Evidence for a new category of diabetes care reversal


Published on

Virta Health doesn't just prevent or manage type 2 diabetes. We reverse the disease and restore metabolic health.

Virta Health delivers the first clinically-proven treatment to safely and sustainably reverse type 2 diabetes and other chronic metabolic disease without the risks, costs, or side effects of medications or surgery. Join us for this educational session as we review the impact of the Virta Treatment on metabolic and cardiovascular health in our clinical trial and nationwide commercial populations. We’ll discuss how nutritional ketosis combined with continuous remote care—technology-enabled and proactive, near real-time care from physicians and health coaches—is helping patients normalize blood sugar, remove diabetes medications, and lose clinically-significant body weight.
