Shoe Laces are Getting Longer

Just something I noticed this morning – my shoe laces are getting longer!

Since starting Sandostatin LAR treatment (Octreotide, a Somatostatin analogue), I’ve noticed a few improvement.

It appears now that my feet are getting a bit ‘slimmer’, so I’m tightening my laces a bit more, so the laces are appearing to get longer! One of the features of acromegaly is growth of feet, so it’s encouraging to see a positive change here. Naturally any bone growth can’t be reversed, but the soft tissue growth can be reversed – so this is what I’m experiencing.
