can u loose heigth

Since around 15yrs old ive always been tall 6'3  im now 36yrs old and have lost several inches in heigth somehow im like 6'ft maybe 6'1 now. What could cause this? My testosterone is really low its under 100 & normal is 300-1000 if that could cause it.

HI and thanks for using the forum


We do tend to lose some height as we age.  YOu need to check with your doctor about this, but I don't think that the low testosterone is the cause of this (but I am not positive).  Sorry to not be too helpful about this.  good luck.
