      I'm not completely sure how much growth is affected for people with
      AMC, but I am 6'1", but also my legs are not effected by AMC, only my
      arms. I do find it at times frustrating though to reach higher items
      like cupboards because I cannot straighten my arms all the way. My
      arms (bone-wise) seem to be normal length though. There seems to be
      quite a variety of specifics, on a individual basis, for people with
      AMC that give us each our own individualism among AMC folk (though
      that's not all that surprising).
