Optimize DeliveryBetter Glycemic Control with Less Insulin
Optimize the Way Insulin is Delivered with V-Go®
V-Go Mimics the Body’s Natural Physiology1
V-Go is an innovative, all-in-one insulin patch that’s proven to deliver effective outcomes by providing patients with a consistent and continuous basal rate as well as on-demand bolus.1-4
The right amount of insulin at the right time.
V-Go delivers basal-bolus when it’s needed.
Efficient Delivery for Better Glycemic Control
Significant and sustained A1c reduction in a broad range of patients with diabetes1
Patients with A1c>7.0% at baseline who were sub-optimally controlled on current diabetes therapy1
A1c reductions with V-Go were maintained through 6 months1
Study Design: In a retrospective analysis of an electronic medical records database, patients with uncontrolled diabetes (A1c>7.0%) on previous therapeutic regimens and switched to V-Go were Identified. A total of 153 patients were evaluated. Of these, 86 were on MDI, 45 on basal only, and 22 were insulin naive at baseline.1,5
Proven to Lower Insulin Requirements
The unique insulin delivery of V-Go significantly lowered basal-bolus requirements2
In patients who switched to V-Go from MDI, basal and bolus insulin requirements were reduced by 40% and 48%, respectively2
Patients who switched to V-Go from MDI had an average A1c reduction of 1.2% over 6 months
Study Design: Based on a real-world, retrospective analysis of an electronic medical records database. Patients were adults diagnosed with diabetes mellltus, A1c>7.0%, and previously prescribed basal-bolus Insulin therapy.2
V-Go Demonstrated Reductions in Glucose Variability
Optimized delivery with V-Go improved glycemic profiles and time in range6
In a 5-week, real-world study using the FreeStyle Libre Pro, patients using V-Go saw a 35% improvement in overall glucose time in range6
Overall glucose time below range decreased from 8.7% to 6.6%6
Study Design: A single-center, prospective, pilot study conducted using the FreeStyle Libre Pro in a real-world practice setting was designed to evaluate a percent change in blood glucose time in range (80-140 mg/dL) from baseline in patients switched from MDI to V-Go. Patients were on V-Go for a total of 5 weeks. Seven patients with type 2 diabetes and a stable dose of insulin, with a mean age of 64 years and weight of 226 lb, completed the pilot study.6

Important Risk Information
If regular adjustments or modifications to the basal rate of insulin are required in a 24-hour period, or if the amount of insulin used at meals requires adjustments of less than 2-Unit increments, use of the V-Go Wearable Insulin Delivery Device may result in hypoglycemia. The following conditions may occur during insulin therapy with V-Go: hypoglycemia (low blood glucose) or hyperglycemia (high blood glucose). Other adverse reactions associated with V-Go use include skin irritation from the adhesive pad or infections at the infusion site. V-Go should be removed before any magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) testing.
