V-Go® Insulin Patch Pump for Type 2 Diabetes

V-Go is a simple, all-in-one insulin delivery system that is worn like a patch. It is designed to fit easily into your life to help you manage Type 2 Diabetes without multiple daily injections.

V-Go is worn for 24 hours and is changed daily, giving you the freedom to go about your day.

Make multiple daily injections of insulin a thing of the past with V-Go.

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 wear like a patch. No batteries, tubing or programming required.

Just Fill, Wear & Go with V-Go

Apply one V-Go patch pump, once per day. A steady rate of insulin is released over 24 hours (basal) for all day and all night glucose control. Then just ‘click’ to deliver mealtime insulin (bolus) when needed.1 No batteries, tubing or programming required.

So Discreet

Nobody will know you’re using it – even at mealtimes. There’s no need for a device strapped onto clothing or tucked into a pocket. It can be worn on the back of your arm, abdomen, back or thigh.1

Helps you Manage your Diabetes

Managing multiple injections of insulin each day can be hard. With insulin injections, remembering all of the supplies when leaving the house or removing yourself from the moment to take an injection can be frustrating. V-Go can help to simplify your life and help provide even greater blood sugar control than multiple insulin injections each day.2,3

How V-Go works

V-Go works by releasing small amounts of fast acting insulin continuously all day and night. With just a click of a button you can get additional insulin such as at mealtimes, without the need for additional injections.

  1. 1. Simply apply a filled V-Go on your skin like a patch, press a button to insert a small needle, and you are ready for your day.
  2. 2. Just click a button to deliver insulin at mealtimes. With each click for mealtime insulin, V-Go delivers 2 units of insulin. You can click as many times as you need for your mealtime dose for up to 36 units a day.
  3. 3. Wear V-Go for a full 24 hours, then remove and replace it with a new filled V-Go.

Frequently Asked Questions

For additional resources, please visit our resources page or contact AMSL Diabetes on 1300 851 056.

What about the needle?

When you use V-Go, you never actually see the needle. The V-Go needle in the device is very small (30 gauge, 4.6 mm) and its floating technology helps ensure V-Go is comfortable to wear 24 hours a day. The adhesive and floating needle technology were designed to allow you to move without feeling the needle. Most people do find V-Go comfortable to wear.


Will anyone see it and what if I knock it off?

V-Go has a slim design and low profile, so people shouldn’t see it unless you are wearing very tight clothes. You change V-Go every 24 hours, so you can find the appropriate spot that is right for you for that day, depending on your activities and clothing.

 

With proper application, the adhesive helps ensure V-Go stays attached to your body day and night. Plus, its low profile means V-Go is unlikely to be knocked off. The floating needle technology also limits any sensation of the needle, even if it’s bumped.


Can I shower with it on and wear it while I am sleeping?

Yes! V-Go is designed to give you insulin for 24 hours and should be worn during all your normal daily activities and while you are sleeping. V-Go has been tested in water to a depth of 1 metre.


Do I have to wear it in the same spot?

No. You should apply V-Go in a new spot at least an inch away from where you inserted the needle the previous day. Because you change the spot every 24 hours, you can choose the place that works for your clothing and activities for that day.


What type of insulin should I use with V-Go?

A U-100 fast-acting insulin* should be used with V-Go. Please refer to the V-Go user guide for more information or contact us on 1300 851 056.

 

*Consult your healthcare professional to see which product is right for you.

Yes, AMSL Diabetes will provide 24/7 Australian based technical support on 1300 851 056 for your V-Go.
