Yep. In the doghouse. I take a sedative to get any sleep. BUT, the darn CGM blasts away all night (so the wife says) and she can't get any sleep. I have all the correct settings for 10:00PM to 7:00AM. Should I just turn the darn thing off? My numbers in the morning around 110 on average.
My sleep apnea is under strict control, that's OK. Would like to hear other experiences about this. Funny ones too.
I am guessing you are using Medtronic CGM. If so, are your CGM numbers accurate at night? I had lots of trouble at night when I used MM CGM, would tend to "flatline" at a low number so the thing screamed at me all night long and I finally would just shut the high and low alarms off which helped. You can try adjusting your high and low settings, I do that with the DexCom that I now use, the accuracy is much better for me at night with the DexCom, but I tend to sleep through the alarms (my husband does too, so I don't get in trouble when the beeps sound off every 30 minutes). But I adjust my high alert at or above 200 and crank the low alert to 70 - most of the time I stay above and below those numbers so nights are peaceful.
Now I'm wondering how loud these things beep. Are they pretty loud, or do they just seem loud in the quiet of night?? You know how every little noise at night sounds like someone breaking in?
No volume control on them either?
I use a MM 723. I'm a guy with normal hearing, and I keep it in my pocket. Some gals put it their bra, but ah, no. I don't hear it. If I put it in the holster, I will hear it, then someone says ("what's that?"). Medtronics should put a VOLUME control on this thing. That has to be very easy to do, since they already have enough bells and whistles on this thing. My 2 cents.
