What is V-Go Insulin Delivery?
V-Go is designed to fit easily into your life and help you manage diabetes by combining all of your insulin needs into one simple device you apply like a patch.
Designed to deliver insulin like your body does — gradually, during the day and night
What is V-Go?
Freedom to live without insulin pens or syringes.
Designed to replace both your long-acting basal insulin and your multiple mealtime insulin injections, V-Go delivers a continuous basal insulin rate over 24 hours that mimics the body’s natural approach to all-day-and-night blood sugar control. With a continuous, preset rate of fast-acting insulin along with convenient, on-demand dosing at mealtimes (bolus dosing). V-Go is designed to provide all of your insulin needs throughout the day. Studies have shown that V-Go provides better control of blood sugar levels than multiple daily insulin injections.1
V-Go provides insulin in two ways, similar to how your body provides insulin*. It provides a steady rate of background insulin over 24 hours and provides additional insulin at mealtimes without anyone knowing by discreetly clicking a button.
By using V-Go, you can live your life on the go without interrupting your day to gather supplies or look for a private place to give yourself an injection.
All you do is fill the device with insulin, clean the spot where you want to wear it, stick it on, and you’re set for 24 hours. It brought my A1c from 10.8 down to 6.0 in about 2 months. (Individual results may vary)CLARK, AGE 65

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.
