What is meant by diabetes reversal?
Haemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) a blood test used to diagnose and monitor diabetes, indicating a person’s average blood sugar over the previous 12 weeks or so.
When we refer to pre-diabetes reversal we mean a patient who previously returned an HbA1c within the pre-diabetic range 5.7-6.4 returning an HbA1c in the non-diabetic range, which is less than 5.7. By diabetes reversal, we mean a patient who previously returned an HbA1c greater than 6.4 returning an HbA1c less than 6.4.
Managing your diabetes alone is hard. Now you don’t have to.
Approximately 1.7 million Australians live with type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes, and nearly all of them “manage” their condition with medications and carbohydrate-rich diets.
Diversa aims to completely change the way type 2 diabetes is treated.
At the initial consultation we’ll:
- Understand your goals
- Establish your medical history and dietary issues
- Order blood/pathology tests
- Discuss dietary requirements/allergies and food sensitivities
- Tailor advice on the types of foods to eat and what to avoid

Although there is no universally agreed upon definition for the reversal of type 2 diabetes, Diversa uses HbA1c to assist in defining diabetes and pre-diabetes reversal.
Type 2 diabetes reversal is when a patient who previously had an HbA1c in the diabetic range (>6.5%) returning an HbA1c in the non-diabetic range (<6.4%) (along with the absence of medications used to manage diabetes). Pre-diabetes reversal is when a patient who previously had an HbA1c in the pre-diabetic range (5.7-6.4%) returning an HbA1c to the non pre-diabetic range (less than 5.7%).
It is important to recognise that although not everybody may be able to completely reverse type 2 diabetes, partial reversal, the reduction of medication dosages, along with the simultaneous lowering of HbA1c, will unquestionably achieve a better quality of life and improve health outcomes for those living with type 2 diabetes.
