1. An insulin delivery system, comprising:

  • an insulin administration system;

    a glucose sensor, wherein a portion of the glucose sensor is positionable beneath a skin surface of an individual;

    a data storage device to store glucose related information obtained by the glucose sensor; and

    a controller to analyze the stored glucose related information to predict a future glucose-related event so that insulin may be administered by the insulin administration system according to at least in part the analysis;

    wherein the controller is trainable such that when an episode of glucose related event is detected, the controller is configured to analyze the stored glucose related information to determine a pattern based on the analysis of the stored glucose related information, and to compare the determined pattern to a known pattern to predict the future glucose related event.
