    can you put in the context it was used in, from the providers documentation. Or is this somthing written in your code book or in your software?

    A logical guess would be Poly Neuropathy with or due to Diabetes.

    Thank You,

    This is how the diagnosis was written. I don't believe this is proper linking, such as "due to" but haven't seen this symbol used.

    Thank you
