You need to acknowledge and discuss the reason for missing. Some people - young women mostly, intentionally restrict insulin therapy to lose weight. It's called diabulimia. They manage their glucose levels right before the blood draw so that their glucose is normal on the labs, but the HA1c doesn't lie.

dentist  I would say: "I understand why you are missing injections, but you're going to have a BAD TIME IF YOU KEEP MISSING INJECTIONS" +2  
alexxxx30  @dentist, I was searching for that answer as well, but it wasn't there so I picked C ahahaha +
