Acromegaly Cost

What is Acromegaly?

Acromegaly is a rare hormonal disorder brought on by an overproduction of the hormone growth hormone (GH). The body's bones and soft tissues develop excessively as a result of the increased GH. The syndrome can cause children to grow to unusual heights. They might also have disproportionately large bones. Arms, legs, and the face are the primary areas of acromegaly. It is known as gigantism in children and causes a rise in height. However, there is no difference in height in an adult. The condition is known as acromegaly and affects just the bones in your hands, feet, and face. The Acromegaly Treatment cost in Hyderabad depends upon various factors. So you must contact the doctor to know about the prolactinoma treatment price in Hyderabad.

But before knowing about the prolactinoma treatment price in Hyderabad, there are other important things to know about. Growth hormone, commonly referred to as human growth hormone (HGH) and somatotropin, is a hormone produced naturally that affects many different sections of the body and helps children grow. Your body still requires GH even if it no longer gains height once the growth plates (also known as epiphyses) in your bones have fused. After you've stopped growing, GH aids in maintaining proper organ, bone, and cartilage structure and metabolism, including assisting in maintaining healthy blood glucose (sugar) levels.

  1. Surgery for acromegaly

    Surgery frequently significantly reduces or eliminates the symptoms of acromegaly. Transsphenoidal surgery is a type of surgery where the patient's nose and sphenoid sinus, a hollow area in the skull located below the brain and behind the nasal passages, are used as entry points for the surgeon to perform the procedure. The size and location of the tumour will determine the specifics of the operation. The aim of surgery is to completely remove a tumour that is producing too much growth hormone.

  2. Medication

    If surgery is unsuccessful in lowering GH levels, medication is another therapy option that is frequently employed. It can also be used to reduce big tumours before surgery. These kinds of drugs are employed to control or obstruct GH production:

    • somatostatin analogs

    • GH receptor antagonists

    • dopamine agonists

  3. Radiation

    When medication alone is ineffective or huge tumours or tumour portions left over from surgery need to be removed, radiation may be employed. When used with medication, radiation can gradually aid in lowering GH levels. Radiation is given in numerous four- to six-week periods during this type of pituitary adenoma treatment in Hyderabad, and it may take several years for GH levels to significantly fall. Your fertility may be affected by radiation. Rarely, it may cause additional cancers, brain damage, or visual loss.
