ICD-10-CM Code E15
Nondiabetic hypoglycemic coma
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
E15 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of nondiabetic hypoglycemic coma. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code E15 is used to code Hyperinsulinism
Hyperinsulinism refers to an above normal level of insulin in the blood of a person or animal. Normal insulin secretion and blood levels are closely related to the level of glucose in the blood, so that a given level of insulin can be normal for one blood glucose level but low or high for another. Hyperinsulinism can be associated with several types of medical problems, which can be roughly divided into two broad and largely non-overlapping categories: those tending toward reduced sensitivity to insulin and high blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia), and those tending toward excessive insulin secretion and low glucose levels (hypoglycemia).
