Acromegaly Information
and Management Resources

Identifying and diagnosing the chronic disease known as acromegaly can be challenging. This is predominantly because acromegaly manifests slowly and progresses over time—often remaining undetected for up to 10 years.1,2

As a healthcare professional, being familiar with the characteristics of the disease, the diagnostic tools available, and other educational information can help you ensure a timely diagnosis for your patients. Your role is essential to promote earlier detection and diagnosis of acromegaly.3
