In brief: Diabetes clinic
There is a fancy new gizmo that can perform somewhat continuous glucose monitoring without the need for finger sticks.
However, it is new technology and fairly expensive (and your insurance may not pay for it). Typically this would come from a doc who specializes in diabetes.

In brief: Clarify
A continuous glucose monitoring is gaining grounds due to advances in technology.
A port system to the abdomen is one that has shown reliability. Other potential advances may include using contact lenses or a dermal patch to monitor blood glucose.
