1. A glucose monitoring device, comprising:

  • a glucose sensor, at least a portion of which is adapted for implantation and contact with bodily fluid, the glucose sensor producing a signal representative of a level of glucose in the bodily fluid; and

    a transmitter coupled to the glucose sensor so that the transmitter converts the signal representative of the level of glucose in the bodily fluid into a digital signal representing the level of glucose in the bodily fluid, assembles a plurality of data words into a data message, at least one of the data words containing data derived from the digital signal representing the level of glucose in the bodily fluid, each of the data words comprising a set of bits, wherein for at least two of the data words, the set of bits are organized into a set of data bits and a set of error correction bits, and transmits the plurality of data words in an interleaving sequence, wherein the interleaving sequence includes transmitting a first bit in each of the set of bits of each of the data words of the data message followed by transmitting a second bit in each of the set of bits of each of the data words of the data message until the assembled plurality of data words are transmitted.
