    How would you (ICD 9) code HTN with proteinuia for a 74 year old male. I can only find for gestational.

    Thank you.

    Did you mean proteinuria? I can't seem to find a code for both together either. Maybe just go with 401.9 & 719.0?

    I too dont find any combined code for HTN with proteinuria .

    My suggestion is we can code these seperately as 401.9 & 791.0
