Within oncology... Prednisone and Dexamethasone are used to treat the hypercalcemia and brain metastases.
My friend says prednisone causes HYPOGLYCEMIA but...
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.
