Kevin, Virta patient

Kevin regained his energy while eliminating insulin and saving $500/month

"I feel the best I've felt in 15 years. I'm able to focus more. I am a better employee, simply because I have better health. It's given me back a quality of life that I never thought I would be able to enjoy again."
Kristina, Virta Member

Kristina rediscovered her potential through better health

"In just a few months, my A1c came down to a controlled level of 5.5% and I lost 65 pounds. My cholesterol levels improved, and my BMI is in the normal range — something that I haven't seen since I was a teenager. I am the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been."

Donnie reduced his medications in a matter of weeks

"I started with an A1c of around 11% with medications, and my latest results from last week showed that it had come down to around 6%, just 10 weeks of being on Virta. When I saw that number, I honestly could not believe it, especially since Virta has also helped me cut down on the number of diabetes prescriptions I needed."

Frequently Asked Questions

Can type 2 diabetes be reversed?

Yes. The aim of diabetes reversal is to lower blood sugar to normal levels through nutrition, while reducing and even eliminating the need for medications, including insulin. In contrast, diabetes management is designed to lower blood sugar through the use of medications.

How does Virta help people reverse type 2 diabetes?

Many people with type 2 diabetes have insulin resistance and are carbohydrate intolerant which leads to high blood sugar. To reverse type 2 diabetes, Virta medical providers and health coaches guide patients through a personalized nutrition plan that reduces carbohydrate intake, while consuming moderate amounts of protein and fat. Our clinical team delivers care remotely, and is available whenever and wherever patients need care via an easy-to-use smartphone application. As our patients' health improves, Virta doctors safely eliminate medications. Virta patients have the continued support of their clinical team to make results last.

Virta's approach is science- and evidence-based. Our research is cited in the American Diabetes Association's Standards in Medical Care for Diabetes, with specific reference to achieving blood sugar control while eliminating the need for diabetes medications.

No. When Virta is a fully covered benefit by your employer, you pay nothing. There are no co-pays. From the supplies to the expert medical care and health coaching, you get it all at no cost to you.
