FRISCO, Texas (June 23, 2022) - DialCare is excited to announce it is the first telehealth company to team up with Type 2 diabetes reversal leader Virta Health. Through this partnership, DialCare will offer Virta's treatment—that helps patients reverse their diabetes through a combination of individualized nutrition therapy and continuous remote care—furthering DialCare's mission to provide affordable access to care for its clients and customers. The new virtual health service provides resources to help address the growing diabetes epidemic, which affects more than 34 million Americans according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Formed in 2015, DialCare offers several telehealth solutions including a Physician Access program, a Mental Wellness program available to individuals of all ages which includes a student-focused program for middle and high school students called Dialogue, a Teledentistry program and a Virtual Veterinary program. DialCare's telehealth programs are available to organizations of any size or industry, employees of any status and individual consumers nationwide.
Type 2 diabetes has traditionally been treated as a chronic, progressive disease, too often leading to serious health problems, such as heart disease, vision loss and kidney disease. In contrast, Virta's first-of- its-kind Type 2 diabetes treatment helps people reverse their condition: combining personalized nutrition and virtual care, Virta patients can achieve normal blood sugar without medications. In the company's peer-reviewed clinical trial results, 94% of patients using insulin decrease or eliminate their dosage at one year. 63% of all prescriptions are eliminated at one year (improved to 67% at year two) and patients see sustained 12% weight loss. This unique diabetes reversal treatment through Virta further expands DialCare's virtual health solutions for its diverse client base nationally.
"Diabetes is a debilitating medical condition that affects so many people throughout the nation," said Jeremy Hedrick, DialCare President. "DialCare is pleased to be able to offer Virta's innovative program to enable our members living with Type 2 diabetes to take the necessary steps to improve their health and decrease or eliminate diabetes-specific medications."
"With over half of Americans suffering from metabolic disease, it's no surprise employers and patients alike are eager for easy access to world-class diabetes treatment," said Kevin Kumler, President at Virta Health. "By offering Virta's virtual diabetes reversal treatment, DialCare is addressing the diabetes epidemic head-on."
Through Virta's relationship with DialCare, virtual Type 2 diabetes reversal treatment is available to organizations of any size and sector. DialCare plans to immediately offer Virta in its custom packages that also include its comprehensive telehealth programs available to its clients throughout the U.S.
