The number of patients diagnosed with diabetes in the United States is alarming and continues to grow. According to the American Diabetes Association, nearly 26 million people in the United States have diabetes,2 with approximately 4.8 million depending on daily insulin injections to help them control and manage their diabetes.3 However, more than half of insulin users do not achieve their recommended target glucose levels for various reasons, including injection pain, or the embarrassment of injecting medication in public.

About the V-Go® Disposable Insulin Delivery Device

The V-Go® is a simple, fully disposable device for the delivery of basal-bolus insulin therapy in adults with Type 2 diabetes. The V-Go provides a continuous preset basal rate of insulin and allows for on-demand bolus dosing around mealtimes, thereby providing an alternative to taking multiple daily insulin injections.

The V-Go is small, lightweight and worn under the patients clothing. It measures just 2.4 x 1.3 x 0.5 inches and weighs approximately 1 ounce when filled with insulin. Patients apply a new V-Go to the skin daily for one 24-hour period. The V-Go is not electronic, making it easy to operate and use.

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 a
