ICD-10-CM Code D55.0
Anemia due to glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase [G6PD] deficiency
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
D55.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of anemia due to glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase [G6PD] deficiency. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code D550 is used to code 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase deficiency
6-Phosphogluconate dehydrogenase deficiency (6PGD deficiency), or partial deficiency, is an autosomal hereditary disease characterized by abnormally low levels of 6-Phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (6PGD), a metabolic enzyme involved in the Pentose phosphate pathway. It is very important in the metabolism of red blood cells (erythrocytes). 6PDG deficiency affects less than 1% of the population, and studies suggest that there may be race variant involved in many of the reported cases. Although it is similar, 6PDG deficiency is not linked to glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, as they are located on different chromosomes. However, a few people have had both of these metabolic diseases.
