Is Type 2 Diabetes Reversible?

Is Type 2 Diabetes Reversible?

In medical school, Dr. Peter Attia learned that type 2 diabetes was a chronic irreversible disease. But is that really true?

Virta Health, a tech company, is actually reversing the disease in patients, using a simple dietary modification (i.e. low carb) and tech-enabled coaching, and documenting their results.

Here are comments from journalists, investors and advisors:

The ending of the last article above is fantastic. The journalist acknowledges that the results are really promising with people revolutionizing their health, cutting their need for medications by a lot and generally feeling great. But how will they keep it up, asks the journalist, when donuts are delicious?

It's more than a little condescending. Or perhaps it's the carb addiction speaking.

I believe hundreds of millions of people with type 2 diabetes would successfully decide to avoid a slow, medicated and painful death, when they know they have the option. Instead, they can choose a good life, with purpose.

There's more to life, after all, than donuts.
