Dont know if anyone can help here BUT I need some advice!
Betamethasone has a very high glucocorticoid activity in conjunction with insignificant mineralocorticoid activity. This makes them particularly suitable for high-dose therapy in conditions where fluid retention would be a disadvantage.
According to the BNF that is!
But could the highers glucocortoid activity mean the risks of diabetes is higher ??
Im slightly worried as since changing and especially since upping to equivalent of 60mg pred I've been needing to drink ALOT more but whether thats because I am simply not keeping excess fluid on now or whether its possibly related to increase craving for sweeter things !!
Probably sounds totally whacky but its so strange how I am cravinfg sweeter things and drinking more and totally exhausted all the time!
