Active Comparator: CHHS Standard Care – Delayed Referral to Nutritional Ketosis Intervention
All subjects will be enrolled in Colorado Heart Healthy Solutions (CHHS), which consists of community health worker (CHW) contact and sessions on: 1) cardiovascular disease knowledge; 2) Health behavior change through skill building to improve diet (e.g., portion sizes, increasing fruit/vegetable intake, reducing intake of sugar sweetened beverages, decreasing fast food meals, etc.), increase physical activity, and improve well-being, tailored to individual subjects’ risk profile and self-identified goals; and 3) Connection to services including primary care, mental health services if needed, and relevant community programs to address barriers (e.g. food insecurity, need for legal help) or to promote behavior change (e.g. free/low cost exercise programs).
Behavioral: Virta Health
The comprehensive remotely-delivered continuous remote care to induce nutritional ketosis combined with remote medication management is the Virta treatment, and while on this treatment, subjects will have access to Virta health coaches and licensed medical providers who will perform medical therapy management, health coaching, nutrition and behavior change education, biometric feedback, and the option to participate in a community for peer support.
