Glucocorticoids

What are Glucocorticoids

Glucocorticoids are a type of corticosteroid hormone known for their potent anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects. Glucocorticoids are secreted naturally by our adrenal gland in response to adrenocorticotropic hormone which is secreted from the anterior pituitary gland in response to stress.

Synthetic (man-made) glucocorticoids, such as dexamethasone, hydrocortisone, and prednisone, are widely used to treat inflammatory conditions such as asthma, dermatitis, and allergic reactions. They also decrease the body’s immune response.
