The first and only clinically-proven treatment to reverse type 2 diabetes w/o drugs or surgery

Virta is the first and only clinically-proven treatment to reverse type 2 diabetes without the use of medications or surgery, and our mission is to reverse type 2 diabetes in 100M people by 2025. We created a brand new, medically groundbreaking treatment based on the decades of research from our medical co-founders, and ran it through a rigorous clinical trial. Now we are able to reverse this “irreversible” disease in over 70% of patients, and the main difference is that we are treating the underlying causes of the disease rather than just the symptoms. Besides connecting patients to our world-class team of Virta Health Coaches and Physicians, our software uses machine learning, health data, and complex algorithms to increase patient health outcomes and scale our treatment far beyond the capabilities of the traditional healthcare system. Virta is a series C startup and we’ve raised $166M from top tier healthcare investors like Venrock Capital and Rock Health. Our CEO was a co-founder at Trulia and our executive team includes leaders from top tech companies like Doordash and Patreon, as well as successful healthcare companies like Paladina Health and Castlight Health.
