1. A method, comprising:

  • detecting using one or more processors, an anticipated occurrence of a predetermined event associated with a monitored analyte level; and

    at successive time intervals until the occurrence of the predetermined event, outputting, using the one or more processors, an alert such that after an occurrence of a first alert upon detection of the anticipated occurrence of the predetermined event, one or more subsequent alerts are output providing a series of advance notifications as the occurrence of the predetermined event approaches;

    wherein the one or more processors is configured to output each of the series of advance notifications at each of the successive time intervals, where each of the successive time intervals between each of the series of advance notifications is temporally spaced closer together as the predetermined event approaches such that each of the series of advance notifications output using the one or more processors are spaced closer in time as the occurrence of the predetermined event is closer in time.
