Prednisone is a corticosteroid (steroid), but different from anabolic steroids. Corticosteroids, unlike steroids, are not used by bodybuilders and athletes to build muscle. Prednisone is widely used in the treatment of many other conditions, including multiple sclerosis, asthma, ulcerative colitis, skin diseases, lupus and severe allergies. Prednisone is also for dogs and cats as a corticosteroid used to treat inflammatory arthritis and boost the immune system. There are two types of corticosteroids: mineralocorticoids and glucocorticoids. Prednisone is a glucocorticoid, a medication known for its impressive anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory effects. As a rule, in the case of stress and inflammation, the human body and the adrenal glands produce cortisone, which combats inflammation in the body.
