944 Possible Causes for Decrease in Height

  • Osteoporosis

    Sometimes a collapsed vertebra may cause severe pain, decrease in height, or spinal deformity.[] Additional risk factors for hip fracture include: Previous fracture of any type after age 50 Decrease in height since age 25 Self-rating of health as fair or poor Previous[] The semiquantitative grading scale was as follows: grade 0, normal; grade 1, a decrease in the height of any vertebra of 20 to 25 percent; grade 2, a decrease of 25 to 40[]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    The time to Spo2 of 95% correlated well with height, age, and body weight both by linear and non-linear regression analyses.[] Manual ventilation was reinstituted when Spo2 decreased to 95% and another set of vital signs was recorded.[] The patients with symptomatic upper respiratory infection required less time for Spo2 to decrease to 95% compared to the asymptomatic children.[]

  • Sinusitis

    Nasal corticosteroids: nasal drying, limited evidence of benefit, mometasone furoate is approved for children over age 2, reported decrease in height growth rate in asthmatic[]

  • Vertebral Compression Fracture

    The damaged vertebrae will decrease in height due to the fracture, and must decrease by at least 15% in order to be considered a VCF.[] The von Mises stress significantly decreased between pre-augmentation and post-augmentation in T12 OVCF models of grade 0-3 vertebral heights.[] Kyphosis is a decrease in vertebral body height of 4 centimeters can lead to a 15-degree curvature.[4] Once a VCF is seen on X-ray, the next step is to get an MRI with a special[]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    GH deficiency: In children, symptoms include short height, fat around the waist and in the face, and poor overall growth.[] In adults, symptoms include low energy, decreased strength and exercise tolerance, weight gain, decreased muscle mass, and feelings of anxiety or depression .[]

  • Osteomalacia

    Pertinent findings are low serum phosphorus, low vitamin D and decreased bone mineral density. These findings led to a diagnosis of osteomalacia.[] Here, we present the case of a 31-year-old man who has been suffering from generalised bone pains and a spine deformity that led to loss of height.[]

  • Senile Osteoporosis

    The vertebral height and vertebral cross-sectional area (CSA) increased, while vertebral trabecular BMD and trabecular bone volume fraction (BV/TV) decreased from the cervical[]

  • Aging

    With respect to oxidative damage and its targets, growth-arrested bacterial cells show some of the same signs of senescence as aging insects, worms and mammals. In addition, the fact that the life span of growth-arrested Escherichia coli cells is greatly extended by limiting oxygen availability suggests that free[…][]

  • Osteopenia and Osteoporosis

    Osteopenia and osteoporosis are two disorders caracterized by bone density loss. Osteopenia has no recognizable symptoms. There is no noticeable pain or change as bone becomes thinner. However, the risk of fractures is increased due to reduced bone density. Osteoporosis remains asymptomatic until skeletal[…][]
