Asthmatic, diabetic. What type of nebulizer would suit me?

My age is now 65. I am an asthmatic ( Bronchitis ) since more than 35-40 years. Due to the prescription of a Bangalore (now deceased) doctor, I used Betsone ( Betamethasone ) Tabs for almost more than twenty years due to which now I became a diabetic II patient also. For Asthmatic attack, I am using 1) Combitide and 2) Duolin inhalers. In severe attack, I use the Duolin inhaler several times in a day. Now I like to use Some desk-top or a portable Nebulizer . Kindly answer the following questions in this regard. 1) Which type of Nebulizer suits to my condition? 2) What type of Respules or medicine (in combination or in single) i have to take in? 3) What are the side effects for the two inhalers, that I am taking now?( I am using them since more than ten years) 4) What will be the effect on my diabetic condition? ( I am using Glyciphase and Glucomet-250 Tabs for this) Certain numbness in the fingers and the sides of legs and also some tingling sensation in some muscles -(I think due to the diabetic condition-Since more than 10 years a diabetic).
