As of October 23rd, 2019, we have exceeded 400 enrollments and therefore are not enrolling additional Veterans at this time. We are actively working with the Veterans Health Administration to evaluate the results of the pilot in order to determine future opportunities for Veterans to enroll in Virta.Check EligibilitySee press release
Virta's unique treatment can help bring blood sugar down to normal levels, without medication or surgery.
Your Virta Provider is your new metabolic health specialist, and will coordinate as needed with your primary care provider.
Unlike traditional healthcare, where patients only check in with their provider a couple of times a year, our team of board-certified providers provide around-the-clock monitoring and care. This allows us to safely adjust your medications and care plan in real time.
Your Virta Health Coach is your on-demand nutritionist, accountability partner, and cheerleader all in one! Whether you need help jumpstarting stalled weight loss, understanding your protein requirements, or just need a bit more encouragement, they are there to guide you to success.
Unlike traditional coaching services, where you only see your coach once a week or month, your Virta Health Coach is always just a message away!
Virta provides you with everything you need to track your progress, including a bodyweight scale that uploads data to our app automatically, a blood pressure cuff for some patients, and a meter with glucose and ketone strips, lancets, and swabs.
Unlike other interventions, the cost of your starter kit and refill supplies needed for Virta is fully included in the price.
Virta puts a clinic in your pocket, accessible to you when you need it most–no waiting rooms and no lines.
Our app collects your biomarker data, like blood glucose, blood ketones, weight, and blood pressure to help your care team adjust the Virta Treatment around your individual biochemistry.
Through a series of videos and games, you'll learn how to make the necessary dietary changes sustainable and enjoyable. The app also provides access to a curated library of recipes, guides, and meal plans fit for any dietary preference.
Membership to Virta's private patient community is included, but participation is optional. Those that choose to join can connect with other Virta patients to find support and share tips in a positive, moderated environment.
Tim was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes right after he got out of the Navy. 20 years of living with diabetes left him frustrated and depressed, as the weight and medications piled on. Nothing he tried seemed to work, leaving him tired and unable to do the things he loved.
Preston was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2016. Metformin and standard dietary changes didn't make things better. Joint pain, inflammation, and low energy persisted until he found a better way with Virta.
