Over time, high blood glucose can lead to serious problems with your heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and gums and teeth.

    Perfect code for Diabetic peripheral neuropathy in ICD 10 CM is E11.42

  3. AlanPechacek

    In ICD-10, there are several (5) types of Diabetes (E08, E09, E10, E11, & E13). Therefore, the correct code for Diabetic Neuropathy depends on which type of Diabetes the patient has. The most common types of Diabetes are E10 (Type I, Insulin Dependent, Juvenile, etc.) and E11 (Type 2, Adult Onset, Non-insulin Dependent, etc.). The most common type of "Neuropathy" in these patients is Polyneuropathy/neuralgia (E_ _.42). I would discourage using "Unspecified" neuropathy (E _ _.40) because it is too nonspecific.
