Diabetes affects your health every day. Your medical care should do the same.

People with diabetes make hourly decisions about their health, but only see a medical provider every few months. Virta's care model aligns with the realities of living with the disease to help people get healthy.

Here’s how we do it.

The Innovations of Diabetes Reversal

Continuous Remote MEDICAL Care

Safe medication removal enabled by technology

Powered by technology and data science, physicians and nurses provide expert medical care, when and where patients need it, via Virta’s custom-designed app medical records system.

Individualized Nutrition Therapy

Effective and sustainable carbohydrate restriction

Our approach, based on a first-line therapy endorsed by the American Diabetes Association, is tailored to each person and controls blood sugar without medications.

Virta is transforming how diabetes care is delivered

We provide comprehensive resources and support so patients adopt our nutritional therapy

From enrollment to reversal to long-term health, we equip patients with the tools for success. Our dedicated care team and structured education in the Virta app make it easy for patients to understand how certain foods affect chronic high blood sugar.

Every entry of symptoms and data goes straight to our clinicians

Patients use their Virta app to log biomarker data (e.g. blood sugar) and symptoms, which is then made available to our clinician team. Our patients don't wait for six months to get physician review of biomarkers like in the current standard of care.

Information is intelligently surfaced to enable on-time medical decisions, including medication deprescription

Virta’s treatment changes blood sugar naturally, requiring medication reductions for those taking them. Our technology surfaces these needs to our medical providers who can proactively contact patients to deprescribe medications.

Why Virta’s Nutrition Therapy Works

We address the root cause of type 2 diabetes

Nutrition can address insulin resistance, the root of chronic high blood sugar, without the need for medications. Nutritional guidelines, though, aren’t designed for people who require metabolic repair.

Our approach is designed for sustainability

We don’t require surgery or ask patients to feel hungry all the time. Our approach uses carbohydrate restriction, a powerful therapeutic tool for people with type 2 diabetes, that lowers blood sugar while allowing people to eat to satisfaction.

Virta nutritional therapy centers on you

Other approaches fail because they ignore the vast differences and needs from person to person. Virta’s science-based approach works because we account for tastes, lifestyle, food restrictions, and metabolic condition, and meet each person where they are.
