In ICD-10-CM, chapter 4, "Endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases (E00-E89)," includes a separate subchapter (block), Diabetes mellitus E08-E13, with the categories:
Diabetes Mellitus and the Use of Insulin and Oral Hypoglycemic Drugs If the documentation in a medical record does not indicate the type of diabetes but does indicate that the patient uses insulin: Assign code E11-, Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Assign code Z79.4, Long term (current) use of insulin, or Z79.84, Long-term (current) use of oral
Code DM due to underlying condition with hyperglycemia (E08. 65) as secondary. Rationale: Long-term (current) use of insulin (Z79. 4) should not be coded if insulin is given temporarily to bring the patient's blood sugar under control during an encounter.

SECONDARY DIAGNOSIS (ICD) is the same as attribute CLINICAL CLASSIFICATION CODE. SECONDARY DIAGNOSIS (ICD) is the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) code used to identify the secondary PATIENT DIAGNOSIS.
Abstract. Secondary diabetes can be defined as a diabetic condition that develops after the destruction of the beta-cells in the pancreatic islets and/or the induction of insulin resistance by an acquired disease (e.g. endocrinopathies) or others.
ICD-10 code: E11. 9 Type 2 diabetes mellitus Without complications.
You would assign ICD-10 code Z13. 1, Encounter for screening for diabetes mellitus. This code can be found under “Screening” in the Alphabetical Index of the ICD-10 book.
Identifying and Reporting Secondary Diagnoses It is up to the coder to identify the secondary or additional diagnoses. ICD-10 guidelines state that the entire medical record should be thoroughly reviewed to determine the specific reason for the encounter and the conditions treated.
It should be remembered that, your diagnosis—the disorder you are evaluating and/or treating—is considered the primary diagnosis and should be listed first on the claim form. Other supporting diagnoses are considered secondary and should be listed after your primary diagnosis.
Combination Codes: single code used to identify two diagnoses, or a diagnosis with a secondary process or manifestation, or a diagnosis with an associated complication.
In type 2 DM, the pancreas continues to produce insulin but doesn't produce enough and doesn't utilize it properly (insulin resistance). Secondary diabetes is diabetes or glucose intolerance that develops from disorders or conditions other than type 1 or type 2 diabetes or gestational diabetes.
The secondary causes of hyperglycemia include the following: Destruction of the pancreas from chronic pancreatitis, hemochromatosis, pancreatic cancer, and cystic fibrosis. Endocrine disorders that cause peripheral insulin resistance like Cushing syndrome, acromegaly, and pheochromocytoma.
Diabetes mellitus is more commonly known simply as diabetes. It's when your pancreas doesn't produce enough insulin to control the amount of glucose, or sugar, in your blood.
For gestational diabetes (diabetes that occurs during pregnancy) women should be assigned a code under the 024.4 subheading and not any other codes under the 024 category.
The code for long-term use of insulin, Z79.4, should also be used in these cases (unless insulin was just given to the patient as a one-time fix to bring blood sugar under control).
ICD-10 codes refer to the codes from the 10th Revision of the classification system. ICD-10 officially replaced ICD-9 in the US in October of 2015.
The switch to ICD-10 was a response to the need for doctors to record more specific and accurate diagnoses based on the most recent advancements in medicine. For this reason, there are five times more ICD-10 codes than there were ICD-9 codes. The ICD-10 codes consist of three to seven characters that may contain both letters and numbers.
The “unspecified” codes can be used when not enough information is known to give a more specific diagnosis; in that case, “unspecified” is technically more accurate than a more specific but as yet unconfirmed diagnosis. For more guidelines on using ICD-10 codes for diabetes mellitus, you can consult this document.
The more characters in the code, the more specific the diagnosis, so when writing a code on a medical record you should give the longest code possible while retaining accuracy.
Here's a conversion table that translates the old ICD-9 codes for diabetes to ICD-10 codes. There weren’t as many codes to describe different conditions in the ICD-9, so you’ll notice that some of them have more than one possible corresponding ICD-10 code. Some are also translated into a combination of two ICD-10 codes (note the use of the word "and").

