Hello- i'm trying without much luck to find any guidelines on how to code when a provider documents "hypertension due to diabetes" I know that DM and HTN do not have a causal relationship and there are no combination codes to link them together.

One resource (see below) I found says you would code the E11- DM dx with the I15.2 hypertension secondary to endocrine disorders as 2ndary- I have not been able to find any other supporting documentation for this coding suggestion.

curious if anyone else has any input?

thanks!

Hypertension due to Diabetes

Great info! I also think we can use E11.69 and I15.2, if the documentation clearly states hypertension due to diabetes. Diabetes should be the first listed with addition I15.2

Thank you

We had a similar question that we sent to Coding Clinic. "Hypertension due to diabetes" would be coded as E11.59 and I15.2. Advice is below:
