My son (12yo) has the Libre and now he got the Dexcom 5g.
My wife has the Dexcom Follow App on Android (OnePlus 6) and I have it on my iPhone XS.
So far we have encountered several problems and I will appreciate any suggestion/idea:
- In order to get alerts, we MUST turn off ALL silencing features (e.g. Do not disturb, Bedtime schedule). Now we get calls, text messages, whatsapp, etc. around the clock. Ho can I get Dexcom alerts as a parent but not all the rest during night time?
- I get only sometimes get alerts and some times don’t. Any idea why and how to fix?
- We understand it takes a week or two to get the Dexcom stable and accurate so we kept the Libre connected in parallel. But it seems once Dexcom was connected, his body is resisting both now
I know Medtronic uses SMS for alert which allows setting their number as Emergency bypass by they seem to have a whole line malfunctioning and thus we were not able to get Guardian Connect.
I know Libre has the MiaoMiao but I am not sure if it provides alerts for parents while Do not disturb is turned on.
Any suggestion/idea/recommendation for a parent who needs to wake up when sugar is low/high (but not from other apps/calls/sms/etc.) will be much appreciated.
