Why ICD-10 codes are important
The ICD code E039 is used to code Hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism, often called underactive thyroid or low thyroid and sometimes hypothyreosis, is a common disorder of the endocrine system in which the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone.
If your thyroid gland is not active enough, it does not make enough thyroid hormone to meet your body's needs. This condition is hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is more common in women, people with other thyroid problems, and those over 60 years old. Hashimoto's disease, an autoimmune disorder, is the most common cause.
Hypothyroidism. Your thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in your neck, just above your collarbone. It is one of your endocrine glands, which make hormones. Thyroid hormones control the rate of many activities in your body. These include how fast you burn calories and how fast your heart beats.
Other causes include thyroid nodules, thyroiditis, congenital hypothyroidism, surgical removal of part or all of the thyroid, radiation treatment of the thyroid, and some medicines. The symptoms can vary from person to person. They may include. Heavy or irregular menstrual periods and fertility problems.
Code also note - A "code also" note instructs that two codes may be required to fully describe a condition, but this note does not provide sequencing direction. Code first - Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology.
The 7th character must always be the 7th character in the data field. If a code that requires a 7th character is not 6 characters, a placeholder X must be used to fill in the empty characters.
No Map Flag - The no map flag indicates that a code in the source system is not linked to any code in the target system. Combination Flag - The combination flag indicates that more than one code in the target system is required to satisfy the full equivalent meaning of a code in the source system.
When an Excludes2 note appears under a code, it is acceptable to use both the code and the excluded code together, when appropriate. Includes Notes - This note appears immediately under a three character code title to further define, or give examples of, the content of the category.
