Diabetes And Fertility: How Diabetes Can Affect Your Fertility

You’ve have been trying with no luck to get pregnant and have not been able to a find a reason for your infertility. You may have tried a fertility cleanse, begun eating a fertility diet, and are taking all the right supplements and herbs, but are still having trouble conceiving. It may be time to have a simple blood test to determine if your glucose levels are too high. With the rates of Type II diabetes rising every year in the U.S., more and more infertility specialists are looking toward this health issue as a main cause of some otherwise unexplained infertility cases they see. According to the American Diabetes Association, there are more than 200,000 new cases of Type II diabetes diagnosed every year, with another 2.4% of the general childbearing population suffering from the disease but not knowing it.

    Gestational Diabetes Oral Control

    ICD-10 gestational diabetes is classified as diet controlled or insulin controlled or unspecified control. It states that Z79.4 Long term current use of insulin should not be coded with codes from subcategory 024.4 Gestational Diabetes.
    So what is the correct way to code a gestational diabetic woman who is on oral medications to control her diabetes. It is not insulin controlled and it is not diet controlled and it isn't unspecified. Would you code the diet control 024.41- and Z79.899 Other long term drug therapy?

    I have pondered over this same question since we went live. When the patient has A2 GDM, but is controlled with an oral med (not insulin), which is the best code to choose? O24.419 GDM unspecified doesnt seem right since it is in fact specified. Any help from an expert would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
