If diabetes with CKD and hypertension is documented, should we code E11.22, N18 series, and I10 or E11.22, N18 series, and I12 series (I12.9/I12.0)

Should we take linkage of CKD with diabetes and CKD with hypertension both or only linkage of CKD and diabetes?

Thanks in advance for any help/advice.

Per the 4th quarter publication of Coding Clinic, you should code both I12.- and E11.22 with the CKD code when they provider documents diabetes with CKD and the patient also has a diagnosis of hypertension.
