1. An integrated system for monitoring and treating diabetes, the system comprising:

  • a continuous glucose sensor, wherein the glucose sensor measures glucose in a host for a period exceeding one hour, and outputs a data stream, including one or more sensor data points generated at predetermined intervals;

    a receiver operably connected to the glucose sensor, wherein the receiver receives the data stream; and

    a medicament delivery device, wherein the delivery device is at least one of physically connected or operably connected to the receiver;

    wherein at least one of the receiver or the medicament delivery device comprises a processor module that determines, based on the data stream as input, at least one parameter of a medicament to be delivered via the medicament delivery device in an automated mode that does not require user interaction to administer medicament using the medicament delivery device, wherein the parameter is selected from the group consisting of a type of medicament, an amount of medicament, a timing of delivery of medicament, and combinations thereof, wherein the processor module triggers a semi-automated mode when a potential risk is identified, wherein in the semi-automated mode, the processor module requests a glucose concentration measurement from a single point glucose monitor and determines based on the glucose concentration measured by the single point glucose monitor as an input value, at least one parameter of a medicament to be delivered via the medicament delivery device.
