Inhaling corticosteroids can elevate chances of being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, according to investigators from the Jewish General Hospital’s Lady Davis Institute for Medical Research (LDI) in Montreal.

The investigators’ findings suggested that asthmatics and those suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) taking corticosteroids may be at a considerable risk.

The study was published in the American Journal of Medicine.
