Successful treatment of acromegaly not only reduces the levels of GH and IGF-1 to normal but also alleviates the pressure from the growing pituitary hormone exerts on the areas of the brain. Dopamine analogs such as bromocriptine do the latter but, somatostatin analogs like octreotide and lanreotide does both (Hansen, 2006). Other treatments include surgery and radiotherapy for reducing the size of the tumor. Combining dopamine analogs with somatostatin analogs produces more effective results than either does alone. The somatostatin analogs effect on glucose homeostasis is minor and this increase was controlled by administrating octreotide.
