Cortisone and cortisol are important glucocorticoid adrenal hormones that regulate dozens of functions in the body, but especially inflammation and immune response. They are widely used to treat autoimmune diseases such as lupus and arthritis, because of their immune-suppressing properties, and severely inflammatory diseases such as Crohn’s disease and psoriasis.
Some drugs can cause high homo-cysteine levels, particularly those that interfere with folic acid, such as methotrexate, an immunosuppressive drug given to cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriasis patients.
