Ep44: How Virta Health Online Diabetes Reversal Treatment Works • Dr James McCarter
By Gary Kirwan
Biotech entrepreneur and Head of Research for Virta Health, Dr James McCarter (MD, PhD), is today’s guest interview. James shares with us how Virta established the first online type 2 diabetes reversal program providing clinically-proven treatment and support from a remote setting. He also helps to explain how Virta can help patients suffering from other metabolic diseases such as prediabetes and obesity. We then find out some of the things included in their programme such as ongoing personalised support from a fully qualified physician, patient education materials, daily access to a health coach, and biometric health data feedback. We also go into discussing the Virta prescribed diet (low carb/keto), weaning off medications, benefits of nutritional ketosis, and the amazing results their studies have shown.
