Doctors use these and other hormones sparingly, and for a limited time, so that u n d e r ;heir supervision the chances of lasting side effects, are at a linimum. Cortisone is Â» hormone that ; produced by the adrenal gland which lies close to ilie iidney. A C T H is m a n u f a c - tured" in the pituitary gland which lies in the brain.
