If you are already quite physically active and regularly run or go to gym classes a few times a week then keep it up.

Just remember to give yourself time to recover between exercise sessions if you do not already do so, by exercising every other day or alternating the exercises and activities that you undertake.

Of course, there may be days where you do not feel like exercising or perhaps your acromegaly causes joint pain that makes exercises difficult or just not possible for you. If this is the case, talk to your doctor as perhaps they can suggest medication or gentle exercises that you can do.

Please also talk to your doctor or another healthcare provider before undertaking any new exercise plan or if you’d like advice on what exercises you should be doing.
