1. An analyte monitoring system, comprising:

  • an analyte sensor;

    a housing;

    a telephone interface;

    a processor operatively coupled to the housing and in communication with the telephone interface, the processor configured to receive one or more analyte related signals from the analyte sensor and to determine an acceleration of the rate in the increase or decrease in the monitored analyte level based on the received one or more analyte related signals from the analyte sensor;

    an output unit coupled to the housing and in signal communication with the processor, the output unit configured to output information associated with analyte related signals; and

    a drug administration system configured to receive a drug administration protocol from the processor;

    wherein when a physiological condition is detected, the processor is configured to analyze the received one or more analyte related signals to predict an occurrence of a future episode associated with the physiological condition; and

    wherein the processor is trainable to modify the drug administration protocol based on the predicted occurrence of the future episode associated with the physiological condition.
