Probiotic supplements were added to the Probiotics group, as regarding CBC parameters, lipid, iron profile, renal functions, HbA1c, serum albumin and CRP; we compared the base line values and values after the end of study in both groups. Results: There was significant increase in hemoglobin in study and control group at the end of study P value <0.001 in study group and P value <0.001 in control group, also significant decrease in CRP in study group P value <0.001, significant decrease in HbA1c in study group P value 0.001 and significant increase in serum albumin in study group P value 0.039. Conclusion: Although probiotics significantly improved the inflammation and glycemic control in diabetic hemodialysis patients, it had no significant effect in lipid and iron profile.
