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. ...
