Dexamethasone Medicine?

I want to ask if dextametashon is good for body fat

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Dexamethasone is a drug from the corticosteroid group that is given to treat inflammatory conditions. These drugs are included in hard drugs (drugs with a red circle label) that should not be used before checking the doctor first and you shouldn't also buy without a prescription from a doctor.


This drug is clearly not intended to fatten the body. Side effects from the use of the drug dexamethasone can indeed increase appetite so people who consume it can think of this drug can "fatten the body". However, the increase in body weight obtained is actually caused by fluid retention (not a normal condition) and the fat formed will accumulate in abnormal places (such as in the stomach and face) so that the fat obtained is central fat (not normal conditions and clearly not healthy) and rounding of the face or moonface (also not normal conditions). You also need to know that the use of these drugs can increase your risk of developing diabetes, eye disorders (cataracts and glaucoma), disorders of the immune system (so you are more susceptible to infection), hormonal disorders (which can cause menstrual cycle disorders in women, breast growth in men), and there are still very many serious side effects that can occur from the use of this drug carelessly.


You should avoid using this medicine unless you do have certain indications determined by your doctor.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
