Yes, corticosteroid therapy may cause osteoporosis (more with oral dosing).

Long term usage of higher doses of inhaled corticosteroids (beclomethasone, budesonide, fluticasone(Flovent)) also have the potential to cause reduction in bone mineral density, which may predispose patients to osteoporosis.
