Glucocorticoids and the kidney

Mangos, George; Whitworth, Judith; Williamson, Paula; Kelly, John

Description

Glucocorticoids are widely used by nephrologists for their immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory effects. The present review considers three aspects of glucocorticoids with which nephrologists may be less familiar: (i) renal metabolism; (ii) effects on renal haemodynamics; and (iii) effects on blood pressure as they relate to the kidney.
