Discussion topic: There are two major types and five categories of Diabetes Mellitus in the ICD-10-CM and therefore, many different terms and names are used to describe and label the different conditions.
Review the information in your text on diabetes including the “Guideline I.C.4.a. Diabetes mellitus.” Then review the National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse at http://diabetes.niddk.nih.gov.
Review a particular type and category of diabetes and find out more about it on the website. What did you learn? What is the code category (E8-13)? Try coding the full diagnosis. What does it tell you about the type and associated complications.
Review other student initial posts before posting your own in an effort to avoid duplication.
