As featured in

Virta's Clinical Trial

Our peer-reviewed, published research demonstrates that type 2 diabetes reversal can happen fast—and our results last.

Decrease Medications


of insulin users reduced or
eliminated usage after 1 year

Reverse Diabetes


of patients reversed their
type 2 diabetes after 1 year*

Lower A1c


Average HbA1c reduction
after 1 year

*Note that % reversal is defined as the % of patients with HbA1c less than 6.5% who are taking no glycemic control medications or only metformin.

Lower blood sugar while taking less medication

Even though our patients were using less blood-sugar-lowering medications like sulfonylureas, insulin, and SGLT-2 inhibitors, their average blood sugar (A1c) was reduced below the diagnostic threshold for diabetes (6.5%).

It's not just type 2 diabetes—Virta improves other chronic conditions

Reduce Inflammation


Average reduction in hs-CRP
 after 1 year

Lower Triglycerides


Average reduction in triglycerides
 after 1 year

Improve Liver Function

Weight loss without low-calorie diets or surgery

Our patients quickly lose clinically significant amounts of weight, and are able to sustain or improve upon their initial losses. After 1 year, patients achieved an average weight loss of 30lbs.
