Patients who have to make regular adjustments or modifications to their basal rate during a 24-hour period, or whose amount of insulin used at meals requires adjustments of less than 2-Unit increments, should not use V-Go as it may result in hypoglycemia.
The views of these patients do not reflect the opinions of all V-Go users. Individual results may vary.
“When I have V-Go on, I truly forget that it’s there.” —Debbie
Debbie was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in her early 30s. She couldn’t get her blood sugar under control and was frustrated with taking insulin shots in the middle of the day. When her doctor told her about V-Go, she was excited to learn there is a simpler and more convenient way to get her insulin that doesn’t slow her down. And by switching from multiple insulin shots to V-Go, she was able to significantly lower her A1c to 6.9*.
“Wearing V-Go is like wearing a watch. I really don’t know that it’s there until I need to reach for it.” —Jim
Jim has type 2 diabetes but he won’t let it get in the way of his passion to serve his community. When Jim was taking multiple insulin shots each day, it was difficult for him to inject discreetly or even remember to bring along his pens and needles when visiting those who are homebound. Using V-Go gives him a sense of independence because he doesn’t have to worry since his insulin is always with him. Most importantly, with the help of V-Go, he was able to bring his A1c down to 7.0*. Jim wants to do whatever he can to be healthy, and V-Go is a part of that process.
