ICD-10-CM Code E78.1
Pure hyperglyceridemia

Billable Code
Billable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

E78.1 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of pure hyperglyceridemia. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code E781 is used to code Hypertriglyceridemia

Hypertriglyceridemia denotes high (hyper-) blood levels (-emia) of triglycerides, the most abundant fatty molecule in most organisms. Elevated levels of triglycerides are associated with atherosclerosis, even in the absence of hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol levels), and predispose to cardiovascular disease. Very high triglyceride levels also increase the risk of acute pancreatitis. Hypertriglyceridemia itself is usually symptomless, although high levels may be associated with skin lesions known as xanthomas.

Pure hyperglyceridemia (exact match)

This is the official exact match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that in all cases where the ICD9 code 272.1 was previously used, E78.1 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
