Often, yes: Hi. Treating nonclassical congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) with dexamethasone (dex) is the standard therapy and often restores normal cycling and fertility. The dex dose should be adequate to suppress adrenal androgen production but be low enough to not cause Cushing's. It may take months for ovulatory periods to resume. Good luck! ...Read more
Do glucocorticoids suppress all parts of the immune system, or suppress some parts and increase the activity of other parts?
Complicated: The answer is complicated. In general glucocorticoids suppress the immune system by interfering with protein production in cells. That being said, glucocorticoids also work on receptors in the cytoplasm of cells, enacting signal mechanisms, some of which are unclear as to action. Glucocorticoids also release food stores for use in a stress reaction. ...Read more

Will my dhea/ dheas return to normal (pre-steroid) after weaning off a glucocorticoid, or will it stay suppressed?
Don't : Worry about the level. It's not of any significance and won't cause you any harm. Dheas is only of concern when it's highly elevated. It's just slightly low due to your glucocorticoid. There's nothing wrong. ...Read more
Dr. Hamsa actually a cardiologist prescribed it for me. but i think spiriva is better cuz seretide is a glucocorticoid which is bad for the body.
Steroids: Hormones from the adrenal gland such as cortisol. Aldosterone is a mineralocorticoid, since it is involved mostly in sodium/potassium balance. Steroid medications such as dexamethasone and prednisone are predominantly glucocorticoids, whereas fludrocortisone is a mineralocorticoid. ...Read more
Does glycyrrhizic acid (in liquorice root) have glucocorticoid effects? If so, has it ever been studied for use in treating lo-cah? Study links?
No: Glycyrrhizinic acid inhibits an enzyme in the kidney (11?-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase). This enzyme inactivates cortisol in the kidney. Inhibition of this enzyme leads to decreased inactivation of cortisol and thus to increased cortisol levels. Not expected to work in cah since this is characterized by an inabilty to make cortisol. ...Read more
