Always suspected

You know the motivational speaker, Tony Robbins? I always thought he looked like he might have acromegaly (or take GH for body building/weight loss/performance enhancement, whatever), and he DOES! Check out his wiki page! He's been added to the acromegaly wiki page too.

I wish he would talk about it a little bit more.

Yeah, I always thought he looked like a candidate.

Speaking of, I think I look like a candidate too. I have noticed some changes in my bite (lower jaw shifting forward past couple years), and a few other things. I had my IGF-1 reading taken a few weeks ago since I more or less self-diagnosed that I may have Acromegaly, and at 40 yrs old, I've got a reading of 900-ish. My endocrinologist says I most likely have a pituitary tumor. I now need to do the glucose-tolerance and MRI. I must admit, I'm scared by this.

I'm glad there are some bloggers out here I can discuss this with. I have a feeling I'm going to need a support group.

Lucky for Tony he hasn't been disfigured by the disease like so many of us have. He looks totally normal to me, even his height isn't that abnormal.
