1. A method of increasing the number of analyte measurement values related to the amount or concentration of an analyte in a subject as measured using an analyte monitoring device, said method comprising providing a series of analyte-related signals obtained from the analyte monitoring device over time, wherein (i) two or more contiguous analyte-related signals are used to obtain a single analyte measurement value (M), (ii) analyte-related signals are not used to calculate more than one analyte measurement value, and (iii) said two or more contiguous analyte-related signals, used to obtain the single analyte measurement value, comprise first and last analyte-related signals of the series;

  • mathematically computing rolling analyte measurement values, wherein (i) each rolling analyte measurement value is calculated based on two or more contiguous analyte-related signals from the series of analyte-related signals obtained from the analyte monitoring device, (ii) a subsequent rolling analyte measurement value is mathematically computed by dropping said first analyte-related signal and including an analyte-related signal contiguous and subsequent to the last analyte-related signal, (iii) further rolling analyte measurement values are obtained by repeating the dropping of the first analyte-related signal used to calculate the previous rolling analyte measurement and including an analyte-related signal contiguous and subsequent to the last analyte-related signal used to calculate the previous rolling analyte measurement, and (iv) each rolling analyte measurement value provides a measurement related to the amount or concentration of analyte in the subject; and

    increasing the number of analyte measurement values derived from the analyte-related signals in the series of analyte-related signals obtained from the analyte monitoring device by serially calculating rolling analyte measurement values, thereby increasing the number of analyte measurement values.
