Had surgery for acromegaly. What could be the cause for my abnormal adrenal gland?
I have acromegaly , post 2 times surgery one in 1986 and one in 1999. Since the 1999 surgery my health has gone straight down hill. I found out by a GP that I have had a heart attack and I have damage to left side of my heart. I thought I was having cronic kidney infections but I found out the adrenal gland is right there also. Stress is killing me. I keep trying to avoid it but no matter how I try I just can t handle it. My job is very stressful and I have been locked in my room for 2 weeks now dealing with the shakes and nerves and fear of loosing my job. Previously all my test have come back good. One dr. told me I may have another gland producing hormones which would explain me not needing any meds. But my concern is the adrenal gland, and my nerves. I can t function anymore, could that be the cause?
HI Thank for asking to HCM I really appreciate your concern for your problem of Acromegaly look this is genetic disease in short and you could understand this I say that some defective gene is responsible for this condition which cause the over active of growth hormone and in response to this condition develops called Acromegaly hope this information helps you, take care and have nice day.

Sir, My sister s son is diagnosed with Growth Harmons problem as his height growth is lower than normal. He is around 12 years of age. Test result shows following; Growth Hormone 0.045 ng/ml 0.10-8.80 INTERPRETATION:Low levels which are not able to be stimulated to a level achieved by normal subjects occur in pituitary dwarfism in children.High or normal levels cannot be suppressed are found in gigantism and acromegaly .lGF-1 is a better screening test for acromegally and gigantism.
