Unlikely: Acromegaly as a result of excessive GH is extremely rare and symptoms are not straight forward but you can look them up. The IGF-1 is a good screening test for GH excess but if it was only mildly elevated the normal GH would be reassuring. After you read up, please discuss with the doctor who ordered the tests because it can be complicated
