World's Tallest Man Stops Growing!

Sultan STops Growing

The world's tallest man has put a stop to growing — and it's a very, very good thing.

Thanks to researchers at the University of Virginia Medical Center, Sultan Kosen (who is only 29) will hopefully stay 8-feet-3-inches.

He suffers from acromegaly, a chronic metabolic disorder that causes too much growth hormone to be produced. The condition has lead to gigantism.

Usually it's caused by a tumor in the pituitary gland — so the doctors put him on a medication that helps control the production of those hormones. Then, they went after his tumor.

They used Gamma Knife radiosurgery, which is non-invasive!

And guess what?

It worked.

And it's a good thing too — because his body would not be able to support much more growth!

Fab!
