3,749 Possible Causes for Glucocorticoid

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    Glucocorticoids are the primary therapy for PMR and GCA.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: All patients with PMR were deemed to respond to glucocorticoids clinically.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Treatment with glucocorticoid (GC) is the preferred therapy for polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR), but some patients show poor responses to the initial GC regimen or experience[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cushing Syndrome

    ACTH up-regulation with paradoxical response to glucocorticoid, possibly through the hypomethylation of the POMC promoter, exacerbated the patient's condition.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Glucocorticoid levels, serum parameters, and BMI were analyzed among a larger patient cohort including those with different forms of CS, APAs, and Cushing disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Excess glucocorticoids can be from increased endogenous production or prolonged exposure to exogenous use of glucocorticoid products.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    glucocorticoids.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] KEYWORDS: adrenal insufficiency; dermatology; glucocorticoids[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Despite glucocorticoid replacement, patients with AI have reduced life expectancy and quality of life.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Addison's Disease

    Glucocorticoid receptor polymorphisms that alter glucocorticoid sensitivity may influence metabolic and cardiovascular risk factors in patients with AD.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Supra-physiological doses of glucocorticoids and longer-standing disease (with a consequently higher glucocorticoid intake) might be the main causes behind patients' increased[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Uncertainty exists whether glucocorticoid receptor (GCR) polymorphisms play a role in steroid-related side effects in Addison's disease (AD) patients on hydrocortisone[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Addisonian Crisis

    The diagnosis of acute hypoadrenalism seldom is considered in patients without known adrenal insufficiency who are taking supraphysiologic amounts of glucocorticoids.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If you have been instructed by your doctor, be prepared to give yourself an emergency shot of glucocorticoid or to increase your dosage of oral glucocorticoid medicine in[nlm.nih.gov] These enzymes degrade a wide range of metabolically active compounds including glucocorticoids.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Familial Hyperaldosteronism Type 1

    The disorder became known as glucocorticoid-remediable aldosteronism (GRA).[doi.org] Glucocorticoid remediable aldosteronism also describable as aldosterone synthase hyperactivity, is an autosomal dominant disorder in which the increase in aldosterone secretion[en.wikipedia.org] ATUALIZAÇÃO Glucocorticoid-remediable aldosteronism Aldosteronismo remediável por glicocorticóide Graham T. McMahon; Robert G.[doi.org]

  • Autoimmune Hypophysitis

    All 4 PH and 4 out of 8 INH were treated with glucocorticoids.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patients were treated with glucocorticoids plus azathioprine, and positive responses were seen in all three cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Early initiation of an intravenous dose of glucocorticoid followed by oral steroid administration therefore seems to be an efficient treatment for autoimmune hypophysitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Osteoporosis

    Alternate-day glucocorticoid therapy can lead to similar bone loss. No conclusive evidence exists for a safe minimum dose or duration of glucocorticoid exposure.[doi.org] Abstract Objective To investigate the efficacy of minodronate in the treatment of glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis (GIO).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Zoledronic acid (ZOL) is widely used for treatment of glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Iatrogenic Cushing's Disease

    […] not prescribed glucocorticoids (table 5).[bmj.com] Abbreviations: ACTH — adrenocorticotropic hormone CS — Cushing’s syndrome GC — glucocorticoid GR — glucocorticoid receptor SNP — single-nucleotide polymorphism 3′ UTR — 3′[pediatrics.aappublications.org] […] with the group not prescribed glucocorticoids.[bmj.com]

  • Hyperaldosteronism

    Abstract Glucocorticoid-suppressible hyperaldosteronism is a dominantly inherited form of hypertension believed to be caused by the presence of a hybrid CYP11B1/CYP11B2 gene[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Biochemical abnormalities were now consistent with glucocorticoid excess without hyperaldosteronism. She died four months later.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] FH type I was ruled out by glucocorticoid suppression test, PCR test for CYP11B1/CYP11B2 gene, and urinary 18-oxo-cortisol and 18-hydroxy-cortisol excretion, which was in[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
