Uses

V-Go is a wearable disposable insulin delivery device that can improve glycemic control by providing a continuous basal rate of insulin and on-demand bolus dosing with simple clicks.1-6

How To Use

The V-Go is a very small patch device that holds one day's worth of fast-acting insulin. It is pre-set to deliver one of three fixed and flat basal rates for that day (20, 30, or 40 units) and also provides a button that can deliver two units per press to help cover meals. The insulin gets into the body via a fixed steel needle about the size of a pen needle. You fill it with insulin and slap it on your bod. Every day. The V-Go is a one-day device, something that might seem ludicrous to type 1 pumpers who are used to changing pump sites every three to four days. That said, given the much higher volumes of insulin needed by type 2s, many type 2 pumpers on traditional pumps are changing sites and reservoirs every 48 hours as it is. Filling a V-Go is a snap. It comes with a pod-filling device. Snap a pod in at one end, and insert a vial of insulin in the other. Push a lever a couple of times to fill the pod. Peel off the sticky back, slap the pod onto (clean) skin, and simply press a button to insert the needle and start the flow of insulin. There's no controller to lose or leave behind. No batteries to change, charge, or fail. It's discreet in public, which is good. Using pens or syringes in public is a proven barrier that keeps many type 2s from using fast-acting insulin.
