1. A device, comprising:

  • a housing;

    a glucose test strip port coupled to the housing and configured to receive a test strip having a fluid sample thereon;

    a processor operatively coupled to the housing and configured to determine glucose level information from the fluid sample on the test strip;

    a communication component operatively coupled to the processor and configured to receive a plurality of time spaced analyte related signals from a remote location; and

    an output unit operatively coupled to the processor and configured to output a notification related to a predetermined condition;

    wherein the processor is configured to generate output data based on the determined glucose level from the fluid sample, the received plurality of time spaced analyte related signals or both, the processor further configured to determine an acceleration of a monitored analyte level increase or decrease based at least in part on the received plurality of time spaced analyte related signals, and the processor further configured to enter a sleep mode when the communication component has not been activated for a predetermined period of time such that during the sleep mode, the processor continues to process data while the output unit is not activated.
