    Thanks,
    Refeeding syndrome is a syndrome consisting of metabolic disturbances that occur as a result of reinstitution of nutrition to patients who are starved or severely malnourished.[1] Renourishment is the process of avoiding refeeding syndrome. The syndrome was first described after the Second World War in prisoners of war taken by Japan.[2]


    How about 277.89 specified disorder of metabolism.

  3. Default
    If associated with electrolyte and fluid shifts or imbalance, ICD-9 code
    276.9 Electrolyte and fluid disorders not elsewhere classified
    may be appropriate.

    Hope this helps,
