    Hi can anyone help me on how to code this

    Type 2 diabetes mellitus with hyperosmolar nonketotic hyperglycemia

    am confused whether to use E11.69 Type 2 diabetes mellitus with other specified complication or E11.65 Type 2 diabetes mellitus with hyperglycemia; I cannot code this to E11.00 Type 2 diabetes mellitus with hyperosmolarity without nonketotic hyperglycemic-hyperosmolar coma (NKHHC) because coma is not documented.

    Thanks

    How about using E11.00? Type 2 Diabetes with Hyperosmolarity without Nonketotic Hyperglycemic-Hyperosmolar Coma

    I believe if no coma is documented, than you are able to use this code.

    Can't use E11.00 since there's hyperosmolar nonketotic hyperglycemia documented

    It will code to E11.00 the code indicates hyperosmolarity without coma it does not indicate without hyperosmolar nonketotic hyperglycemia so since the documentation indicated Type 2 diabetes mellitus with hyperosmolar nonketotic hyperglycemia, but did not state with coma then E11.00 is correct.
