Customer Question

I am 24 man who weighs only 90 pounds! I have always been noticeably smaller in both height and weight compared to most in my age group. I do not have anorexia, bulimia, or any eating disorder that I am aware of. I've eaten as I've always eaten. Never lived in poverty, always had food. Never went hungry in my life. Why am I this way?

Hi there ...

Thank you for your question ...

Increase in height and weight is not only dependent on good diet , but body release Growth Hormone that help to attain height , so if you are small compared with age fellows than you should check your growth hormone levels to check if you are deficient , but as Growth occurs up to age of 19-21 years where someone attain maximum height , but still you should get test .

Regards .
