Hi Daniela,

Welcome to HelathcareMagic Forum,
This can be told only after seeing your parents. That is because the height and weight of the body determined by the genetic make-up. If your parents are tall you will also be as tall as they are. If your growth is disproportionate to your age, sex and familial patterns then you need to consult a good endocrinologist for your problem.
Take care

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar

Dear doctor , I grew quickly taller around the age of 12-13. Now I am 15+ and 5 feet 4 inch tall. But in the last 2 years, I haven t grown not a centimeter. What s the problem? Is my growing stopped? I am much worried about it. (It is true that I don t like to go out of my house very much (house-keeping behaviour). But I do exercise in the morning for at least 30 minutes)

I am having acute right upper quadrant pain. It woke me up about an hour and a half ago. I am trying to decide if I need to go to the ER or not. I had gastric banding in July of this year but have never had any problems. Feel just slightly queasy.

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
