When Kevin was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, his doctors told him that he’d remain on a battery of medications for the rest of his life. Then he received an email from his employer about the Virta treatment. Swier was skeptical, but enrolled just to prove to himself that it wouldn’t work. Within four days he started seeing results. His Virta physician reviewed his bloodwork and started weaning him off insulin. Within a few months Kevin had greatly reduced his reliance on diabetes medications, saving $6,000/yr in annualized out-of-pocket medication costs.
