Our aim is to analyze metabolic complications in subjects with acromegaly and pituitary gigantism.Subjects and methods: Records of 111 subjects were retrospectively examined, mean GH=62 ng/ml (n<5), mean age=39.11 (14–60). All had routine analysis for fasting blood glucose, cholesterol, triglycer...
