The worldwide prevalence of diabetes was estimated to be 171 million cases in 2000 and is projected to rise to 366 million cases by 2030 [ 1 ]. Given current trends, the lifetime risk for developing T2DM is 30% in European Americans born in 2000, contrasted with 40% in African American males and 49% in African American females [ 2 ].

    diabetes and glaucoma

    We now assume a relationship between certain conditions and diabetes if they are listed under "diabetes with" in icd10. Under "diabetes with" glaucoma is not listed however opthalmic complication is listed. Which gives you code E11.39. When you look up E11.39 in the tabular it instructs you to use the additional code for glaucoma. So why is my auditor and coding clinic telling me that glaucoma is not one of the conditions to assume is related to diabetes. I believe it is, but it is being referred to as "opthalmic complication" and not specifically glaucoma. All of my internet research is leading me to this code selection as well.

    It needs to specifically state glaucoma in the index to use the "with" rule like it does with Cataract and Retinopathy. I do see where it says ophthalmic complication NEC but Glaucoma is classified elsewhere. I'd go with what the coding clinic states. There was some discussion over at AHIMA on this as well and "complication" would be the key word needed if the index stated "Condition" instead of "Complication" then you would have been good.
