What is the meaning of Corticosteroids?

Corticosteroids are a class of medications that are synthetic versions of the hormones produced by the adrenal gland. These hormones, including cortisol, are important for regulating inflammation, immune function, and metabolism. Consequently, corticosteroid drugs help reduce inflammation, swelling, and redness.

Corticosteroids are commonly used in the treatment of a wide range of conditions, including allergic reactions, autoimmune diseases, respiratory diseases, and skin disorders. However, these treatments can also have significant side effects, particularly when used for extended periods of time or at high doses. Corticosteroids' side effects can include weight gain, fluid retention, osteoporosis, increased risk of infection, and changes in mood or behavior.

Corticosteroid drugs come in a variety of dosage forms, some of the most common forms include tablets, steroid injections, nasal steroid sprays, and topical corticosteroid agents such as creams and ointments.

What are Corticosteroids used for?

What are Corticosteroids used to treat?

Corticosteroids are indicated to treat a number of health conditions that cause inflammation, swelling, and redness. Some specific corticosteroid uses include:

  • Allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, angioedema, and allergic rhinitis
  • Asthma and other respiratory diseases, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Autoimmune diseases, like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and multiple sclerosis
  • Inflammatory bowel disease, such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis
  • Skin disorders, including eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis
  • Organ transplant rejection
  • Cancer treatment, as a component of chemotherapy regimens or to manage side effects of treatment
  • Adrenal insufficiency, which occurs when the body is not producing enough cortisol
  • Pain and inflammation associated with joint and muscle injuries

What is the mechanism of common Corticosteroids?

Corticosteroids exert their effects through a complex mechanism of action that involves binding to specific receptors in cells throughout the body. When corticosteroid medicines are administered, they diffuse across cell membranes and bind to intracellular receptors. This binding activates a cascade of molecular events that ultimately leads to the suppression of the immune system and the reduction of inflammation.

Corticosteroid drugs can affect the expression of genes involved in inflammation and immune responses, decreasing the production of cytokines and chemokines, which are key mediators of inflammation. They can also reduce the production of prostaglandins and leukotrienes, which are lipid mediators of inflammation that are involved in the pathogenesis of many inflammatory diseases.

In addition to their anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects, corticosteroid treatments can also affect glucose metabolism, fluid and electrolyte balance, and bone metabolism. One common mechanism of corticosteroids involves increasing blood glucose levels by promoting gluconeogenesis and inhibiting insulin secretion. They can also cause sodium retention and potassium loss, leading to fluid and electrolyte imbalances.

Types of Corticosteroids

Corticosteroids, used to control inflammation and swelling in the body can be split into two groups based on their potency. The following will describe these types of corticosteroids, corticosteroids' mechanism of action, and corticosteroid uses in more detail.


Glucocorticoids are a type of corticosteroids that are widely used for their potent anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects. They work by binding to glucocorticoid receptors in the cytoplasm of cells, causing a decrease in the production of cytokines and chemokines, which are involved in inflammation and immune responses.

The corticosteroid medicine group glucocorticoids have a wide range of indications, like inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis and other forms of arthritis; allergic reactions and asthma; inflammatory bowel disease; skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis; organ transplant rejection; and cancer treatments.

Glucocorticoids can be administered by different routes, including orally, intravenously, topically, or by injection, depending on the indication and severity of the disease. However, they can cause numerous side effects, including weight gain, osteoporosis, diabetes, and increased susceptibility to infections.

Most commonly prescribed glucocorticoids include hydrocortisone, prednisone, betamethasone, and dexamethasone.


Mineralocorticoids are a type of corticosteroid drug that primarily affects fluid and electrolyte balance in the body. They act by binding to specific receptors in cells in the kidney and other tissues, which regulate the retention and excretion of sodium, potassium, and water.

Mineralocorticoids are primarily used to treat conditions associated with excessive loss of sodium and water, such as Addison's disease: a condition in which the adrenal glands do not produce enough cortisol and aldosterone; salt-wasting congenital adrenal hyperplasia: a genetic disorder that affects the adrenal glands and leads to excessive loss of sodium and water; and orthostatic hypotension: a condition in which blood pressure drops upon standing, leading to dizziness or fainting.

Potential side effects of mineralocorticoid corticosteroid medicines include high blood pressure, fluid retention, and electrolyte imbalances. Close monitoring and dose adjustments may be necessary to minimize the risk of these side effects.
