I Am taking Inflammide 200 for moderate asthma. I have heard that taking steroids or cortisone can give you diabetes. True?

William, Inflamide® won’t cause diabetes, so don’t worry. Cortisone in high and continuous dosages is “anti-insulin” and may cause problems with your glucose metabolism over the long run. Good luck.
