Hi Crittah,

We have a list of pituitary centers on our website. I do agree you need to see a specialist. Here is a link to a list of pituitary centers.

Unusual Presentation of Acromegaly was created by crittah

I have several current acromegaly symptoms and complications and a micro adenoma. However, my endocrinologist says the tumor is non-functioning because the IGF-1 blood test is normal. I told him I was concerned because I have so many of the symptoms, so he suggested I travel for treatment to a major pituitary center. My question is which centers and doctors have experience with such a difficult diagnosis? Is anyone else having this difficulty?

Thnx.
