ICD-10-CM Code R73.09
Other abnormal glucose
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
R73.09 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other abnormal glucose. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code R730 is used to code Impaired fasting glucose
Impaired fasting glucose (IFG), more commonly known as pre-diabetes refers to a condition in which the fasting blood glucose level is consistently elevated above what is considered normal levels; however, it is not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes mellitus. This pre-diabetic state is associated with insulin resistance and increased risk of cardiovascular pathology, although of lesser risk than impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). IFG can progress to type 2 diabetes mellitus if lifestyle changes are not made. There is a 50% risk over 10 years of progressing to overt diabetes. A recent study cited the average time for progression as less than three years.
