Diabetes with Autonomic Neuropathy


One of the most commonly missed RAF codes is Type 2 Diabetes with Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy. Our focus is often on peripheral neuropathy and we overlook this common code (E11.43). 


See below for manifestations of Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy. We commonly diagnose and treat erectile dysfunction, sick sinus syndrome, hypoglycemic unawareness and sleep apnea. These conditions are considered complications of diabetes, or that diabetes was a contributing factor, as long as the onset of the condition was after the diagnosis of Diabetes.
