Santino Ma­trun­dola’s Story - Novomber 1st Na­tional Acromegaly Aware­ness Day

Montreal Times - - News -

This Novem­ber 1st will be the first ever Na­tional Acromegaly Aware­ness Day. But what is acromegaly? Usu­ally, acromegaly de­vel­ops from an ex­cess growth hor­mone. In some, it’s sig­nalled by an en­large­ment in the hands and feet. In oth­ers, it’s in­vis­i­ble—aside from the ad­verse and life-al­ter­ing side ef­fects in­clud­ing ex­treme fa­tigue, brain fog, joint pain, and vi­sion prob­lems. Santino Ma­trun­dola, owner and pho­tog­ra­pher of Fu­sion Pho­tog­ra­phy, ex­pe­ri­enced the in­vis­i­ble later ef­fects of the dis­ease.
