1. An apparatus, comprising:

  • a power supply;

    an in vivo analyte sensor operatively coupled to the power supply to generate analyte sensor signals corresponding to a monitored analyte level in a biofluid when powered by the power supply;

    a memory unit operatively coupled to the in vivo analyte sensor and the power supply to store the analyte sensor signals;

    a data processing unit operatively coupled to the in vivo analyte sensor, the memory unit, and the power supply, the data processing unit generating data that corresponds to the monitored analyte level and a rate of change of the monitored analyte level from the analyte sensor signals, the generated data further including an indicator that one or more data packets of the generated data are corrupt; and

    a data communication unit operatively coupled to the data processing unit, the data communication unit wirelessly communicating the generated data corresponding to the monitored analyte level and the determined rate of change of the monitored analyte level to a remote device using a wireless communication protocol, wherein the remote device is configured to use the indicator to determine a number of corrupt analyte values based on a comparison of the received signals to a predefined range.
