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!).

The best things…

The top ten best things about the Snap:

1) Getting insulin for a meal is fast.

2) Filling it with insulin is faster.

3) And you don’t need to fill it up as often as you do with other pumps.

4) It’s lightweight.

5) There are no batteries to change (or spares to carry), nor do you ever need to find a place to plug it in.

6) It’s simple and straightforward to use.

7) Its alarms are loud enough to hear.

8) Bubbles in the tubing are pretty much nonexistent, thanks to the pre-filled reservoirs and automatic tubing fill feature.

9) The text and numbers on the screen are big enough and sharp enough to read easily, and…

10) You can use it in bright sunlight.
