    I'd code Chronic Kidney Disease requiring chronic dialysis which happens to be the same code as ESRD - apparently.
    using Volume 2, Alphabetic Index - looking up:
    Disease
    kidney
    finding "chronic" 585.9
    requiring chronic dialysis 585.6

    Also looking up under:
    Disease
    renal
    end-stage 585.6

    same code "585.6" now, DOUBLE checking via the Volume 1 TABULAR LIST looking under 585.6 it appears that
    End stage renal disease AND Crhonic kidney disease requiring chronic dialysis are the same code - 585.6.

    Of course I am assuming that they are receiving chronic dialysis..(on going).
