Insulin Delivery

  • Users fill V-Go with their prescribed insulin using an included disposable filling accessory called the EZ Fill.
  • V-Go is then applied to the skin in a discreet location like the abdomen or back of the arm.
  • By following the patient instruction guide, patients can then start the flow of insulin (preset basal rate of insulin) and self-administer their bolus doses at mealtimes.

V-Go Instructions for Patient Use. Valeritas, Inc., 2011.

V-Go is a simple, fully disposable device for the delivery of basal-bolus insulin therapy in adults with Type 2 diabetes. 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.

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. 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 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.
