Stop smoking: These two issues are not related . Smoking causes cancer in several organs aside from the lung and makes the asthma less responsive to inhaled steroid treatment. Very low blood sugar may be an early sign of losing control on insulin secretion which may precede diabetes in some people. Diabetes causes early heart disease and smoking just hastens it. You must stop smoking.
