1. An analyte monitoring system, comprising:

  • a first sensor, at least a portion of which is positionable in the body of a person, and including at least one electrode with an analyte-responsive enzyme associated therewith;

    a second sensor, at least a portion of which is positionable in the body of the person, and including at least one electrode with an analyte-responsive enzyme associated therewith;

    a data processing unit to receive data from the first and second sensors and programmed to verify the data validity; and

    a medication delivery unit in communication with the data processing unit;

    wherein when a predetermined physiological condition is detected, the data processing unit is configured to analyze data from the first or second sensor over a predetermined time period, and to determine one or more patterns associated with the detected predetermined physiological condition based on the stored data, and to predict an occurrence of a future episode associated with the physiological condition based on the determined one or more patterns; and

    furtherwherein the data processing unit is trainable to modify medication delivery based on the predicted occurrence of the future episode associated with the physiological condition.
