What kind of insulin pump should I get?
I am 13, and have been a Type 1 diabetic for 9.5 years.

The three most popular ones are the Minimed Paradigm, the Animas, and the Deltec Cozmo. They are all good pumps, most of the basic features are comparable. They all have their different cool features, so that will probably help you make your decision. I have the Paradigm along with the CGMS system and I like it a lot.Source(s): Pumper for 6 years

Depends on how you are paying for one. If you are depending on your parent's insurance you may not have any choices. My son is 16 and wanted to use an Omnipod but my insurance would only pay for a Medtronic pump. He's happy with the medtronic pump and has had no problems with it.
