Glucocorticoids: Glucocorticoids are one type of adrenal cortical hormone, chemical substances produced and secreted by the adrenal cortex. Glucocorticoids are steroid hormones that help to regulate metabolism and also have anti-inflammatory and anti-allergy effects. Because of these effects, prescribed glucocorticoids are used in treating such conditions as arthritis, allergic reactions, and asthma and preventing transplant rejections.
The most plentiful of the glucocorticoids is cortisol. Conditions that can afflict glucocorticoids include Addison's disease, Cushing's syndrome, adrenal tumors, adrenal cancer, and trauma.
