Treatment of acromegaly is directed by an endocrinologist, a physician who specializes in diseases of the endocrine system.
Treatment includes treating the pituitary tumor that is at the root of the disease. This may include medications that control the growth of the pituitary tumor and decrease the amount of growth hormone that the pituitary gland releases into the body. Surgery or radiation therapy may be used to take out or destroy the pituitary tumor.
Prompt treatment can help minimize the development of these complications and the risk of early death. However, damage to organs and bones that has already been done at the time of diagnosis cannot be reversed.
