Does Advair Raise Sugar Glucose In Type 2 Diabetics

Does Advair raise your sugar numbers

Answer

Good questions. Systemic corticosteroids can effect your sugar. However, Advair is a medicine you inhale directly to your lungs in order to minimize the systemic effects. The high doses of Advair may increase your sugar, but the low doses usually do not (but that still doesn't mean they can't).

If your doctor has decided you can benefit from this great asthma medicine, and you have diebetes, he may want to start you on a low dose and have you monitor your sugar extra close for a while.
