A person with gigantism or acromegaly has an excess amount of growth hormone, and grows too much, which not only makes that person very tall, but also somewhat distorts their body proportions.
Gigantism is abnormally large growth due to an excess of growth hormone during childhood, before the bone growth plates have closed.
It is well known that gigantism can cause various issues with a person's skeletal system and circulatory sysetm, because of the sheer size of the person, so the chance of living a long healthy life is slim. You must also consider the fact that if the person is too tall, they may not be able to walk confortably or without assistance, so it's hard to get exersice which will lead to a shorter life-span. You can make your own prediction using this information on how long the average person with gigantism lives, my guess is nothing over 60-70 years of ae.
The official definition for the word gigantism is "unusual or abnormal largeness."
No, gigantism is not genetic. Gigantism is caused by a malfunction of the growth hormone so it has nothing to do with your parents or grandparents.
