We're proud to say we've just added a new review of the new and exciting Asante Snap Pump to our DiabetesMine Test Kitchen — where products designed to improved life with diabetes are evaluated by people who ought to know.
Now with a new feature! We're adding a list of Reviewer's Pro's and Con's to each video post, so you can get a quick at-a-glance sense of the reviewer's assessment. We'll be adding these lists to all our existing reviews in the coming week.
D-blogger and advocate Melissa Lee takes an in-depth look at Snap and explains why it's one of her favorite D-devices.
Melissa happens to be one of our Patient Voices winners from last year: a mom and active advocate who's had type 1 diabetes for almost a quarter-century. She likes the super-fast auto-priming and infusion set/cartridge changes with the Snap, and the fact that it offers a choice in how you calculate IOB (Insulin on Board) -- correction only or correction plus meal.