A subclass of diabetes mellitus that is not insulin-responsive or dependent (niddm). It is characterized initially by insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia; and eventually by glucose intolerance; hyperglycemia; and overt diabetes. Type ii diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop ketosis but often exhibit obesity.

diabetes means your blood glucose, or blood sugar, is too high. With type 2 diabetes , the more common type, your body does not make or use insulin well. Insulin is a hormone that helps glucose get into your cells to give them energy. Without insulin, too much glucose stays in your blood.
Insulin is a hormone that helps the glucose get into your cells to give them energy. With type 1 diabetes, your body does not make insulin. With type 2 diabetes, the more common type, your body does not make or use insulin well. Without enough insulin, the glucose stays in your blood.over time, having too much glucose in your blood can cause serious problems. It can damage your eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Diabetes can also cause heart disease, stroke and even the need to remove a limb. Pregnant women can also get diabetes, called gestational diabetes.a blood test can show if you have diabetes. Exercise, weight control and sticking to your meal plan can help control your diabetes. You should also monitor your glucose level and take medicine if prescribed.

Hypertension concurrent and due to end stage renal disease on dialysis due to type 2 diabetes mellitus
The 2022 edition of ICD-10-CM E11.22 became effective on October 1, 2021.
Chronic kidney disease due to type 2 diabetes mellitus with hyperparathyroidism due to end stage renal disease on dialysis
Follow the instructions in the Tabular List of ICD-10-CM for proper sequencing of these diagnosis codes. For example, if a patient has secondary diabetes as a result of Cushing’s syndrome and no other manifestations, report code E24.9 Cushing’s syndrome, unspecified, followed by E08.9 Diabetes mellitus due to underlying condition without manifestations. If a patient is diagnosed with secondary diabetes due to the adverse effects of steroids, report codes E09.9 Drug or chemical induced diabetes without complications and T38.0X5A Adverse effect of glucocorticoids and synthetic analogues, initial encounter.
Secondary diabetes — DM that results as a consequence of another medical condition — is addressed in Chapter 4 guidelines. These codes, found under categories E08, E09, and E13, should be listed first, followed by the long-term therapy codes for insulin or oral hypoglycemic agents.
In patients with type 2 diabetes, problems begin when the cells in their body start to not respond to insulin as well as they should. This is called insulin resistance, which causes high blood sugar levels (hyperglycemia). The pancreas responds by making more insulin to try and manage the hyperglycemia, but eventually, the pancreas can’t keep up and blood sugar levels rise. Left uncontrolled, the disease progresses into prediabetes and, eventually, type 2 diabetes. This is the most common type of diabetes and is initially treated with lifestyle modification including a healthy diet and exercise. If these measures are not effective, treatment generally starts with an oral hypoglycemic agent. If better control is needed, injectable medications or insulin may be initiated to help manage blood sugar levels and avoid complications.
Report encounters related to pregnancy and diabetes using codes in Chapter 15 Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the Puerperium. If a pregnant woman has pre-existing diabetes that complicates the pregnancy, Chapter 15 guidelines instruct us to assign a code from O24 first, followed by the appropriate diabetes code (s) from Chapter 4 (E08–E13). Report codes Z79.4 or Z79.84 if applicable.
Codes for gestational diabetes are in subcategory O24.4. These codes include treatment modality — diet alone, oral hypoglycemic drugs, insulin — so you do not need to use an additional code to specify medication management. Do not assign any other codes from category O24 with the O24.4 subcategory codes.
Type 1.5 diabetes is a form of diabetes in which an adult has features of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. These patients have also been described with the terms “latent autoimmune diabetes of adults” (LADA), and “slow-progressing type 1 diabetes.” The condition has also been called “double” diabetes, because individuals demonstrate both the autoimmune destruction of beta cells of type 1 diabetes and the insulin resistance characteristic of type 2 diabetes. People with type 1.5 diabetes have autoantibodies to insulin-producing beta cells and gradually lose their insulin-producing capability, requiring insulin within 5–10 years of diagnosis.
Left uncontrolled, the disease progresses into prediabetes and, eventually, type 2 diabetes. This is the most common type of diabetes and is initially treated with lifestyle modification including a healthy diet and exercise. If these measures are not effective, treatment generally starts with an oral hypoglycemic agent.
