    Question Follow up on lab results
    Medical Coding Books
    Am concerned on what would the first-list diagnosis be.
    the scenario is
    CC: Follow up for lab results
    No HPI documented,
    PMhx states patient has hypertension. CBC results are reviewed here.
    Impression and plan: labs ordered-creatinine and GTT and diet and exercise discussed.

    What diagnosis can be appropriate in such scenario?
    V67.9 or V67.59 or is there a better one. Please give your valuable opinion.

    Waiting for reply...
