My Snap Insulin Pump by Asante


There is a new insulin pump on the market and it is fantastic.  It is called the Snap Insulin Pump by Asante and it really is a snap to use .  This pump makes life so much easier for people with Type 1 or even Type 2  Diabetes.  You do not have to put in batteries to it and it  is the only pump that uses glass cartridges of Humalog insulin.  They also say that you will never have any air bubbles in the pump  so less chances of having higher blood sugars.  
I have always have good A1C's but with this pump I think they will be even better.  The Asante Snap Insulin Pump does not say that if you go on this pump you will have better A1C's but for me I know I will.  I already have had to do some adjustments with my basil rates.  For me this pump is fun to be on.  My first time changing the insulin pump cartridge I was so surprised how easy it was.  You have three pieces of equipment.  The controller,  the Body compartment which is where the Cartridge goes in and has the battery to it and the Insulin Cartridge.  The body compartment is disposable so you always have a new battery .  You just put a cartridge of Humalog insulin into the Body compartment .  You then just put on your tubing to the Cartridge of insulin then snap the Body compartment into the controller  compartment.  Then you just prime then go to the screen for the Cannula and prime the Cannula and you are done.    The one thing that I really love about this pump is that you push one button and you are on the Status screen seeing all the information that you want to know.  I love love this pump.
They are having a special right now you go on the pump for a month free of charge, they give you all the supplies you will need.  They say that it could be less then a month to try it out depending on how much insulin you take.
You get to see if you like it.  After 1 day of being on it I  jumped on it.   I told my sales rep put the papers through I want this pump.  They are also having a special right now that if you decide to go on the pump  then if your pump is still under warranty  then most insurances will not cover another pump but with this pump if you are still under warranty all you do is tell the representative that you want to go on the pump and they will give you a form to fill out to trade in the pump you have.
this is what i did  then i just waited until the insurance approved everything for the pump supplies.    Your new pump will then be sent out to you .   This is only going on until November 24th for the trade in program.  The screen looks smaller then most pumps but it is really not it is bigger they use bigger font size on it.  They had someone that used to work for Medtronic tell them the things they liked about Medtronic and the things they did not like about Medtronic Insulin Pumps.  They took that information and made this pump.  It is as they say a snap to work.  Most people can wait until a week before they will have to change their Humalog cartridge on this pump .   I have a large dose of Basal rates so for me I made  it in 4 days but when I was on the Animas Ping I was changing out cartridges every 1 and half to 2 days.  My sales rep for the Pennsylvania area is Andy  Holder his telephone number is 610 999 6312 if you  are interested or would like more information about this pump please call him.  I am so thankful that I  took the plunge and decided to do the trial run for this pump .  I can almost say it is fun to be on this pump.  One more item of why I love this pump to see your status screen you push  one button and you have everything right in front of you.  If  you are a Type 1 or Type 2  Diabetic you will  want to be on this pump Call Andy today so you can get the information and go for the Free trial of this pump.  I liked it so much I signed up for it the day of training for the free trial.  I am going to have my new pump this week.   Andy Holder's telephone number to learn about and to go on the free trial of this pump is   610 999 6312.  I hope you will try out this pump.

Sincerely Yours

Ellen Gaffney
