I frequently get placentas for pathology with a clinical description of Gestation Diabetes, on glyburide. I have been coded this as "O24.419, Gestational diabetes mellitus in pregnancy, unspecified control" because I'm not sure if glyburide is "insulin". Therefore, my question is, is glyburide considered insulin? Please help.

effective this October 2016 new codes like Gestational DM controlled by oral diabetic drugs (metformin, sulfonylureas [glyburide], meglitinides, etc..) will be added to ICD 10 CM

O24.415 Add "Gestational diabetes mellitus in pregnancy, controlled by oral hypoglycemic drugs"
O24.425 Add "Gestational diabetes mellitus in childbirth, controlled by oral hypoglycemic drugs"
O24.435 Add "Gestational diabetes mellitus in puerperium, controlled by oral hypoglycemic drugs"

Hello,

Glyburide can’t be considering as insulin.
The codes should be O24.419 and Z79.899 as Per ICD10 2015. It may be more specific in ICD 10 2016.
