Effect of Growth Hormone (GH) on Cardiac Echos in GH Deficient Patients After Acromegaly Treatment
This study is ongoing, but not recruiting participants.

The purpose of this research study is to study the effects of growth hormone (GH) replacement on the heart. The investigators will study these effects in people who have been cured of acromegaly and then have developed growth hormone deficiency (GHD, not enough growth hormone).
||Observational Model: Case Control
