Acromegaly Canada

Our mission: to raise awareness of acromegaly and gigantism through education while providing a network of support for patients and their families across Canada.


We’re here to help.

We offer resources to help patients and their support networks understand acromegaly and gigantism, learn what treatments are available, and explore how to best manage symptoms.

We connect individuals with acromegaly and gigantism to local support groups, so they can socialize, share experiences, and offer guidance specific to their area’s health care systems.

We raise awareness about acromegaly and gigantism, seeking more timely diagnosis, better quality of life, more integrated care. and a more nuanced, realistic view of the condition.
