Wristbands To Raise Awareness For Acromegaly Disease

Raise Awareness of Acromegaly with Acromegaly Awareness Wristbands

Raise awareness with custom acromegaly awareness bracelets. Acromegaly is a disease that affects an estimated 50-70 million people in the United States. Acromegaly is most common in middle aged adults and is marked by excessive bone growth in arms, legs, hands, feet and head. As this is a slowly progressing disease, it often goes undiagnosed and can go untreated for years before creating serious, and even potentially life threatening conditions. Acromegaly awareness bracelets can increase knowledge of the disease so people can get treatment and relief from their symptoms.

What is Acromegaly?

Acromegaly is a disease caused by a small benign tumor at the base of the pituitary gland causing it to produce too much growth hormone. This excess growth hormone results in abnormal enlargement of bones in the hands, feet, arms, legs and head. In addition, it can lead to high blood pressure, sleep apnea, Diabetes, cardiovascular diseases caused by enlargement of the heart, pre-cancerous growths in the colon, osteoarthritis, spinal cord compression and vision loss.

Signs and Symptoms:

  • Enlargement of hands and feet manifest by rings not fitting, shoe size steadily increasing.
  • Less common and a more slowly evolving symptom is enlargement of bones in the face which may show by protrusion of the jaw or brow, enlarged nose, thickened lips and widening of spaces between the teeth. As these occur over time, they are often overlooked as the change is gradual and not easily detected.
  • Coarse, oily skin
  • Skin tags
  • Joint pain
  • Swelling of soft tissue
  • Excessive sweating
  • Vision impairment
  • Persistent headaches

Diagnosis and Treatment:

Acromegaly can be detected by blood tests or oral glucose tolerance tests measuring growth hormone levels. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans also are used to detect tumor affecting the pituitary glands. Treatments for acromegaly include surgery, pharmaceuticals and radiation treatments.
