    What causes you to lose height?

    Report bad ads?

    Last time I measured myself, I'm sure I was 183cm but now I'm 179cm, either I measured myself wrong last time, or I've lost 4 cm. What are the possible causes of losing height?

    Age. As we age, our bones become smaller/shorter, thus we lose some height.

    also, slouching. Some people slouch when standing or walking and thus become hunchbacks like that and loose their normal height.

    Also depends on the time of day you measured yourself,
    People are usually taller in the morning after a good night's sleep, and the joints compact due to gravity by evening

    Height fluctuates throughout the day +/- 1/half an inch. So it is nothing to worry about. It is something to do with spinal disc compression. Its normal though.

    I've done quite a bit of that, anyway to reverse it? Do I just sit up straight?

    Yeah, if you get Osteoporosis you lose lots I heard. But I don't know at which age you're most likely to get Osteoporosis, I think only people from 40 and above get it but I'm not sure at all.

    You have to sit up straight and walk and stand straight. You can ask others around you to remind you. My brother used to slouch and we'd hit his back everytime to fix his behavior and he started walk and standing straight. It added 3 inches to his height. There are also back straps that can help keep you straight till you become normal like that.
