Michelle G. – “I have noticed significant improvement in terms of stamina and being able to move my body”

↓ 5.3 HbA1c ↓ 32 kgs in 6 months

“Before becoming a Diversa Health member, I used to work very long hours and suffered from an eating disorder. This led to knee pain and that made me feel older than I am. A lot of my challenges were at the start, especially in trying to figure out how to eat healthy. Just that part was really hard. I was still addicted to the carbs and it took a lot to move away from that.”

“I was really active and would go to the pool but I used to feel exhausted after swimming just 500 metres. After losing weight I could swim 700 metres without feeling spent. I have noticed significant improvement in terms of stamina and being able to move my body.”

Maureen T. – “I’ve discontinued taking my meds and now have more energy than I know what to do with”

↓ 6.4 HbA1c ↓ 24 kgs in 6 months

“Grief had become a big part of the past 12 months. I watched as my adult children grieved the loss of their father and my much loved brother died. It set me on a spiral of overindulging on the wrong food and I entered a state of deep sadness.  The critical moment for me was having my blood results reveal that I had an HbA1c of 12.6. It felt soul crushing. My brother, a doctor, understood that I had lost confidence in my ability to manage my diabetes and wanted to support me. He sent me a clip of Dr. Szabo and the next day I contacted Diversa. That was in December”.

“Here I am in May of 2021. My HbA1c is now only 6.2, I’ve lost 24 kgs, I’ve discontinued taking insulin and gliclazide, and have more energy than I know what to do with. I’m now always walking and people have seen the difference. My same brother often remarks that it simply isn’t the case that people accomplish what I have in reversing my diabetes in such a short time and is so supportive about the effects of a low carbohydrate lifestyle.”

Tania P. – “I’m glad for the freedom I have gained in obtaining clarity on what works for my body”

↓ 1.2 HbA1c ↓ 10 kgs in 7 months

“I’ll never forget when my GP, who I had had been seeing for 29 years, gave me the news. The impact of diabetes had never been far from my mind. My own father had passed away from complications of type 2 diabetes and my mother-in-law had been blinded and couldn’t walk because of it.”

“I felt I had generally been a disciplined person who looked after myself, usually stayed away from sweets, and did everything I could to avoid any form of medication.” She set out to find a doctor who was an expert on a low carb high fat lifestyle, which led her to Diversa.

“Three months after my diagnosis, I had officially reversed my diabetes by improving my HbA1c from 7.3% to 6.4% and was off my diabetes medications. By month 7, I had further reduced my HbA1c to 6.1 and had lost a total of 10 kgs.

Why Diversa works.

Carbohydrates increase blood sugar levels more than proteins or fats, and so can be particularly harmful for people with diabetes – who have difficulty keeping their blood sugars in a healthy range.

Over time, eating a diet low in carbohydrates leads to better blood sugar control, and so less medication… and, in many people, the reversal of type 2 diabetes altogether.

Delve deeper into the science

Stop eating low carb-ish. Time to be serious about your health.

Our patients find it frustrating when people assume their weight is due to laziness or a lack of willpower. They’ve often tried it all, but so far nothing has worked.

But Diversa’s nutritional and medical therapy won’t leave you hungry. That’s because we use the best available evidence on low carbohydrate and ketogenic living: building personalised diet plans based on whole foods, keeping you full and satisfied for longer.

How would you like to feel younger?

Low carbohydrate eating isn’t just about losing weight or reversing chronic disease: low carb is a lifestyle with wide ranging benefits.

The evidence is clear: low carbohydrate and ketogenic diets have positive effects on cholesterol readings and hormone levels, reduce chronic inflammation, provide sustained and even energy, and burn off harmful belly fat. That’s why at Diversa, we can not only reduce your risk of chronic disease, but we can also help you look and feel younger and improve your athletic performance.

At Diversa, we aim to turn the tide on Australia’s epidemic of diet related chronic diseases.

Living with diabetes is hard, so we’ve developed a new way to treat and reverse it


Following a low carb diet halts the progression of pre-diabetes into type 2 diabetes (and prevents you from developing pre-diabetes, in the first place)


Get your blood sugar under control – low carbohydrate eating means fewer swings between blood sugar highs & lows.


Eating fewer carbohydrates means reversing insulin resistance: so you’ll need less medication (including insulin) and have your symptoms reduce.

As seen in


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 (>6.4%) 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.
