Uncontrolled Asthma

Hi everyone. I would like to know is there any alternative to prednisone. I cannot take oral steroids because I have type 2 diabetes. I use inhaled steroids but it's not helping me. My asthma is uncontrolled for a very long period of time. It's almost 2 months since I have been using Ventolin every day to stop my shortness of breath, tightness in the chest, and wheezing.
