“Patients are labeled ‘cured’ by medical doctors but still feel like a patient with acromegaly,” Jitske Tiemensma, PhD, of the University of California, Merced, said in a news release. “It might be difficult for a patient to bring up lingering physical symptoms, and medical doctors might not always recognize what’s going on.”
