Diabetes Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a syndrome characterized by hyperglycemia from impaired insulin production. Associated Risk factors: Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) Non-ketotic hyperglycemic-hyperosmolar coma (NKHHC) Late Complications: Retinopathy Nephropathy Atherosclerotic coronary dz Peripheral arterial dz. Neuropathy ect Insulin Normally, insulin made by the pancreas gives the signal to your body’s cells to store glucose from the blood. A person with diabetes body’s cells are unable to store glucose. Without insulin glucose levels in the blood rise and spill over into the urine. Excess amounts of glucose in the blood may affect many organ systems including kidneys, vascular systems, eyes and nerves. Type 1 Diabetes Type 1 Diabetes is AKA insulin – dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), juvenile diabetes or childhood onset diabetes. Hereditary accounts for 10%-15% of IDDM patient.

  1. IDDM Code - What code would you use

    What code would you use for IDDM and NIDDM.
    We believe IDDM to be 250.01 and NIDDM to be 250.00
    Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas on what they have been taught or told?

    IDDM is just Insulin dependent diabetes it does not indicate type I status.
    From the coding guidelines:
    The age of a patient is not the sole determining factor, though most type I diabetics develop the condition before reaching puberty. For this reason type I diabetes mellitus is also referred to as juvenile diabetes.
    2) Type of diabetes mellitus not documented
    If the type of diabetes mellitus is not documented in the medical record the default is type II.
    Therefore IDDM is coded as Type II (250.00) with the V58.67
