More than 70% of the 24 million Americans with type 2 diabetes do not take their insulin home. For dedicated physicians like the Physician Assistant and Certified Diabetes Educator, John Sink, seeing how these patients struggle to control their diabetes has been a constant challenge. Existing methods of administration are painful, time-consuming and adversely affect the lifestyles of patients. In 2012, Valeritas presented V-Go, a revolution in the care of type 2 diabetes. It is a disposable and portable insulin administration device that allows the administration of an insulin background rate for 24 hours and on demand dosing during meals. Place the small adhesive device discreetly under the clothes, click on some buttons throughout the day and simply change it every 24 hours. Join John Sink and one of his patients in The Balancing Act to explain the revolutionary way in which this small device is restoring the lives of their patients and, at the same time, giving patients better blood glucose levels and levels. of A1C.
