This article outlines the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and ICD 10 CM codes for Hyperparathyroidism.
Hyperparathyroidism ICD 10 Causes
Primary hyperparathyroidism ICD 10 occurs when 2 or more parathyroid glands enlarge (hyperplasia). Women are more likely than men to develop the disease, and most people develop it before the age of 60. The disease is usually caused by cancer of the parathyroid glands. In about 4% to 5% of cases it is caused by a non-carcinogenic tumour (adenoma) on one or both parathyroid glands. Hyperparathyrodism ICD 10 is usually diagnosed when the signs and symptoms of the disease are obvious.
Hyperparathyroidism ICD 10 Symptoms
The symptoms of hyperparathyroidism ICD 10 are often non-existent or mild and frequent, and as with many other disorders, the diagnosis of the disease is often overlooked. A number of signs and symptoms can include:
- Kidney stones
- Excessive urination
- Abdominal pain
- Tire weakness
- Bone and joint pains
- Frequent complaints without apparent cause
- Vomiting and loss of appetite.
When symptoms occur they often are the result of damage or dysfunction of other organs or tissues because of high calcium levels in the blood or urine or too little calcium in the bones. Symptoms can be mild or non-specific, they do not appear to be related to parathyroid function, or they can be severe. The condition is usually detected when a blood test is ordered for the condition.
Hyperparathyroidism ICD 10 Diagnosis
Patients that have primary hyperparathyroidism ICD 10, have higher levels of calcium and parathyroid hormones than normal in blood tests. Other tests may be arranged to check for complications of hyperparathyroidism ICD 10. These tests include:
- A blood test to check vitamin D levels (it is common to have low vitamin D levels when a patient has hyperparathysroidism)
- A bone density test that checks for bone loss
- An ultrasound or other imaging test of the kidneys to check if kidney stones are present
- A 24-hour urine collection test that measures the amount of calcium or other chemicals in the urine to determine the cause of hyperparathiroidism
- Another blood test is to check how well the kidneys are functioning.
- The provider may also arrange a Semamibi scan to check the growth of the parathyroid gland or the enlargement of the gland (s).
Hyperparathyroidism ICD 10 Treatments
Treatment of hyperparathyroidism ICD 10 depends on the suspected cause, severity of the symptoms and the preferences of the patient. Patients with increased calcium symptoms may decide to postpone the intervention and visit us regularly for checkups, but this careful monitoring approach is known as vigilant waiting. In severe cases of primary hyperparathyroidism, the doctor may recommend removing overactive glands if a tumor is present. Kidney failure may require dialysis or transplantation in some patients
