This article will outline the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, prevention, treatment and the ICD 10 CM code for Impaired Fasting Glucose
Impaired Fasting Glucose ICD 10 Causes
Impaired Fasting Glucose ICD 10 occurs when the body is unable to control glucose levels. Impaired fasting sugar is a different sign or symptom from a high or normal glucose level that can be detected in a blood sample. Factors that increase IFG risk include black or South Asian skin color (25 % or white skin color (40%), family history of type 2 diabetes, obesity, hypertension, heart attack or stroke, gestational diabetes and serious mental health problems.
Impaired Fasting Glucose ICD 10 Symptoms
There are some signs and symptoms associated with Impaired Fasting Glucose ICD 10, but they are likely to be minor or less significant than the symptoms that indicate a complete progression of type 2 diabetes. Symptoms include increased or increased urination, waking up at night to urinate, fatigue, fatigue, blurred vision, and slow wound healing. Others are altered sensations such as numbness or tingling in the hands and feet, as well as recurrent or difficult-to-treat urinary tract infections.
Impaired Fasting Glucose ICD 10 Diagnosis
Impaired Fasting Glucose ICD 10 is defined as a two-hour glucose level of 140-199 mg / dL (7.8-11.0 mmol / 75 g) in oral glucose tolerance tests, and impaired fasting glucose ICD 10 is defined in fasting patients by glucose levels of 100-125 mg / dl (5.6-6.9 mmol / l). These values are below normal and are diagnosed as diabetes. Patients with impaired glucose tolerance and impaired glucose rapids have a significant risk of developing diabetes and are an important target group for primary prevention.
Impaired Fasting Glucose ICD 10 Prevention
To prevent Impaired Fasting Glucose ICD 10 from progressing to type 2 diabetes, try to eat a healthy diet. Healthy lifestyle choices can help the patient return to normal their blood sugar or at least prevent it from rising to the level of type 2 diabetes. Consuming a variety of foods will help the patient achieve their goals without compromising on taste or nutrition. Focus on fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Choose foods that are low in fat, calories and fiber.
The patient can also try to become more active. The target is 150 minutes of moderate to 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity per week.
Smoking increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. For the patient to maintain their weight in a healthy range, they should focus on permanent changes in their eating and exercise habits. If the patient is overweight, losing 5-7% of body weight (about 6.4 kg) at a weight of 91 kg or more can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. The patient can also naturally lose excess weight. The patient should also take medication if necessary.
Impaired Fasting Glucose ICD 10 Treatment
Your physician may prescribe medication to treat Impaired Fasting Glucose ICD 10. Drugs to control cholesterol and high blood pressure may also be prescribed. If the patient is at high risk for diabetes, the doctor may recommend metformin, glumetza or other. If medication is needed, these are the recommended medications. Children with pre-diabetes should make lifestyle changes that are recommended for adults with type 2 diabetes including weight loss, less refined carbohydrates and fats, more fiber, smaller portions when eating and at least an hour of physical activity a day. Medications are not recommended for children with Predi diabetes if these lifestyle changes do not improve blood sugar levels.
