Your simple guide to basal-bolus insulin delivery with 1 insulin via continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) The V-GoTM Delivers Insulin in the Same Way Your Body Is Supposed To
What should I know about insulin? • Helps your body use or store blood sugar you get from food • Made in the pancreas and continuously released into the bloodstream • Released in small amounts between meals and while you sleep • Released in large amounts at meals Why do I need insulin therapy? • Your body may not make enough insulin • The insulin your body makes may not adequately control your blood sugar • High blood sugar levels may benefit from insulin therapy1 About insulin
Insulin is released in small amounts between meals and while you sleep, and in large amounts at meals How your body is supposed to release insulin2
TYPES OF INSULIN THERAPY • Basal insulin is sometimes called background insulin or long-acting insulin • An injection of a long-acting insulin once a day —Examples are Lantus® and Levemir® —For controlling blood glucose levels between meals and while you sleep Basal only Injection of 1 long-acting insulin over 24 hours
Basal-bolus Injection of 2 different insulin types over 24 hours • Attempts to imitate how your body is supposed to release insulin • An injection of a long-acting insulin once a day —Examples are Lantus and Levemir —For controlling blood glucose levels between meals and while you sleep • Plus a large (bolus) injection of a rapid-acting insulin at meals —Examples are Humalog® and NovoLog® —For controlling higher blood sugar levels when you eat TYPES OF INSULIN THERAPY
Basal-bolus with the V-GoTM (CSII) Delivery of 1 rapid-acting insulin over 24 hours • CSII is continuous subcutaneous* insulin infusion • For blood glucose control, CSII with the V-Go delivers insulin the way your body is supposed to • Basal-bolus insulin delivery with only 1 rapid-acting insulin (Humalog® or NovoLog® ) —In small amounts continuously over 24 hours (a preset basal rate) —On demand in large amounts (bolus doses) at meals • With the V-Go, you no longer need to take Lantus® or Levemir ®† *Just beneath the skin. † The continuous preset basal rate of rapid-acting insulin, delivered by the V-Go in small amounts over 24 hours, covers your background (basal) insulin needs. You should stop taking any other insulin injections with the V-Go unless your doctor or healthcare professional recommends that you continue. You should discuss all medical therapies with your doctor or healthcare professional and follow their instructions. TYPES OF INSULIN THERAPY

The following conditions may occur during insulin therapy with the V-Go: hypoglycemia (low blood glucose) or hyperglycemia (high blood glucose).
