I have a question that I should know the answer to but for some reason can not wrap my head around it this morning. I have the diagnosis of drug induced iatrogenic thyroiditis due to the drug amiodarone given by another physician for a cardiac issue. When looking up iatrogenic thyroiditis it says to use additional code to identify cause. Should I just be using the E code for amiodarone or the cardiac issue and the E code? or am I just over thinking this because it is Monday?

Confused
