WORLD'S TALLEST MAN FINDS LOVE

 
WORLD'S TALLEST MAN FINDS LOVE
Posted October 28th, 2013 @ 2:37pm

There may be two and a half feet between him and his wife, but world's tallest man Sultan Kosen is on cloud nine after meeting the woman of his dreams. The Turkish farmer -- who at 8-feet, 3-inches, dwarfs his 5-feet, 8-inch fiancee -- married Merve Dibo over the weekend. Kosen has long been searching for a woman to share his life with, and had reportedly given up hope -- until he met Dibo. His gigantic wedding suit and shoes were custom made. Kosen said all he wants now is a car big enough for his size in which he can travel with his bride.

... Sultan suffers from a rare disorder called pituitary gigantism, which causes his body to continually produce the growth hormone. His condition is believed to have been caused by a tumor in the pituitary gland. Doctors thought they had cured him in 2008 when they removed the tumor but he continued to grow by half and inch a year. Now medics say he has finally stopped growing.
