Hi all- When looking up hypocalciuria, led to range E83.5-... However, all code descriptions are for levels of calcium in the BLOOD.
Hypocalciuria is low level of calcium in the URINE? What is the appropriate code?
TIA

Hi,
Range E83.5- is for Hypocalcemia, which are low levels of calcium in the blood. Hypocalciuria is not listed in the ICD-10-CM Index. Have you tried looking under Abnormal findings? Something like code R82.998?
Hope this helps,
K

There is code R82.994 Hypercalciuria for hyper, but not for hypo, so best option is R82.998 Ohter abnormal findings in urine.
