Authors: Kan S, Kizilgul M, Celik B, Beysel S, Caliskan M, Apaydin M, Ucan B, Cakal E Abstract Nodular thyroid disease is a very common disorder in patients with acromegaly. Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) is a thyroid growth factor, and there is a correlation between IGF-1 levels and thyroid volume (TV) in patients with acromegaly.
