Acromegaly, a condition caused by excessive growth hormone production from the pituitary gland, leads to enlarged bones & organs. Situated at the base of our brain, the pituitary gland, also known as the hypophysis, is a tiny, pea-sized endocrine gland. It holds the nickname ‘Master Gland’ due to its pivotal role in producing vital hormones that regulate various bodily functions. Acromegaly gradually worsens with time. If left untreated, it can result in severe complications, including life-threatening heart and blood vessel diseases. Typically affecting middle-aged adults, this rare disease can also cause gigantism in children, causing a significant increase in height. With Homeopathy, you can address acromegaly at its root without the risk of side effects. Homeopathy treatment for acromegaly improves the patient’s overall health & quality of life.
Symptoms of Acromegaly
Acromegaly is characterized by enlarged hands & feet, thick lips, coarse facial features, a prominent forehead and jaw, and widely spaced teeth. Excessive sweating is also common in individuals with acromegaly. Depending on the root cause, symptoms can be grouped into three categories: those caused by high growth hormone levels, hypopituitarism resulting from pituitary gland damage, and the pressure of a large tumor on surrounding brain structures.
Effects of High Growth Hormone Levels:
- Sleep apnea
- Colon polyps
- High blood sugar
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Heart failure or enlarged heart
- High blood pressure (Hypertension)
- Enlarged thyroid gland (Goiter)
- Numbness of the hands or feet
Causes of Hypopituitarism:
- Menstrual disorders (irregular or absence of periods)
- Decreased sexual desire
- Feeling cold
- Loss of appetite
- Weight loss
Causes of Tumor Pressing on the Gland:
- Tunnel vision
- Vision loss
Homeopathic medicine for acromegaly can offer effective treatment and gradual improvement.
Causes of Acromegaly
The most common cause of acromegaly is tumors, which may be caused by underlying genetic mutation. Tumors can be of two types:
- Pituitary Tumors: These benign tumors, also called adenomas, produce excessive growth hormone, which causes most symptoms. Some symptoms, such as blurred vision or headaches, can be caused by growing tumors pressing on nearby brain tissues.
- Non-Pituitary Tumors: These tumors develop elsewhere in the body, such as in the pancreas, lungs, and adrenal glands. They begin to secrete growth hormones, leading to excess hormone circulation.
Acromegaly Treatment in Homeopathy aims to treat the underlying cause of acromegaly, providing long-lasting relief rather than temporarily suppressing symptoms.
