Slim teenager trans forms into 6ft 8ins giant

Giant Tanya Angus suffers from a rare disorder which caused her to grow to huge proportions, but now doctors have found a cure for her life-threatening problem.
 

 


Tanya, 31, has acromeglia, a rare form of gigantism, which causes the body to overproduce growth hormone.
Sufferers are very tall, but in Tanya's case, her entire frame has grown in proportion, leading to her putting on 24 stone, while her shoe size has doubled from a standard UK size 6, to a UK14.
She has also grown more than a foot, and now towers over everyone else at 6ft 8ins.
Doctors told Tanya if they couldn't halt her rapid growth, her heart would be put under too much stress and give out.
Tanya's quest for a cure will be documented on I'm Turning Into A Giant on Channel 4's Bodyshock series at 10pm on Tuesday.
Tanya, from Las Vegas, Nevada, was only struck down with the unusual illness in her late teens.
Looking back on pictures of herself as a pretty, slim, teenager, it's hard for Tanya not to get emotional about how the disorder has changed her body and her life, beyond all recognition.
'I was 5ft 8ins and a size 10, I loved horseriding, dancing and just having fun like a normal teenager,' she said.
'I had a boyfriend, an apartment, a job I loved, I just loved my life.'
