Complications of acromegaly
Other conditions associated with acromegaly:
- Arrythmia (abnormal heartbeat)2
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)1
- Colon polyps2
- Hypopituitarism (pituitary gland is not producing enough of its hormones)1
If you have been diagnosed with any of the conditions listed above, but think you may be suffering from acromegaly, you should speak to your doctor. Treating the acromegaly to reduce growth hormone levels could help relieve symptoms of the co-morbidity.2
