Storyboard Text

  • The adrenal cortex produces two main groups of corticosteroid hormones—glucocorticoids and mineralcorticoids. The release of glucocorticoids is triggered by the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. Mineralcorticoids are mediated by signals triggered by the kidney.
  • Endocrine System
  • Oh I know about the Endocrine System.  
  •  When the hypothalamus produces corticotrophin-releasing hormone (CRH), it stimulates the pituitary gland to release adrenal corticotrophic hormone (ACTH). These hormones, in turn, alert the adrenal glands to produce corticosteroid hormones.
  • Endocrine System
  • What is the Endocrine System?
  • What is the difference between corticosteroids and hydrocortisone?
  • Hydrocortisone: Commonly known as cortisol, it regulates how the body converts fats, proteins, and carbohydrates to energy. It also helps regulate blood pressure and cardiovascular function.Corticosterone: This hormone works with hydrocortisone to regulate immune response and suppress inflammatory reactions.
  • Endocrine System
  • And the aldosterone?
  • Aldosterone, which maintains the right balance of salt and water while helping control blood pressure.There is a third class of hormone released by the adrenal cortex, known as sex steroids or sex hormones. The adrenal cortex releases small amounts of male and female sex hormones. However, their impact is usually overshadowed by the greater amounts of hormones (such as estrogen and testosterone) released by the ovaries or testes.
