does a buffalo hump ever stabilize?
Jun 16, 2003

Is there any information on whether or not a buffalo hump ever stops growing? I have a small one that has been growing slowly for years - it's not too bad, but will it ever stabilize?

Response from Dr. Moyle

It should do. Regular exercise and high fibre diet may help a little. As may keeping you weight in the recommended range (body mass index 20-25) At some point a change of medications may also help

Best Wishes
