Question Icd 9 h/o

Can someone tell me what ICD9 you would use for history of gestational diabetes?

terribrown is an unknown quantity at this point

If the patient is currently pregnant and the record is documenting gestational diabetes of a previous pregnancy, then V23.49 (history of condition affecting management of current pregnancy) could be used.

If not pregnant but just noting conditions in PMH, then V12.2 (history of disorder of the endocrine system) could be used.
