Kristen has a busy life and a busy career in New York. Her job centers around helping others, transitioning the sick from a hospital setting to a skilled nursing setting, and making sure everyone has everything they need. While helping other people, she hid her own struggle with diabetes.

V-Go—a small, patch-like device. Kristen tried it and has not looked back since.
“There’s nothing short of a miracle here. It’s put on in the morning. I just can’t say enough about what a life-changing device it is.”
In the office, nobody ever notices that Kristen has the device on, and most of the time, she forgets she’s wearing it at all. When thinking about life before
V-Go, and how having to take shots so often interrupted her life, she says she’d have to be forced to go back. “Not in a million years would I ever want to go back.”
Kristen and her husband love music and go to a lot of concerts. They’re also active bikers and enjoy hiking trails in upstate New York. With V-Go, these day trips are a breeze—no more worrying about carrying a bag with multiple vials and syringes—just enjoying the day.
“I feel more normal. I feel like a person who can just get up and go. I don’t have to worry about having a cooler or a pen with me wherever I go.”
