Dan Jeffries

AcroTales is a series of interviews with people living with Acromegaly - a rare condition caused by a benign tumour growth in the pituitary gland.If often takes 6-10 years for Acromegaly to be diagnosed and patients usually have a complicated journey to diagnosis. Acromegaly causes an excessive release of growth hormones which results in enlarged facial features, growth of hands and feet, changes in jaw and bone structures, loss of libido, visual problems and more. In each AcroTale, patient and advocate Dan Jeffries talks to acromegalics from around the world, discussing diagnosis, treatment and the effects on social and personal life.
