Virta Health Pilot Study Reveals it can Possibly Turn Around Type 2 Diabetes in Veterans via Nutritional Ketosis

A Virta Health pilot study reveals that 84% of veteran patients on the Virta Treatment for 90 days achieved glycemic outcomes below the diabetes threshold with a 53% reduction in prescriptions for diabetes-specific medications, including such drugs as insulin, across the population.

Type 2 Diabetes in the Veteran Population Problematic

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Type 2 diabetes affects 25% of the veteran patient population. Millions of veterans are living with the disease, and the number is growing

Promising Data Points

However a recent pilot conducted by Virta Health with the VA reveals that 84% of the veteran patients on the Virta Treatment for 90 days achieved glycemic outcomes below the diabetes threshold with a 53% reduction in prescriptions for diabetes-specific medications, including such drugs as insulin, across the population.

The outcomes, based on the experience of the first 104 patients enrolled in the partnership, corresponded with a two-year study published in June by Frontiers in Endocrinology that revealed dramatic improvements in type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients receiving the Virta Treatment.
