Is 250.80 the correct dx code for hypoglycemia in diabetes? The chart does not state any manifestations and when reading the description of 250.80 it says to use an additional code to identify manifestation.

Thanks in advance!

no hypogylcemia is not a manifestation of diabetes it is just a diabetic not taking their meds correctly or not following their diet. We have always coded just the 250.0x code

Hi Debra,

Some Physicians are telling me hypoglycemia is DM complications. Even though patient is following RX mgmt and diet their glucose is fluctuating. If you find any guidelines please share with us.

Thank you
