After one year of treatment, patients who chose Virta improved glycemic control and markers of other chronic conditions. Tight glycemic control (HbA1c <6.5%) was achieved in the majority of participants with less medications, while losing weight, and without severe hypoglycemic events requiring assistance. Triglycerides, HDL-C, blood pressure, the need for diuretic medications, liver enzymes, and hsCRP also improved.Hallberg2018_Article_EffectivenessAndSafetyOfANovel
