1. A glucose monitoring device, comprising:

  • a glucose sensor for transcutaneous positioning under a skin layer, at least a portion of the glucose sensor in fluid contact with interstitial fluid;

    a memory;

    a data processing section operatively coupled to the glucose sensor and the memory, wherein the data processing section;

    establishes a communication range with a remote device when the remote device is positioned within a predetermined distance from the glucose monitoring device; and

    determines when the glucose sensor is transcutaneously positioned and initialized, and based on the determination, transitions a sensor status data bit stored in the memory from a first state to a second state; and

    a communication module operatively coupled to the data processing section that transmits the sensor status data bit to the remote device when the remote device is placed within the established communication range.
