Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
If judging only based on your weight and height, your posture is actually included in the ideal. The shape of your fingers are long and large, but small in the wrist area can be part of a reasonable anatomical variation, but can also be classified as macrodactily.
Macrodactily itself is a condition where the fingers or toes are abnormally large in size due to overgrowth of bone and surrounding soft tissue. Not infrequently, sufferers of macrodactily will also experience other abnormalities, such as syndactily (several fingers sticking together into one). Not yet known the exact cause of this condition. However, some sources say this condition can occur due to impaired development of nerves in the vicinity (in the hand, often associated with the median nerve).
You need to make sure to go back to your doctor or orthopedic surgeon, whether your condition is actually still reasonable, or whether it is included in an abnormality. If the disorder is true, and you feel very disturbed by it, your doctor may direct you to undergo surgery to improve the condition of your fingers. However, if it is reasonable, certainly no special handling is caused. You may be advised to do some type of exercise to increase arm and wrist muscles so that your wrist size looks more proportional.
Hope this helps ...
