As far as the fourth digit for complications, some are acute such as ketoacidosis, or coma, or gangrene and some are chronic, such as retinopathy, etc. The acute complications could be there one day and not the next, so yes they can have a complication and then not. As far as the fifth digit, this is for uncontrolled vs not stated as uncontrolled which is completely different than having complications and yes this could change from time to time also. A patient could have 250.12 on one visit (diabetes with ketoacidosis uncontrolled) and then on a future visit be back to 250.00 diabetes no complication not stated as uncontrolled.
