Guinness World Records says Mr. Wadlow had pituitary gland hyperplasia. This caused the human growth hormone to be at a level that was too high.
Robert’s huge height, on the other hand, led to a number of health problems that got worse as he got older and taller. Still, when he was a young boy, he tried very hard to do the same things his friends did.
When a picture of the “Tallest Man Who Ever Lived” showed up on the internet, everyone was shocked. A user made a joke that “Wadlow is not in the group of guys I only date if their height starts with a 6.”
Another user said, “Wow, that was awesome, and he looked so nice.”
Mr. Wadlow was only 22 when he died. On July 15, 1940, he died in a hotel in Manistee, Michigan, from an infection in a blister on his right ankle. The blister was caused by a brace that didn’t fit right a week earlier.
