Emotional tears contain more protein-based hormones - prolactin, adrenocorticotropic hormone, and leucine enkephalin - all of which are produced by our body when under stress. The body gets rid of these chemicals through tears.

Corticosteroids are chemicals related to hormones produced by the adrenal gland. These drugs work as anti-inflammatory agents and also suppress the body's immune system. Although corticosteroids can reduce the duration of symptoms, they do not cure MS. Examples of corticosteroids are methylprednisolone, prednisone and adrenocorticotropic hormone. Another option is Acthar Gel for MS relapses. #acthargel #steroid #MSEducation #teachmems #msmam

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
