Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose loss of height, we could:
- Research the topic
- Find a doctor with the time

The process is the same, whichever method is used.
We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
bone loss being controlled
history of stress fractures
being lean or underweight
history of broken bones
high caffeinated soda consumption
slight diffuse bone pain
low alcohol consumption
a few loose teeth
having poor posture
limited lifetime sun exposure
