    Within oncology... Prednisone and Dexamethasone are used to treat the hypercalcemia and brain metastases.

    My friend says prednisone causes HYPOGLYCEMIA but...

    I disagree.

    Prednisone is a corticosteroid...
    Meaning= fluid ret. Na+ ret. And elevated glucose level.

    How can this be possible then?

    Maybe it masks symptoms of hypoglycemia?

    I'm so lost.
