A bit about ACTH (Adrenocorticotropic Hormone) -- a helper in stress management

The History of MS 1970s - Treatment with adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) replaced by high-dose intravenous steroid therapy

Suppression of histamine-induced adrenocorticotropic hormone release by antihistamines and antidepressants.

AIMAH Adrenocorticotropic hormone- (ACTH-)independent macronodular adrenal hyperplasia (AIMAH) is an infrequent cause of Cushing's syndrome (CS). AIMAH presents as incidental radiological finding or with subclinical or overt CS, occasionally with secretion of mineralocorticoids or sex steroids. The pathophysiology of this entity is heterogeneous...

Cushing's Syndrome describes signs and symptoms associated with prolonged exposure to inappropriately high levels of hormone cortisol. Caused by taking glucocorticoid drugs, or diseases that result in excess cortisol, adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), or CRH levels. Disease refers to a pituitary-dependent cause of Cushing's syndrome: a tumor (adenoma) in the pituitary gland produces large amounts of ACTH, causing the adrenal glands to produce elevated levels of cortisol. #endocrine
