I'm a teenager and honestly the pump is the best thing ever my a1c is down to 5.2. Some of them are waterproof so swimming isn't a problem like the Ping and the omnipod. I would recommend either the omnipod has no tuning and is easy to use. Omnipod.com will have stuff there and the Ping comes in a bunch of colors and has tubing but is easy to use and waterproof. The tubing doesn't get in the way that much but everyone is different. I do love the pump it has made life so much easier and more flexible.
