1. A system for limiting use of a continuous glucose sensor to a predetermined duration of time, the system comprising:

  • a transcutaneous continuous glucose sensor configured to measure a glucose concentration in a host for a predetermined duration of time;

    a reusable device configured to display real-time sensor data from the transcutaneous continuous glucose sensor during the predetermined duration of time; and

    electronic circuitry configured to detect, by evaluating a signal from the transcutaneous continuous glucose sensor, at least one of sensor insertion into tissue of the host or sensor removal from tissue of the host, wherein the reusable device is configured to control display of the real-time sensor data from the transcutaneous continuous glucose sensor based at least in part on at least one of the detected sensor insertion into tissue of the host or the detected sensor removal from tissue of the host.
