejudice.

Some people get along fine with their height.  Women don't have to really worry as much as men about their height, IMO.  But for us men, it's harder.  Thank the spirit in the clouds for leg lengthening, it's a true blessing IMO  :D

Hello SysOp,

can you direct me to more information about the pain involved with the PRECICE II method? What is the overall pain like for MOST patients and what should I expect going into the surgery?

I've read a lot of posts on here about the pain involved but at the same time, I need information before I can go ahead and get my consult booked!

Thank you!

Glucosamine doesnt work ive taken 9000 mgs a day zero effect on height. Ive also taken HGH as well for about a year pretty much non stop again zero effect on height. Works well for fat loss though but only if taken with injectable testosterones

They took 60 women who already had a problem with paranoia and put them in virtual reality that suddenly shrunk them.   This doesn't say to me that being short affects your state of mind, rather if your environment suddenly changes drastically around you and you already have a history of paranoia you're going to freak out.

This study is interesting, but irrelevant to our condition.  What they showed was that paranoid women experience more paranoia when they're put in a really unfamiliar environment (VR, which if any of you have tried, it can easily make you dizzy, and that's with the current crop of GOOD VR - HTC Vive, Google's Daydream), AND shrunk them by 10 inches.

What did they expect really?

Yes, being short can affect your state of mine, but this study has very little to do with proving that.  I'd like to suggest removing this thread or updating the OP, because right now it's misleading but it caught my eye because it's pinned in the "General Leg Lengthening Questions & LL News!", and only makes us short people feel worse.
