Imagine having problems with your vision. Maybe you’ve also noticed that your:
- Rings don’t fit
- Shoe size went up
- Jaw has grown or your teeth suddenly have spaces between them
- Tongue seems to have grown
- Skin tags
- Joint pain
What’s worse, many of these people feel alone in their suffering. Most have never met another person with their condition, and it’s hard to get solid information about it. At STINSON, we’ve been privileged to talk to many of these people with acromegaly. We’ve heard their stories and their pain.
Now, there is an opportunity to heal some of that pain.
The Magic Foundation, a patient advocacy group for pituitary disorders is hosting its 5th Annual Convention for Adults with Pituitary Disorders. It takes place on June 11-13 at the Chicago O’Hare Marriott. This year’s meeting includes a session specifically focused on acromegaly.
