We all have things we’ve spotted on our Dexcom Ap, Dexcom Clarity or Dexcom Share that we know could be improved. A longer life sensor! Who doesn’t want that! You know people from Dexcom read this sometimes so wouldn’t it be nice to have all our suggestions in a thread?
So this isn’t about complaints, it is about how to make the Dexcom better for us to use. What we would like to see them do better. So pipe in with your desires of changes or your support for a change already listed that you want too!
The first one a longer sensor life.
The second one I’d like to see is a snooze button for the alarm. I realize I can change how often the alarm goes off, But I like to keep that at a tighter range just in case I keep dropping in certain circumstances. But I also know if I eat a hypo treatment I will stabilize or go up given a little time. Plus there is that very pesky floating around your set alert number by going up a point dropping 2 points that sets it off all over again. I have been known to just shut off my phone when it does this to get rid of it. And then what good is that?
So the Miao Miao has a snooze button I use on my dogs Libre all the time, it works great. I can set it for 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours. I can do a recheck in 15 minutes to see if it’s still going up or down, I can set it for 2 hours to know I gave her enough of an adjustment and it has started to work at least.
The third is the alerts for your high number is only in 10 unit measurements, why can’t we at least have a 5 point choice or better yet set the exact number. When you have tighter levels 10 points can be too much. I have my higher alert during the day set at 130, I would like to be able to lower that to 125 as 120-125 I still hit easily all the time. It makes a difference.
Fourth The numbers to be bigger on the screen. In the middle of the night when you are trying to peer at the number, it is a lot more difficult for those of us who wear reading glasses to make out the numbers sometimes. During the day for me I have no issues with or without the my glasses. The Libre in this regard is much better, larger block black numbers on a white background.
- A longer life sensor
- A snooze for the alarm
- Being able to set the high alerts in 5 unit measurements or better.
- Larger numbers easier to read
