Re: Can inhaled steroids for asthma increase glucose levels?
In my experience, my Advair doesn't. HOWEVER, I take my Advair at the same time everyday, and have been using it for a long time, and all my basals are therefore adjusted to the change, if it does change my blood sugars. But inhaled steroids shouldn't be systemically absorbed.
My albuterol, on the other hand, does raise my blood sugar. Albuterol isn't even a steroid though!
