1. A glucose measurement system, comprising:

  • a glucose measuring device comprising a radio frequency identification (RFID) reader, electronics configured to receive one or more signals indicative of a glucose level in a sample and determine the glucose level based on the one or more signals, and a display for providing the determined glucose level;

    a circuit board;

    an RFID chip mounted on the circuit board;

    an in vivo glucose sensor coupled to the circuit board and in signal communication with the RFID chip;

    a memory for storing digitally encoded data representing a monitored glucose level detected by the in vivo glucose sensor; and

    an antenna coupled to the circuit board and in signal communication with the RFID chip;

    wherein the RFID reader of the glucose measuring device is configured to receive the digitally encoded data representing the monitored glucose level when the RFID chip is within a predetermined range of the RFID reader.
