    I understand that the guidelines state "uncontrolled" should be coded as hyperglycemia. What about the DKA type 2 portion? We have 2 opinions in our office and I am just looking for the correct way to code it.
    I suspect for my scenario E11.65, E11.69 and E87.2. Please help.
    There really should be an E11.1X...LOL!!
    Thank you,

    Ketoacidosis is actually rare in a type 2 diabetic so that may be the reason for no specific code for it. So use the E11.69 with the E87.2

    Oddly, our physician's document it frequently. I will check with one of them to find out why we tend to have a higher volume.

Diabetes Mellitus Icd-10 Case Study | Practice Fusion

A 40-year-old male presents in his physicians office with complaints of new onset of excessive thirst, urinary frequency and fatigue. His physician ran several tests and based on the results he diagnosed his patient with Type 2 diabetes mellitus. The value of describing patient conditions with ICD-10 codes as compared to ICD-9 codes is made evident when comparing codes available for specific conditions. A common disease affecting millions of patients is diabetes mellitus. According to the American Diabetes Association, Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic diseases characterized by hyperglycemia resulting from defects in insulin secretion, insulin action, or both. The chronic hyperglycemia of diabetes is associated with long-term damage, dysfunction, and failure of various organs, especially the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart, and blood vessels. In spite of the significant prevalence of this disease, ICD-9 codes describing this condition lack specificity, resulting in the lumping of many patients into broad categories that are not as useful for comparisons and quality measures as ICD-10 codes will be once implemented. Patients with diabetes mellitus are most often described with Continue reading >>

    Has anyone tried to code DKA in a patient with DM 2? The 3M encoder takes you to the code for secondary/other diabetes and then when you try to code other diabetic manifestations you get an excludes 1 notes saying they can't be coded with other diabetes. My code book is a 2014 draft, so I don't know if this has been corrected in the 2015 version, but there is not an entry for DM 2 with DKA. I think the 3M encoder is wrong to code it as secondary/other diabetes, but I can't find another way to code it.

    Laurie,
    There is a Coding Clinic that addresses the type of DM with DKA. I have pasted it below.
    Diabetes mellitus with diabetic ketoacidosis
    Coding Clinic, First Quarter 2013 Page: 26-27 Effective with discharges: March 27, 2013

    Question:
    What is the correct code assignment for type 2 diabetes mellitus with diabetic ketoacidosis?
    Answer:
    Assign code E13.10, Other specified diabetes mellitus with ketoacidosis without coma, for a patient with type 2 diabetes with ketoacidosis. Given the less than perfect limited choices, it was felt that it would be clinically important to identify the fact that the patient has ketoacidosis. The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), who has oversight for volumes I and II of ICD-10-CM, has agreed to consider a future ICD-10-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee meeting proposal.

    Thanks, Lynn. If a patient also has DM 2 w/nephropathy (E11.21), I guess we will have to ignore the Excludes 1 note that says E13.10 can't be coded with Type 2 DM (E11.-).

The system will automatically load the item that you've picked. You may use wildcards '*' as well to find similar words or to simply save some typing. For example, tuber* confirmed will hit both tuberculosis and tuberculous together with the word 'confirmed' If you need to search other fields than the title, inclusion and the index then you may use the advanced search feature You may also use ICD codes here in order to navigate to a known ICD category. The colored squares show from where the results are found.
