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.

Glucocorticoids also release food stores for use in a stress reaction. ...Read more

There is much yet to be understood about the brain, but enough is known about spinal cord and brain dysfunction to know that a significant enough insult or damage to any one area can disrupt various other system processes. ...Read more
Does the composition of blood change as it passes through different parts of the body (e.g. the intestines and the lungs)?
What are two ways the endocrine system directly impacts the functions of the cardiovascular system?
Many...: Via adrenaline it puts more stress on the heart, making it beat harder, stronger and faster. Nor-adrenaline causes the blood vessels to contract, raising the blood pressure. High Insulin levels, as in "pre-diabetes" cause the release of free fatty acids which damages the blood vessel walls, causing plaque formation. Cortisol and other hormones also have adverse effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
