The primary goal for treating acromegaly is to reduce the levels of growth hormone and IGF-1 to normal. One of the first options to consider is removing the pituitary tumour that is the root cause of the symptoms; the second option is to reduce the tumour's size. In both cases, it is important for the pituitary gland to be able to function normally after treatment.
