An American woman who was suffering from a rare hormonal disorder has been at least provided with some relief after undergoing twin surgeries and placed on a combination of drugs.
Las Vegas, Nevada's Tanya Angus was diagnosed with a condition called acromegaly which causes an overproduction of the growth hormone in the body. As a result the 31-year old grew up to almost 7 feet tall and weighs more than 330 pounds.
Angus revealed that she had grown well above 6 feet tall and had a size 12 feet, prompting questions over her sex. "It sounds horrible, but someone at work actually asked me if I used to be a man. I'd started to look so big, it had raised doubts in people's minds about what sex I was", she said.
