Hi ICD-10 Coders,

How you will code in icd-10 DM type 2 with diabetic Neuropathy uncontrolled? I coded as E11.40 for diabetic neuropaty and E11.65 for uncontrolled Diabetes. Is this correct? or do I have to use only E11.40? I know that in ICD-10 we do not have Uncontrolled anymore but the provider documented because the patient Blood Sugar was High. He did not say anything about hypergycemia.
