Diabetes mellitus is a deep-rooted disorder characterized by hyperglycemia. It currently a worldwide public health issue and may be a burden to society due to its disabling and customary complications. Diabetes is multifactorial and also induces the onset of other diseases. Current review specialize in gut microbiota induced diabetes. Aside from digestion, the gut microbiota is vital in up keeping the optimal state of host health, mostly fewer Firmicutes, including Clostridia, Betaproteobacteria and the Gram-negative Bacteroidetes and Proteobacteria plays a major role in pathogenesis of diabetes, but it’s also implicated within the pathogenesis of various metabolic diseases, like obesity, chronic renal disorder, diabetes and atherosclerosis and intestinal diseases, like inflammatory bowel diseases and colorectal cancer. This review also focuses on new delivery systems like pump therapy, aerosols and new monitoring systems like continuous blood glucose monitoring, HbA1c measurement.
