Adrenal gland problems caused by steroids

Another important aspect to consider is how your current medications might be affecting your adrenals in a negative way. It’s possible that adrenal insufficiency can develop when a person taking glucocorticoid hormones (like prednisone) for a long time, which act similarly to cortisol, suddenly stops taking those medications. If you’re on any prescriptions for treating inflammatory illnesses like rheumatoid arthritis, asthma or ulcerative colitis , talk to your doctor about how to adjust your dosage appropriately before changing them yourself since these can lower ACTH and cortisol.

What was the proper treatment suggested by your doctor? Was it surgical removal of the cyst? What is your recent blood pressure reading? If you are taking homeopathic medicine since 5 months, have you experienced any changes in your symptoms or has your high blood pressure reduced? If not, you should review the line of treatment. Also do a sonogram of kidney and adrenals to know the size of the cyst. Whether it has increased or decreased in size. Several factors have to be comprehensively considered for further management of the cyst.
