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 slow the progression of type 2 diabetes, often through the use of more medications.

How does Virta help type 2 diabetes go away?

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.
