I am a 21-year-old male, my height is 5’3 (160 cm), my dad is 5’6 (168 cm), my mom is 5’1 (153 cm). I have been constantly underweight (52 kg).
I had chronic diarrhea for about 4 years due to an untreated infection from 15 to 18 years old. I was barely eating and skipped most meals, I had a complete loss of appetite and I didn’t feel hungry at all. I usually had one meal per day.
I didn’t seek medication until the condition became unbearable ( very painful with lots of diarrhea per day) in the fourth year of my disease.
I did a stool analysis and there was Entamoeba Histolytica with Undigested food. so I ate very little, had malabsorption and diarrhea.
I went to an endocrine doctor and he measured my wingspan and said that my vertical height is 10 cm shorter than it should be for the right proportions.
I did an X-ray on my knees and all my growth plates have fused which means that I won’t grow taller anymore. I wasn’t into sports or literally, any physical activity was very very inactive through my teenage years, stayed at home playing video games all day.
So I was sitting on my chair all the time not doing any physical activity although I knew I was the shortest among my friends, I didn’t care back then and now, I regret not doing stretching exercises or trying to eat more. I truly think I stunted my growth with my horrible lifestyle, I am way shorter than my dad.
Can you please pray that God helps me get my lost height? Can God even grant such prayer after all my growth plates have fused? I only want an inch or two.
Can God increase my height?
