@Timothy – How do you square Virta’s findings with the conclusion that “prediabetes is not reversible”?
Virta studied the effects of its intervention in patients with prediabetes and found that only 3% of trial participants progressed to type 2 diabetes over a two year period. Over half of participants achieved normoglycemia, with 75% of patients retained at the two-year mark.
I acknowledge that the underlying conditions that bias a person’s disposition towards T2D is not likely reversed and a return to an unhealthy dietary habit will return that person to prediabetes/T2D. But the fact remains that adherence to Virta Health’s lower carb protocol leads most participants to return of normal blood sugars, elimination/reduction of diabetes medications, significant weight loss and normal unmedicated blood pressure.
I think that @BBrandt247’s chances to reverse prediabetes are very good if s/he employs a system like Virta uses.
