This article is being reposted with the new Tandem update on their trade-in offer for the Asante insulin pump users.
If you are a Snap insulin pump user, Asante’s closure could have you scrambling, wondering what your next step is.
As a former insulin pump distributor, I know how important choice is when it comes to selecting any one medical device. For this reason, I have reached out to the insulin pump companies and asked them if they can offer you a choice, in purchasing their pump since trade-ins are a common business practice.
All the insulin pump companies did a nice job stepping in to help in your transition. Animas, Insulet, Medtronic, Roche, and Tandem have a special offer just for you.
You might want to look at our annual insulin pump chart to help you decide which pump suits you best, by comparing the different features. Here is a link for your convenience, – https://www.diabeteshealth.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Pumps.pdf.
The next insulin pump chart will be updated at the end of this year.
