Hyperglycemia ICD 9

Recommend to others!

Diabetes is a crucial condition. It may be caused by a low insulin level, if not a complete absence of the hormone insulin. As you might have already know, insulin is very essential in keeping our blood sugar level at its most normal level by allowing the glucose particles to enter our cells. However, in the case of diabetes mellitus, the amount of insulin prevents the entrance of glucose into the cells leading to an accumulation of sugar levels in our blood.

Hyperglycemia is the number one predisposing factor for developing diabetes mellitus and when we speak of diabetes mellitus, there are a lot of varieties on the table. Generally, there are two forms of diabetes mellitus—the non-insulin dependent and the insulin dependent forms. Apart from these general classifications of DM, there are also other forms of DM which diagnoses can differ depending on the cause and the complications.

To effectively manage and systematically categorize these diseases, hyperglycemia ICD 9 has been developed. The Hyperglycemia ICD 9 stands for International Classification of Diseases developed by the International Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems. Here are the major classifications of the diseases associated with Hyperglycemia and Diabetes, as well as their corresponding codes:

(250.0Diabetes mellitus without mention of complication- this is the “purest” form of hyperglycemia ICD 9 code—perhaps a Diabetes Mellitus which has just commenced.

(250.1Diabetes with ketoacidosis—ketoacidosis is a complication of Diabetes Type I most commonly due to ineffective insulin taking.

(250.2Diabetes with hyperosmolarity—this form of complication is common in Diabetes Type II.

(250.3Diabetes with other coma—other forms of coma may also occur in Diabetes and those which are neither related with ketoacidosis nor hyperosmolarity falls under this categorization.

(250.4Diabetes with renal manifestations—diabetes may affect the kidneys, most especially if blood isn’t able to travel down through the renal system efficiently. This may lead to kidney failure.

(250.5Diabetes with ophthalmic manifestations—retinopathy may occur with untreated diabetes mellitus or poorly managed hyperglycemia ICD 9. Unfortunately, this may render a person blind because of the nerve damage.

(250.6Diabetes with neurological manifestations—neurological manifestations from diabetes may result from dehydration, coma and the likes.

(250.7) Diabetes with peripheral circulatory disorders—peripheral circulation problems may occur with diabetes like numbness and tingling sensation in the extremities, etc. Delayed wound healing and similar occurrences may happen with Hyperglycemia ICD 9.

(250.8) Diabetes with other specified manifestations and (250.9) Diabetes with unspecified complication—all other forms of Hyperglycemia and Diabetes Mellitus fall generically under these categories and codes.

Hyperglycemia ICD 9 codes may not look so much important and essential—just a group of codes and numbers and the corresponding types of diseases. However, these codes are very significant most especially when claiming insurances and proving the presence of such disease to your health insurance or health maintenance organizations. Many health insurance corporations require a licensed physician in identifying the form of hyperglycemia or diabetes that a person is suffering from before an insurance claim is considered valid.
