What is acromegaly?

It is a chronic disease that can affect anyone, apparently healthy, and at any time in their adult life.

Acromegaly is caused by the massive secretion of growth hormone or GH, which causes those affected to suffer a disproportionate increase in size . Acromegalics grow a few inches, their hands and feet are enlarged, and the features of the face are deformed. Their vital organs also grow, which can lead to serious diseases, such as hypertension and heart attack. Excess GH is usually due to a tumor in the pituitary gland, which is surgically removed. An alternative to surgery is drug treatment with somatostatin analogues.
