If the documentation states the patient has Diabetes with Peripheral Neuropathy, can you assume E11.42 (DM with Polyneuropathy) or do you default to E11.40 (DM with Neuropathy)?

Per guidelines you would default the type to 2 .
The alpha under Neuropathy,
peripheral goes to then
autonomic then
idiopathic then states
diabetes code the .43
under diabetes,
with
neuropathy - E11.40 is the default code
