Remember there is something called antidiuretic hormone and all these other hormones and the dose affects all these things so apparently the 10mg is the right dose maybe, I'm on twenty, maybe we need that much to get swelling down or whatever it is? but 5mg might do the same thing if you hardly ever took pred or if you took 5mg for a long enough time. I would still have them check with the ultrasound when they look at the baby if they can. Or talk to gi about it. Fatty liver can be really really bad, very serious and fast progressing and is present in almost every overweight person. There is tx, I'm on vitamin E and glucophage, tell hub and check net on it. vitamin e really good tx, and helping gi and all. Take care and brief (hugs) to save space.
