He's full of shit but curvature of the spine can make someone seem shorter, and that can be caused by osteoporosis. So it could happen to someone. But he says he's only been poisoning his body since April. If the poison were that potent, it would be really visible in the trans population by now and very few of them would still be able to walk.

If these men were telling the truth about the amount of height lost, it would mean the bones in their backs were breaking, and sooner or later they'd end up paralysed.

There’s quite a few threads that mention it. Some TIMs say it’s possible, other TIMs say it’s not. Either way it certainly isn’t “magic”.

ETA: thanks for the link!

Yeah, I can believe it's sometimes a thing because we see it as part of the ageing process, so it looks like some of them are ageing their bodies faster and making themselves ill. Their feet are not shrinking, though; that is not a thing. They may have bought shoes from a shop with different sizing.
