This is a wonderful article and extremely informative.  It offers more advice to women re the use of steroids and osteoporosis!
Please read the rest of the article.

"Yes. Although boys are more likely than girls to have asthma, adult women are more likely than men to have asthma. Women are more likely than men to be hospitalized or to die from asthma."

This is not a new discovery re steroids and osteoporosis.  Here is another article from 2000 saying basically the same thing.

April 21, 2000 -- A steroid inhaler may be your best friend if you have asthma. It's easy to use and generally has fewer side effects than steroid pills. But a new study shows that high doses of inhaled steroids for asthma may in fact lead to weak and thinning bones -- a side effect that, until now, was primarily associated with steroid pills.The study also suggests that the more asthma patients used inhaled steroids, the weaker their bones became. http://my.webmd.com/content/article/23/1728_56862.htm
