Wondrous Words Wednesday

Here is a word I came across this past week.

Acromegaly- is a hormonal disorder that develops when your pituitary gland produces too much hormone during adulthood. When this happens your bones increase in size.

  2. Hi Mary Ann,

    Not content with your simple definition of the word and the fairly graphic image you used to support it, I had to go and look it up in more detail, to satisfy my own curiosity. Wrong Move!! They do say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing in the wrong hands and by the time I had finished my investigations, I might have found myself reaching for the phone to book my doctor's appointment! It is only my obsessive and morbid fear of anything to do with the doctor or the hospital which prevented me!

    Great word though, thanks for sharing :)
