1. A glucose sensor module, comprising:

  • an exterior glucose sensor module housing without a display, the exterior glucose sensor module housing including a strip port;

    a glucose sensor strip connector coupled to the exterior glucose sensor module housing;

    a microprocessor provided in the exterior glucose sensor module housing for receiving data from a glucose sensor strip via the connector and for determining data relating to a glucose value based on a sample on the glucose sensor strip;

    a data communication module in signal communication with the microprocessor for receiving the data and transmitting the data from the glucose sensor module; and

    a mechanical clasp including a lip shaped to permit removable attachment of the exterior glucose sensor module housing with a lip engaging portion of an insulin pump having a data port;

    wherein when the mechanical clasp is removably attached with the lip engaging portion, the data communication module is aligned with the data port of the insulin pump to transfer data therebetween; and

    furtherwherein the microprocessor is activated to initiate one or more routines to determine the data related to the glucose value based on the sample on the glucose sensor strip when the microprocessor detects a presence of the glucose sensor strip in the strip port.
