How do I know if I have acromegaly?
Most people do not know they have acromegaly until the disease is advanced. Signs of acromegaly often develop so gradually that they go unnoticed for years or even decades.
The most common symptom is enlargement of the hands or feet. You may notice that your rings are becoming too small, a sign that your hands are growing larger. You may need to buy larger shoes.
