Keeping Fit

If you do not already have an active lifestyle, below are some reasons why you should keep active and tips to help you increase your level of physical activity.

Living with acrogamaly

Information about the emotional, physical and social challenges of living with acromegaly


If you are already quite physically active and regularly run or go to the gym a few times a week, then keep it up.

Just remember to give yourself time to recover between exercise sessions, if you do not already do so, by exercising every other day or alternating the exercises and activities that you undertake.

Of course, there may be days where you do not feel like exercising, or perhaps your acromegaly causes joint pain that makes exercises difficult or just not possible for you. If this is the case, talk to your doctor as perhaps he or she can suggest medication or gentle exercises that you can do.

Please also talk to your doctor or another healthcare provider before undertaking any new exercise plan or if you’d like advice on what exercises you should be doing.
