In this blog post, I present three cases involving patients suspected of having possible acromegaly and discuss follow up. After reading, please share your thoughts.
Case #1 is a 51-year-old man who was first referred to me for primary hypothyroidism. However, at our first visit, I was struck by his large hands. Upon further questioning, he reported a history of snoring, sleep apnea and excessive sweating. He no longer was able to wear his wedding ring.
