Diabetes patients may benefit from V-Go insulin-delivery device

DiabetesPro SmartBrief | Jun 25, 2015

A study of 72 diabetes patients who switched to using Valeritas' V-Go insulin-delivery device showed a significant decrease in A1C level from 9.6% at baseline to 7.7% at 279 days, while those already taking insulin experienced a 20.5% reduction in total daily insulin dose after switching. In another study of 151 patients, those who switched to the device experienced A1C level reductions at average percentage point of 0.8 at six months for those who started out at 7.2% to 8.9% and 3.2 for those who started at 10.5% to 13.9%. Both studies were presented at the American Diabetes Association's Scientific Sessions. Medscape (free registration) (06/24)
