1. A method, comprising:

  • generating, using one or more processors, a plurality of data points associated with a monitored analyte concentration;

    determining, using the one or more processors, whether a current data point of the plurality of data points is within a predetermined threshold zone, wherein if it is determined that the current data point is within the predetermined threshold zone, determining a rate of change of an analyte level based on the generated plurality of data points;

    determining, using the one or more processors, if the rate of change indicates a projected glucose value exceeding an alarm threshold within a predetermined amount of time;

    performing, using the one or more processors, a line fit analysis of a slope based on the plurality of data points associated with the monitored analyte concentration;

    asserting an alarm associated with the monitored analyte concentration when the determined rate of change indicates that the projected glucose value will exceed the alarm threshold within the predetermined amount of time, and when the line fit of the slope is not within an acceptable level; and

    controlling administration of therapy based on the assertion of the alarm associated with the monitored analyte concentration.
