For someone who likely has a tumor on their pituitary gland and is enduring pain which appears to be caused by excessive GH and GH1 in their bloodstream, is there any way to reduce the effects of this excess until they can get to the hospital for confirming MRIs which are scheduled for this coming Wed. Would sipping sugar water help?

Hello and thank you for asking

The goals of therapy are to relieve and reverse the symptoms and this is done by normalizing production of growth hormone and reducing the effects of the pituitary tumor on the surrounding tissues.
