You are definitely a diabetic and must do everything to bring down your sugar to normal levels.
There is no asthmatic medicine which shoots up blood sugar levels except steroids.
Uncontrolled diabetes is very dangerous as it can lead to various micro as well as macro vascular complications from your head to toe.
You must change your lifestyle and go for calorie restriction,weight reduction and regular exercises along with proper anti diabetic medications.
Consult a internal medicine specialist or a diabetologist and take proper treatment after undergoing all relevant investigations.

thanks for choosing health care magic.Dear this is definitely high and in most of the case anything like this always considered to be a diabetic report.If you are taking any form of steroids your blood sugar may go up.Go for testing of fasting sugar,postprandial sugar and HBA1C(this gives average sugar for last 3 months) to confirm the diagnosis and take treatment accordingly.

Diabetes is usually a chronic disease in which there are high levels of sugar in the blood.
Exercise , weight reduction and diet control increase the bodys sensitivity to insulin. , thus helping to control blood sugar elevations.
Having Fenu greek seeds with Bilwa leaf gravy is one of the most effective remedy for controlling blood sugar.
Chew 10 grams of Neem leaf on empty stomach everyday is a useful remedy to reduce blood sugar.

Hi dear
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

If you are taking oral steroids your sugars will be high.But generally in the treatment of asthma , inhalational steroids are given which dont cause rise in sugar.

This range of sugar is suggestive of Diabetes.Please get a Oral Glucose Tolerance Test done to confirm the diagnosis.You can know the sugar levels and their fluctuations in the past 3 months by the test HbA1c.

Take care.
