I rely on my phone for all my wake up alarms, from the native iPhone alarm clock app, in the morning. I had noticed a huge increase in the frequency of my morning alarms not sounding ever since I started using dexcom (I have the G5 mobile app). I thought at first this was a general iPhone issue, but learned quickly that push notifications can trigger alarms to be silenced.
Any who, I do not always hear the dexcom notifications and so I’ve had multiple times where my alarms do not sound, making me late for work. Note- the alarms still go, as in they still show up on my screen, just don’t sound. So, I’m like 95% certain it’s the dexcom notifications that aren’t cleared that are the issue.
Is anyone else having this issue and if so, is there anything to do? Since it’s a matter of not hearing the alarms, it’s not like I can just be better at clearing the notifications or something. It’s also frustrating since I have alarms for bolusing (day and night) so it’s not like I can just buy an alarm clock and carry it in my purse everywhere.
