Managing type 2 diabetes with V-Go

Insulin and managing type 2 diabetes

The main job of insulin is to control sugar in your bloodstream and keep it within a normal range. To do this, your body naturally produces insulin, which is released in small amounts over the course of the day. 

If you have Type 2 diabetes, your body may not release a sufficient amount of insulin during the day or at mealtimes, which can result in your blood sugar being too high.1 Left untreated, high blood sugar can lead to complications such as blindness, nerve damage (neuropathy) and kidney damage.2

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.
