... Asia (47.44%), and Oceania (30.51%). Most of the high-ranking medical schools globally are located in Europe and the Americas [44]; therefore, medical students in these regions are more likely to have rigorous academic requirements and pressure compared to those in other areas, which is associated with higher risk of poor sleep quality [45]. Moreover, medical students in Western countries may also have high selfexpectation to perform [46], and may therefore have a higher likelihood of poor sleep quality. ...

... The increased levels of GLP-1 and insulinotropic hormones from enteroendocrine L-cells help in the improvement of metabolism of carbohydrates, decrease β cell damage and enhance cell insulin sensitivity (Miraghajani et al., 2017). It is proven from many studies that probiotics prevent DM onset through down-regulation of certain inflammatory cytokines such as interferons (IFN) and interleukins (IL-2 or IL-1) or enhancing anti-inflammatory IL-10 synthesis in various animal models used for DM (Priyadarsini et al., 2015). The capability of probiotic species to coaccumulate forms a defensive barricade which prevents pathogenic bacterial species from epithelium colonization (Markowiak and Slizewska, 2017) is also reported. ...
