ICD-10-CM Code E79.0
Hyperuricemia without signs of inflammatory arthritis and tophaceous disease

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

E79.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of hyperuricemia without signs of inflammatory arthritis and tophaceous disease. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code E790 is used to code Hyperuricemia

Hyperuricemia is an abnormally high level of uric acid in the blood. In the pH conditions of body fluid, uric acid exists largely as urate, the ion form. The amount of urate in the body depends on the balance between the amount of purines eaten in food, the amount of urate synthesised within the body (e.g., through cell turnover), and the amount of urate that is excreted in urine or through the gastrointestinal tract. In humans, the upper end of the normal range is 360 µmol/L (6 mg/dL) for women and 400 µmol/L (6.8 mg/dL) for men.

Other abnormal blood chemistry (approximate match)

This is the official approximate match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that while there is no exact mapping between this ICD10 code E79.0 and a single ICD9 code, 790.6 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
