What Is the V-Go?

The V-Go is a simple insulin delivery device. You place it on your skin, press a button to insert a small needle, and the V-Go delivers insulin in the same way your body is supposed to.*

In people without diabetes, the body releases small amounts of insulin continuously over 24 hours (basal rate). The body releases large amounts of insulin (bolus dose) at meals.

The V-Go Insulin Delivery Device

The V-Go mimics the insulin pattern of the body, providing:

  • A continuous preset basal rate of insulin over 24 hours

  • On-demand bolus dosing at mealtimes

Continuous preset basal rate and on-demand bolus dose diagram

Continuous means the V-Go delivers an ongoing rate of background insulin that your body needs day and night. Preset basal rate means the V-Go delivers background insulin at a fixed rate that you don't need to adjust. On-demand bolus dosing means the V-Go can deliver extra insulin if you need it at mealtimes, simply by pressing two buttons.

Three V-Go Options

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 the 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. The V-Go should be removed before any magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) testing.
