They have lots of flattering photos of him.
Why don`t the doctors give him something to stop his body from producing growth horomones? Isn`t there some sort of treatment to make him a bit shorter? And he is very normal for a twelve year old. He is a complete moron just like the rest of em. I was a substitute at a intermidiate school once and a whole class didn`t even know what the capital of their own state was. I even had one kid say it was Germany.

He`s actually lucky as far as that condition goes. There was a guy in my high school who grew so quickly and so much that by the time he was 10 he was confined to a wheelchair. He couldn`t stand because his joints and muscles hadn`t been able to adjust to his rapid growth and due to the stress on his vital organs he died at the age of 25. When he finally stopped growing he was well over 7 feet tall and his head alone was practically the size of my torso.
He was a really great guy, and it was a shame when he died. It sucks when the people who should live a nice long life are the ones who die young.

Hmm that`s kind of sad.

However either he wasn`t too bright or they clipped whatever he said but that interview of his was...wow.

Maybe he just looks old and I expect him to sound old?

Your an idiot.

You can`t call anyone but yourself retarded if you can`t spell `doctors`."

and so are you; you used "your" instead of "you`re" in that sentence. does he own an "an idiot" or is he an idiot?

Personhead 19: "He certainly doesn`t sound like he`s 12 years old. He has a pretty deep voice."

It`s so deep because, to still be living his organs have to grow proportionately to his body. The larynx has something to do with the voice.

Big larynx = Singing bass in choir
Huge larynx = That movie commercial guy (Don something-or-other I think)
The Larynx of a 6`11" person = Close to the effect of an average person`s voice in slow-mo.

and the news guy, was he 12 too?

dust_monkey, you should probably look up -gigantism- (not giantism) before you go spouting; it has nothing at all to do with growing ALL your teeth by the age of four months.

Well IronicUserID, pat yourself in the back. Your apparent understanding of compassion and respect is not just commendable but deeply touching as well.

I admire this kid. We should all be so happy with the way we look. I find it really common, people with what the medical world has labeled as "conditions" are often happier with themselves than "normal" people. Don`t feel sorry for him, it looks to me like he leads a good life. He has a supportive family (moving into a house to accommodate his height?!), an active lifestyle, and I`m sure plenty of friends (12 year old boys aren`t nearly as mean as 12 year old girls). I`m certain that pity is the last thing he wants.

We have that same couch hes sitting on, the green one w the aztec-like designs.

And yea, the kid looks like hes stoned, or autistic. Geez the extremes dont bode well. Theres this person at my university, that cant be more than 2` tall. Has to use a cart to get everywhere.

^^..you`re having your teeth come in that soon isn`t a symptom of giantism. and most giants are fairly normal sized babies and children. there are 2 types of giantism. natural giants and caused giants. natural giants like yow(sp) ming, he grew that tall. and then they are caused giants like sandy allen. she`s tall due to a pituitary tumor. if not for that she might be average sized.

It looks to be similar to giantism, but his head and fingers seem close to normal size, and his teeth grew in really fast? That`s odd, not a giant thing (as far as i know)
Most giants are in fact gentle, since they are very very strong but often get tired very quickly. If they were in a fight, they`d probably get beat. Andre the Giant was an exception, he was both strong and had endurance.
I met a 7 footer here in Winnipeg, he played in the NBA, eh? HE was just plain tall, not a giant.
Anyhow this boy seems to be "in between" really tall and giantism, no wonder doctors don`t know what to do. But yeah I too doubt he`s the only one.
Best wishes to him and his family, this can`t be easy for anyone.

Looking at his facial structure and the joint issue you can tell the body itself doesn`t know what the F*k is going on either. Poor kid, it`d be something entirely different if it didn`t mess with his physical appearance so much =/ Still thats out of the ordinary. Kinda neat, kinda freakish. Wonder if his school mates are afraid of him..

"To him, he`s just like any other 12-year-old boy."

I diagnose him as delusional. Nah, I feel bad for the kid, but he seems to be coping with it pretty well.
