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!).

Oh Snap, what a difference!

Download of CGM the last week of MDI therapy:

First week on the Snap pump:

OK, I know. There's still a lot of work to do, but it's off to a hell of a good start!

Wow, that's a big difference. Do you think any pump would have given you the same improvement?

Bernard, I think that any well-designed pump would have, but most pumps aren't well-designed. The menus on the Snap are so clean and simple it's not a hassle for me to really be on the ball. Some of the other pumps have so many "are you sure" screens that I find it not worth the trouble to make small adjustments.
