asthma meds and cholesterol levels

hi! anybody knows if taking corticosteroids (inhaled) can have an impact on our total cholesterol levels? my total cholesterol level is 185mg/dL. It's not considered high yet but i'm only 20 and i'm underweight. so i was wondering if high total cholesterol or increasing levels could be a side effect to taking inhaled corticosteroids. and whether i should go get a fasting lipid profile done!

thanks!
