Fludrocortisone Acetate

Fludrocortisone Acetate

Fludrocortisone is a mineralocorticoid used to treat adrenocortical insufficiency and salt-losing adrenogenital syndrome.
Fludrocortisone is a synthetic mineralocorticoid used in conjunction with hydrocortisone to replace missing endogenous corticosteroids in patients with adrenal insufficiency.It is functionally similar to aldosterone, the body’s primary endogenous mineralocorticoid, and is structurally analogous to cortisol, differing only by a fluorine atom at the 9-position of the steroid structure – this fluorination is thought to be crucial to fludrocortisone’s significant mineralocorticoid potency.
