Medical Treatment of Acromegaly
Treatment consists of surgery, medications, and, sometimes, radiation. Lifestyle changes to avoid further risks of developing associated complications, such as heart disease, vascular disease, stroke, lung disorders, and/or cancers, should also be part of therapy. Lifestyle changes may include smoking cessation, low-fat diets, and exercise.
