Hi Sadiah, Thank you for consulting at icliniq. Since you already know you have Pica, and have weight problem because of eating raw rice, this disorder is usually due to iron deficiency anemia. Of course raw rice has more calories which is leading to your weight gain and also sometimes it can contain a bacteria Bacillus Cerus which can lead to food poisoning too. Pica can be caused sometimes by psychological problems too which might need behaviour and aversion therapy. As for your height, it’s totally depends of your ethnicity and also genetics as well as nutritional deficiency but not on weight of a person. I would suggest you to get a complete blood count test and follow up with reports. Hope I was able to help you and will be happy to help you further. Thank you and stay safe.
