The world we live in is filled with a multitude of diseases, infections, conditions and ailments that can all have an significant impact on a person, their body and their quality of life. However, very, very few diseases have a change of height as a symptom.
While losing a couple of inches in height is natural as most people grow older, if you notice a rather significant difference in a relatively short amount of time, then it might be time that you or your loved one visit a doctor.
This loss of height is a result of relatively large bone loss in the vertebrae and spine. While it is a gradual progression, the early it is detected, the higher the chances of it having a minimal impact on your lifestyle.
