Is it possible to shrink in height instead of grow?
My long lost sister is an inch shorter than the last time her height was measured!
Three main possibilities:-Once you stop growing you begin to shrink, so if she is middle-aged then this is quite likely-There could have been no minimal in height and the measurement was slightly off each time so that maybe it just got rounded down instead of up the second time-Sometimes injuries can reduce height. I know that if you break you tailbone it can take off height
I have a question. How do you know the before height of your long lost sister when she was lost?
Actually, yes. Some people, (mostly elderly people) shrink as they get older. It is due to the fact that their muscles and bones have gotten weak over the years, and their body may shrink some.
Once you reach like 50, you start to shrink very little.
My co-worker lost 3inches and found out she needed surgery on her spine.
