Here's a quick video tutorial on how to translate ICD-9 codes into ICD-10.

New Icd-10-cm Codes For Diabetes Self-management Training

ICD (International Classification of Diseases) codes are used by physicians and medical coders to assign medical diagnoses and report inpatient procedures. The ICD-9 code sets will be replaced by ICD-10 code •ICD-10-CM diagnosis coding which is for use in all U.S. health care settings. •ICD-10-PCS inpatient procedure coding which is for use in U.S. hospital settings. ICD-10-CM is for use in all U.S. health care settings. Diagnosis coding under ICD-10-CM uses 3 to 7 digits instead of the 3 to 5 digits used with ICD-9-CM, but the format of the code sets is similar. Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes will continue to be used for physician and outpatient services. It is important to note that the conversion to ICD-10 is not intended to impact payment levels, but claims could be denied if not coded correctly. It is not within the scope of practice of a diabetes educator to make a medical diagnosis. Diabetes educators may use this list to customize paper and electronic forms within their DSME programs to facilitate referrals for DSMT or MNT services and the development of super bills. Due to the large increase in the number of diagnosis codes in the ICD-10-CM code set Continue reading >>

    I have searched rexall and shoppers drug mart and I can't seem to find them?

  2. quality_time

    I get mine at shoppers. I ask for them from the pharmacist as they keep them behind the counter. I've also gotten them from the pharmacy at the grocery store - same deal behind the counter. If they don't have them behind the counter it's on order. Typically with the diabetic stuff.

    yep, Shoppers has them behind the pharmacists counter. In regards to how expensive they are, I combat that by cutting mine in half. They're still readable and instead of 50 you get 100 strips

Macular Degeneration 6 Natural Treatments for Macular Degeneration symptoms Macular Degeneration Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss, affecting more than 10 million Americans more than cataracts and glaucoma combined. At present, Macular Degeneration is considered an incurable eye disease. Macular Degeneration is caused by the deterioration of the central portion of the retina, the inside back layer of the eye that records the images we see and sends them via the optic nerve from the eye to the brain. The retinas central portion, known as the macula, is responsible for focusing central vision in the eye, and it controls our ability to read, drive a car, recognize faces or colors, and see objects in fine detail. One can compare the human eye to a camera. The macula is the central and most sensitive area of the so-called film. When it is working properly, the macula collects highly detailed images at the center of the field of vision and sends them up the optic nerve to the brain, which interprets them as sight. When the cells of the macula deteriorate, images are not received correctly. In early stages, macular degeneration does not affect vision. Later, if the disease progresses, people experience wavy or blurred vision, and, if the condition continues to worsen, central vision may be completely lost. People with very advanced macular degeneration are considered legally blind. Even so, because the rest of the retina is still working, they retain their peripheral vision, which is not as clear as central vision. Types of Macular Degeneration There are two basic types of Macular Degeneration: dry and wet. Approximately 85% to 90% of the cases of Macular Degeneration are the dry (atrophic) type, while 10-15% are the wet (exudative) type. Stargardt disease is a form of macular degeneration found in young people, caused by a recessive gene. Risk Factors The biggest risk factor for Macular Degeneration is age. Your risk increases as you age, and the disease is most likely to occur in those 55 and older. Other risk factors include: Genetics People with a family history of AMD are at a higher risk. Race Caucasians are more likely to develop the disease than African-Americans or Hispanics/Latinos. Smoking Smoking doubles the risk of AMD.

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 >>

The transition strategy, tools and resources ICD-10 simplifies coding of diabetic renal, ophthalmic & neurologic manifestations Just one combination code, E11.311 (Type 2 diabetes mellitus with unspecified diabetic retinopathy with macular edema), will sufficiently capture diabetic macular edema in ICD-10, whereas, in ICD-9, the condition requires three separate codes: 250.50 for the diabetes, 362.01 for background diabetic retinopathy and 362.07 for the diabetic macular edema. ICD-10 will simplify the coding of renal, ophthalmic and neurological diabetic manifestations, as most of these conditions, which require a minimum of two codes in ICD-9, are captured with single combination codes in the new code set. In fact, most of the time, the only additional code required when coding diabetic manifestations is that for insulin use (Z79.4, Long term (current) use of insulin) in patients with the type 2 form of the disease [I.C.4.a.3]. The ICD-10 codes that cover diabetes are found in Chapter 4 (Endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases) and range from the E08 (Diabetes mellitus due to underlying condition) to the E13 (Other specified diabetes mellitus) categories, depending on the Continue reading >>

    Unfortunately, biochemistry is not the kind of topic that can be easily researched online without formal training. There are a number of points you make that are incorrect. I keto myself, so don't think I am trying to attack your general position here.
    Starvation and the keto diet are actually nearly identical from a biochemical perspective. The key pathway is fat mobilization, where fatty acid chains are broken down two carbons at a time to produce energy. When this process starts to happen faster than your body can manage it, some of the chemical constituents of the process actually break down to become the ketones that can be detected in the urine and breath. In other words, ketones are a side effect, rather than a major player.
    The idea that a calorie deficit, ie starvation, is somehow bad, is incorrect. Anybody who is using diet and exercise to become more lean is doing the same thing. There is no magic method to lose weight without some form of starvation. The reason why the keto diet does not cause significant lean tissue loss is that the starvation involved is not sufficiently severe.
    An important point that you bring up is the idea that the keto diet stabilizes insulin levels. This is basically correct. Insulin signals cells to take up glucose from the blood, and also tells the liver to begin glycogenesis - the process of packing glucose into glycogen. High blood sugar triggers this. These effects are basically reversed by adrenaline, which tells the liver to start breaking glycogen down to make glucose.
    Part of the difficulty with this is that with a normal diet, blood sugar spikes after meals. This leads to cyclic variance in levels of glucose, insulin and adrenaline. As the cycle progresses toward the adrenaline end, you start to get cravings for foods that will once again spike your blood glucose.
    However, when you are relying on fat mobilization to make glucose, these spikes are greatly reduced. Fat mobilization is not efficient, and is not able to provide sudden bursts of glucose. It is more constant. This makes athletic activity much more difficult aswell.
    But this is the real reason why the keto diet works - it mitigates the cycle of spiking and lowering blood sugar, providing a more level and constant supply. This reduces the propensity for craving food.
    In essence, the keto diet is not unique in terms of the basic biochemistry of metabolism. It simply makes 'starvation' more tolerable, and easier to manage. For many of us, that is exactly what we need.
    Edit - swapped 'gluconeogenesis' with 'glycogenesis'.

    Insulin signals cells to take up glucose from the blood, and also tells the liver to begin gluconeogenesis - the process of packing glucose into glycogen. High blood sugar triggers this. These effects are basically reversed by adrenaline, which tells the liver to start breaking glycogen down to make glucose.
    Insulin inhibits gluconeogenesis (creation of new glucose), you probably meant glycogenesis (conversion of glucose to glycogen)?

  3. datums

    You are right on that one. The word I was looking for was glycogenesis. It can be a little tricky to remember that between glycolysis, glucogenesis, and gluconeogenesis, one means glycogen synthesis, and the other two mean glycogen breakdown.
