close up of man checking blood sugar by glucometer

Viewing type 2 diabetes as a chronic disease is quite outdated. Instead, we need a paradigm shift in accordance with the latest science, where we start recognizing that it is a highly reversible disease.

Here’s a great article from Dr. Sarah Hallberg:

In doing so, we must be willing to acknowledge that there have been past shortcomings in both dietary recommendations and treatment goals. Our patients deserve the opportunity to gain control of their health. They want more than just another prescription or procedure. To help them, we need to change the dialogue. We need to talk about reversal and provide the knowledge and support to achieve it.

Man checking sugar level with glucometer

The new study conducted by Virta Health shows dramatic improvements in type 2 diabetes with a low-carb diet. Many patients were even able to completely quit diabetes medications, suggesting that type 2 diabetes is highly reversible:

It is something we would never previously have known was possible. I was so blown over by the results and we should now think about using this approach as a standard of care as it outperforms current treatment.
