What is Acromegaly?
Acromegaly is a rare disease usually caused by a pituitary adenoma, a benign tumor in the pituitary gland. The pressure from the pituitary tumor causes the pituitary gland to produce too much growth hormone (GH) which leads to abnormal growth in the bodies of adults, usually in the hands, feet, and face.
Acromegaly Support is an online community resource committed to raising awareness of the early signs and symptoms of Acromegaly.
It is our hope that by joining the global rare diseases community and responding to the voices and needs of patients, families, and clinicians awaiting diagnosis and treatment for their disease that together we can pave the way to improved quality of life for those living with this serious condition.
