Since Sudden Onset Adult Asthma some 6 years ago, I have to use steroid inhalers. I have gained a little weight (about 2kg) but the thing I find is that it is horrendously difficult to lose any weight. Diets I used to use simply don't work, So, you would think you are right. On the other hand, a nurse I know (also asthmatic and using the same inhalers) is slender and fit. She is 20 yrs. younger than I.
In other words, I don't really know. It probably depends on your circumstances, age etc..
If used daily for years then maybe one could put on weight........maybe.

Thank you both
Not necessarily. Some people who use them find their symptoms are improved enough to move and exercise more; others claim they feel hungrier and need to eat more.
Yet others don't notice any significant change to their exercise ability, appetite or weight.
yeah if you work at it
