Claudia was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 1992, and over the years, she tried a number of different ways to manage her condition. She tried weight loss programs, exercise routines, and ultimately medication, including pills and injectable insulin. All of this caused her to experience bad side effects and an overall feeling of frustration with not being able to control her own health.
The Virta treatment has helped her eliminate all diabetes-specific medications (including Invokamet, Tresiba, and glimepiride), brought her A1c down below the threshold for type 2 diabetes, and also lose over 40 pounds. As she continues into her second year on Virta, she is enjoying the extra energy and tremendous hope for a future of good health.
Virta is fully covered for eligible Blue Shield of California members with type 2 diabetes. Learn more at www.virtahealth.com.
