Anya, here is a quick lesson on the physiology of dexamethasone. It causes sodium retention and potassium hydrogen loss due to its effect on the renal tubuli. It stimulates the liver to make glucose from amino acids and glycerol. Amino acids are of course the building blocks of proteins. The more potent the cortisone, the more marked these effects are. Let me know if you have more questions. Good luck.
