1 Height decreased? on Sat Mar 14, 2015 12:34 am

Pre-ED I was 5'3 but over the passed two years I've suffered with anorexia, orthorexia, & binge purge tendencies. When I went to a day by day treatment center they measured by height as 5'1, I thought they were wrong but weeks later I went to my doctor & he measured 5'1 too!! Why did I shrink?? Did my eating disorder do this?!

Osteoporosis Symptoms ? Insufficient vitamin D intake ? Insufficient calcium intake?
Anyway anorexia can lead to a loss of bone mineral density and breakdown of bone structure....

Ultreia is right, this can be because of bone loss. You should ask your doctor for a bone scanning.
