Posted on Saturday, May 18, 2024

Virta is an online specialty medical clinic that reverses type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, and obesity safely and sustainably without the risks, costs, or side effects of medications or surgery. Our innovations in the application of nutritional biochemistry, data science, and digital tools--combined with our clinical expertise--are shifting the diabetes treatment paradigm from management to reversal.

Virta has developed a novel, team-based care model that delivers the Virta treatment exclusively through a telemedicine platform, with no brick-and-mortar clinics. Our clinical trial, which has already produced six peer-reviewed publications, shows that the Virta treatment has lowered hemoglobin A1c values under the diabetes threshold while discontinuing diabetes medications.

The American Diabetes Association has endorsed the core component of the Virta treatment, personalized carbohydrate restriction, as a first-line nutritional therapy for people with type 2 diabetes.
