    Default steroid-induced hyperglycemia

    Does anyone know of the proper diagnosis code(s) for steroid-induced hyperglycemia?

    was it due to an adverse reaction or to improper dosing?

    If it is documented as hyperglycemia the you code
    790.29
    E932.0
    If it is documented as diabetes then code
    249.00
    E932.0
