Not directly related: Shoe size and height are mostly genetically determined, however height can also be influenced by diet and exercise.

Is it possible for you to estimate height from childs shoe size?

Is it possible for you to estimate height from childs shoe size?

Somewhat: The growth plates of the foot close before the ones of the legs and spine, and this usually occurs at age 14 in girls and 15-16 in boys. An x-ray of the foot and leg can help determine how much more growth the foot and the leg have, which can give an approximate estimate of the height. 60% of height is from the leg and foot. ...Read more

At what age does a person stop growing height, and also shoe size?

Skeletal Maturity: A person stops growing when the growth plates in the bones close, which is medically known as "skeletal maturity." typically this is 16-18 for girls and 18-20 for boys. Bones in the foot generally mature about 2 years sooner than the long bones that affect height. Keep in mind that these are averages, so some people are on the very high or low ends of the spectrum. ...Read more

If a boy is 5'0" with size 9 shoes at 12 what is his estimated adult height?

5'10": If a boy is 5'0" at 12 and has bone maturity equal to his age, he should follow the normal growth charts and end up 5'10". An x-ray of the left wrist and hand can be assessed for "bone age".If the growth centers are open and consistent with a 10yo, the kid would likely be taller, if more like 14, shorter. Shoe size has no predictive value. See www. Cdc. Gov/growthcharts. ...Read more

Hello my son has been very concerned about his height recently. He is 15, 5'8" and wears a size 13 shoe. Recently we went to one of his doctors (not primary) and after looking at an X-ray she said he was almost done growing. It didn't make sense to either

Observation: At 15 yrs your son is nearing end of adolescent growth spurt which for boys occurs thru age 18 yrs. The bone growth plates begin to fuse eg. (closure) beyond which growth ceases. Additionally, sexual maturation is also progressing. Boys can show a delayed growth pattern which is hereditary, similar to dad at this age. Advise son to eat a well-balanced diet, keep yearly wellness exams & immunize. ...Read more

Are my feet to large for my body im 168cm in height and size 9uk 10usa shoe size and if my feet are too big are their any issues with that?

Are my feet to large for my body im 168cm in height and size 9uk 10usa shoe size and if my feet are too big are their any issues with that?

You're fine: Life is too difficult already to worry about whether your feet are disproportionately large. This is not a sign of any illness, and we're certainly not going to try to make them smaller. If somebody is claiming your feet are big, say you have a good "under-standing". If you are preoccupied with this, you might benefit from treatment for body dysmorphic disorder. ...Read more

If I have acromegaly would I have other symptoms than just gaining height? Shoe size now smaller, rings are loose, no bigger features, EKGs/echos normal

Acromegaly: Check out http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/acromegaly/basics/definition/con-20019216 for more info. It's unlikely for you to gain height at 39yo. Furthermore, it's unlikely for your shoe size to shrink as a result of acromegaly. Lab test (IGF-1) can easily screen for this condition of excess growth hormone. Go see your Family Doc & Endocrinologist. ...Read more

I read that alternating shoes each day and heel height (from 3/4 to 2 in. And wide instead of narrow) is good for feet. Is this true? If so, why?

Yes, only low heels: You are right and I agree but I would limit wearing 2 inch heels to occasionally. When you wear high heels, it forces your forefoot to bear most of your weight. This can lead to problems. ...Read more

Hi doc. I'm short, I would like to use layers under my shoe to increase my height. Which is the perfect height that I can get without causing foot damage?

Heels: I feel you should only use shoes to raise your height. Too much mass in your shoes will cause problems for your toes, top of your shoes or blisters to your heels. Make sure you keep your shoes at the same height to prevent any back issues. ...Read more

How high should shoe heel be for woman with flat feet/overpronation who wears orthotics? Why is that height important?

How high should shoe heel be for woman with flat feet/overpronation who wears orthotics? Why is that height important?

Hmmmm: Are you 72 and asking about high heels? If they are for you, my hat is off too you. Flat shoes are not good in this situation and bare feet long time periods may be problematic. Good heel height usuallly one inch with gradation to platformed front. I am sure the physician who made orthotics could give you shoe recommendations. If these comments are not specific enough I am online now. ...Read more

I have a cousin who I suspect has some kind of growth disorder... She just turned ten and wears a size 12 shoe. Is this abnormal?!

Probably OK: Shoe size is not an accurate way of diagnosing growth disorders. It would be helpful to know what her height percentile is and if she is tall for age, if she is well into puberty that would cause an earlier than usual growth spurt but not tall stature as an adul ...Read more

High GH level: Are you above 99 percentile of hight? You could be in a normal range of high growth hormone (gh) production or you might be above that level. High level of growth hormone has a direct correlation with skeletal system growth. If your hight is more than 99 percentile a blood test to measure gh level could be helpful. ...Read more

What to do if I have smaller shoe sizes, like 11-12. Are my feet really big?

I am not sure: What you are asking. You should buy appropriately fitting shoes. "feet being really big" is a possibility. You would have to check your foot size against the average foot size for your age, height and weight. ...Read more
