Icd-10 Doesn't Have To Be Intimidating

To help internists become even more comfortable with the new code set, ACP looks at how the codes are structured and how to cross-walk from old to new for some of the most common ones. The idea of a new code set should be familiar by now to internists. To help internists become even more comfortable with ICD-10, this column will answer questions that ACP has received from members by offering examples of the codes for common diagnoses. Q: What are the differences in the structures of ICD-9 versus ICD-10 codes? Are the code numbers random, or do they follow some type of order? A: ICD-10 uses 3 to 7 alphabetic and numeric characters and full code titles, but the format is very similar to that of ICD-9. ICD-10 uses codes that are longer (in some cases) than those of ICD-9, following a basic structure: characters 1-3 will now refer to the code category; characters 4-6 will cover clinical details such as severity, etiology, and anatomic site (among others) and are alphabetic or numeric and character 7 will serve as an extension when necessary and will be either alphabetic or numeric. For illustration, here are a few brief crosswalks from ICD-9 to ICD-10 coding. In ICD-9, headache is cod Continue reading >>

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 >>

    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.

Diabetic Manifestations Coding DM Coding http://www.cco.us/cco-yt Alicia: Yes, the diabetic manifestations. I really enjoy DM coding, I don't know why. What are they and how can I recognize them in a chart? It's one thing to have diabetes but if you didn't know, diabetics tend to have other organ problems because it affects the entire body. And there's a few manifestations that you need to be aware of. The first one you're going to see is renal manifestations which means anything that's happening to your kidneys, your urinary tract. So your kidneys, your bladders, your bladder, not bladders. People with CKD or Chronic Kidney Disease, they can get that because they are diabetic. These are just... this microalbuminuria, that just means they're spilling this protein type thing. Proteinuria means they're spilling protein. And nephropathy, not to be confused with neuropathy. This is nephropathy so that's the kidneys. The labs, you'll see with people that have renal manifestations are going to be BUN, creatine and CMP. The creatine, you see almost always they're checking in diabetics. They're constantly checking their creatine level. Another thing you'll see is they'll be on dialysis. And you know, they wouldn't have to be on dialysis if they didn't have renal function problems because of their diabetes. And that is V45.11. You'll have to code that pretty often with... if your person's having dialysis. 250.5, ophthalmic manifestations. When you have diabetics that start having problems with their eyes, they get cataracts and glaucoma. Retinopathy, blindness. It's very common to have problems with your eyes if you're diabetic. And I remember when I was working for medical records, I went to work one day and I kept looking at the clock across the room and it was blurry. It wasn't the day before and then it was and it was just... I just knew there was something wrong with my sugar. And I went to the doctor and I was telling all the nurses. And one of the doctors finally told me, he said... because if you're in medical records, they're at your fingertips. You can ask them, you know? And they said you know, if it was affecting your eyes, if you're having problems with your sugar and it was affecting your eyes, it's already too late. And he said, "You know, you should just consider that it's time to get glasses." And that was actually the problem. But you'll see that they'll have eye drops. But you know, I was just telling them, it's not that I'm getting older. I just... I can't see anymore. Ophthalmic conditions or consultations that... if a diabetic is having problems with their eyes, say they're... things are starting to look foggy because they're getting cataracts, they're going to send them straight to an ophthalmologist to have that checked because the PCP isn't going to follow them for ophthalmic conditions. So you'll see these consultations. Neurological manifestations, 250.6. This is where you know, this is your nerves. So people who have problems, they're diabetic, they have... their feet ache, their hands ache. Their feet are always cold. They get tingling sensations and stuff. That is because of the neuropathy and that's... you know, in my opinion, that's one of the first things to go. Now I could be wrong but as I'm reading charts and stuff of geriatric patients, it seems like... if they're diabetic, the first things to start going is the neurological manifestations. But what some people don't realize is this gastroparesis, that you know, that is actually... if you break the word down, gastro is your stomach or your intestines and it paralyzes parts of your digestive system. And it's all because it's neurological. It's nerves. I just learned that at a webinar the other day. I had never thought about that.

Coding For Diabetic Retinopathy

For The Record Vol. 24 No. 17 P. 26 Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of long-term diabetes resulting from changes in the blood vessels of the retina. The condition may start with no symptoms or only mild vision problems, but it may eventually lead to blindness. Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in working-age Americans. The longer a patient has diabetes, the greater the risk he or she will experience diabetic complications such as diabetic retinopathy. Preventive measures include maintaining well-controlled blood sugars and regularly scheduling eye exams. Poorly controlled blood sugars may affect the capillaries in the eye. If a patient is admitted with diabetic retinopathy or has retinopathy due to diabetes, the diabetic code (ICD-9-CM category 250) must be sequenced as the principal diagnosis followed by the code for the specific type of retinopathy as a secondary diagnosis. The physician must state a cause and effect relationship between the retinopathy and the diabetes before the retinopathy can be coded as a diabetic condition. Diabetes with ophthalmic manifestations is assigned to diabetic code 250.5. Other ophthalmic manifestations include the foll Continue reading >>

    Been in Ketosis for a week -no weight loss? help?

    So, I've been only making Keto recipes / off sugar completely for 2 weeks. I eat less than 20 carbs a day. I feel great and look thinner but I am not losing weight. I test my pee and I'm in trace/ small / moderate ketosis all day long. I weigh 208 and have another 50 pounds to go. My weight is holding still. My scale measures fat percentage as well and I have lost almost 1% in fat and 1 inch on my waist and hip??? but no weight loss.
    I was on a calorie reduced diet / lactose free/ gluten free for the last 3 months and lost 25 pounds but that weight loss has stopped now...???
    What am I doing wrong?

  2. jamestorie

    You've lost an inch! Congratulations! The scale is a liar, you've done a lot of damage to your body and metabolism. Your body is in the process of healing. As long as you are loosing inches, don't worry about it. The weight will come off when your body realizes you've decided to nourish it. This is a way of life and everybody's life is different. KCKO!

  3. cansel

    I've actually read some people take months before they lose weight, so that's what I'm holding on to. There are lots of things that can also factor into it, not eating enough fat, eating too many carbs, dairy...but as @jamestorie stated, your body is healing, you can play with the possible causes, but don't give up!
