LifeAfterDx--Diabetes Uncensored

Hi! I’m William “Lee” Dubois (called either Wil or Lee, depending what part of the internet you’re on). I’m a diabetes columnist and the author of four books about diabetes that have collectively won 16 national and international book awards. (Hey, if you can’t brag about yourself on your own blog, where can you??) I have the great good fortune to pen the edgy Dear Abby-style advice column every Saturday at Diabetes Mine; write the Diabetes Simplified column for dLife; and am one of the ShareCare diabetes experts. My work also appears in Diabetic Living and Diabetes Self-Management magazines. In addition to writing, I’ve spent the last half-dozen years running the diabetes education program for a rural non-profit clinic in the mountains of New Mexico. Don’t worry, I’ll get some rest after the cure. LifeAfterDx is my personal home base, where I get to say what and how I feel about diabetes and… you know… life, free from the red pens of editors (all of whom I adore, of course!).

Decision time

While no pump system is perfect, in my opinion, the Snap is the best insulin pump system on the market in the USA today. If I can get my health insurance to cover the bodies, the sets, and the insulin, I’ll retire my t:slim in two seconds and switch to the Snap. Why? Because what matters to me most in an insulin pump is speed and simplicity. And Snap gives me both.

The Snap really is a snap to use. I guess Asante chose a good name for it after all.

Next time: Back to our regularly scheduled diabetes rants.

I hear you on this one! I'd love to switch the snap. Having the right testing supplies really makes all the difference in my day to day life. I could never imagine going back to the days before I found freestyle lite test strips.
