Top Icd-10-cm Changes: Diabetes, Glaucoma And Macular Degeneration

On October 1, 2016, changes to ICD-10-CM coding were implemented. While all of the code changes applicable for optometry are important, a few of the major changes are discussed in this article. Diabetic Ocular Complication Codes The first major change in ICD-10-CM codes for 2017 is for diabetic ocular complication coding. All of the DM retinopathy code choices will now specify which eye is impacted. Several new codes for proliferative diabetic retinopathy were also added. Note that a code for oral diabetic medication use (Z79.84) was added and should be used when applicable. The existing code to designate insulin use (Z79.4) was retained. Keep in mind that not all injectable diabetic medications are considered insulin. If a patient is on both oral medication and insulin, both of these medication codes should be used. The new codes for diabetic retinopathy apply to all the code categories, but only the E11.3 code section is detailed in this article so be sure to review the other categories if you are using them for any particular patient. The other categories include E08.3, E09.3, and E10.3. E11.3 Type 2 diabetes mellitus with ophthalmic complications All of the subcategories under Continue reading >>

    Hello and Happy New Year! I've been on Keto since the start of December. I've had some bad moments (involuntary/voluntary cheats) at the very beginning and know that eating carbage isn't helping me and my health improvement goals and I have those desires absolutely under control. I'm not hungry so I don't eat which is something I've never experienced before! I love this WOE!!!
    Here's my current dilemma. I'm so stinking tired!!! All of the time! I can never get enough sleep! I read that if you're energy levels are low to eat fat. This morning I had some chicken bone broth with butter and coconut oil and took the kids to school. I felt so sleepy behind the wheel and I haven't felt like that in years. I came home and made myself some BPC, but I'm still sooooo tired. I added salt to both my broth and coffee. I feel nauseated and don't feel like eating especially since I'm not hungry and I always used to be hungry. It seems that I typically eat once a day and sometimes twice a day.

    What gives? What am I missing? I am taking daily vitamins, my high blood pressure and cholesterol meds. Do I need to also supplement with magnesium and potassium? I've been getting plenty of fluids. I don't feel like I caught some bug. Am I still converting to fat burning? Feeling confused but not giving up. Thank you in advance!

    If you started in December, and haven't been solidly practicing keto throughout that period, you are probably still experiencing keto flu.
    Yes, adding electrolytes can help with some symptoms of keto flu, so consider adding that (do a search for Ketoaid in the box at the top of the forums...that's one way to get them in). Some folks also take some bone broth, with a little added salt & fat, to help.
    Keep the carbs below 20g/day, sufficient protein, and fat to satiety. Keep doing that. If you go another month and still having issues, then you might look at what else to change.

    Fat adaptation isn't instant. And it takes longer for some folks than for others. You'll start to feel it once you're fully fat-adapted. Hang in there.
