John L. has type 2 diabetes and uses V-Go
“V-Go is very wearable and fits into my lifestyle.”
“When I went on insulin, it was one injection a day, and it wasn’t working for me. It was not controlling the blood sugars the way it needed to control them. When I started on V-Go, in one month I went from 8.6 to 8.0, and then down to 7.4.* V-Go is easy to use and helps me be much more compliant with my insulin. It has allowed me to have the same lifestyle I’ve had.”

June H. has type 2 diabetes and uses V-Go
"V-Go became part of the routine."
"When I first started using V-Go, my blood sugar numbers were all over the place. After a couple of weeks using V-Go 24 hours a day, everything started leveling off and my healthcare provider was very happy—and so was I. V-Go became part of the routine. You put on a new V-Go one time a day and you’re good. You don’t have to keep needles and your insulin and everything. You know it’s already with you. It’s just so simple. I don’t have to do all of the calculating and figuring. I just do the clicks with meals, and I’m good to go."
"I was struggling to maintain my daily routine. I tried other things that didn't work, and my numbers were still not in line."
"She can wear it under her clothes, she can wear it on her arm or on her abdomen. When she needs injections or insulin prior to each meal, now she can do that just with the push of a button, instead of carrying around insulin syringes or insulin pens or things like that. It helps her with her struggle a little bit to make it a little more like real life." -John Sink, Physician Assistant and Certified Diabetes Educator
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 Disposable 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.
