One of the goals of Acromegaly NZ is to raise awareness of acromegaly.
Some patients may experience significant delays in the diagnosis of acromegaly. This may results in reduced quality of life and increased morbidity and mortality.
Early in disease progression, acromegaly may not manifest with clear clinical symptoms or the stereotypical physical changes that is associated with acromegaly. A high vigilance from health professionals is required.
We have produced awareness materials for a range of health professionals, these are available FREE to download. Please feel free to share these with your health professionals.
