Valid for Submission
E77.8 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of other disorders of glycoprotein metabolism. The code E77.8 is valid during the fiscal year 2021 from October 01, 2020 through September 30, 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code E77.8 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like alpha-2-antitrypsin deficiency, alpha-n-acetylgalactosaminidase deficiency, carbohydrate deficient glycoprotein syndrome type 1m, carbohydrate deficient glycoprotein syndrome type 1o, carbohydrate deficient glycoprotein syndrome type 2a , carbohydrate deficient glycoprotein syndrome type 2d, etc.
Index to Diseases and Injuries
The Index to Diseases and Injuries is an alphabetical listing of medical terms, with each term mapped to one or more ICD-10 code(s). The following references for the code E77.8 are found in the index:
- - Disorder (of) - See Also: Disease;
- - Hypoproteinemia - E77.8
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Alpha-2-antitrypsin deficiency
- Alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminidase deficiency
- Carbohydrate deficient glycoprotein syndrome type 1m
- Carbohydrate deficient glycoprotein syndrome type 1o
- Carbohydrate deficient glycoprotein syndrome type 2a
- Carbohydrate deficient glycoprotein syndrome type 2d
- Carbohydrate deficient glycoprotein syndrome type 2k
- Carbohydrate deficient glycoprotein syndrome type II due to MAN1B1 deficiency
- Carbohydrate-deficient glycoprotein syndrome
- Carbohydrate-deficient glycoprotein syndrome type I
- Carbohydrate-deficient glycoprotein syndrome type II
- Carbohydrate-deficient glycoprotein syndrome type III
- Congenital disorder of glycosylation type Ia
- Disorder of sialic acid metabolism
- Glycoprotein storage disorder
- Hypercoagulability syndrome due to glycosylphosphatidylinositol deficiency
- NGLY1-congenital disorder of deglycosylation
- Pulmonary edema due to hypoproteinemia
Convert E77.8 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code E77.8 its ICD-9 equivalent. The approximate mapping means there is not an exact match between the ICD-10 code and the ICD-9 code and the mapped code is not a precise representation of the original code.
Information for Patients
Carbohydrate Metabolism Disorders
Metabolism is the process your body uses to make energy from the food you eat. Food is made up of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Chemicals in your digestive system (enzymes) break the food parts down into sugars and acids, your body's fuel. Your body can use this fuel right away, or it can store the energy in your body tissues. If you have a metabolic disorder, something goes wrong with this process.
Carbohydrate metabolism disorders are a group of metabolic disorders. Normally your enzymes break carbohydrates down into glucose (a type of sugar). If you have one of these disorders, you may not have enough enzymes to break down the carbohydrates. Or the enzymes may not work properly. This causes a harmful amount of sugar to build up in your body. That can lead to health problems, some of which can be serious. Some of the disorders are fatal.
These disorders are inherited. Newborn babies get screened for many of them, using blood tests. If there is a family history of one of these disorders, parents can get genetic testing to see whether they carry the gene. Other genetic tests can tell whether the fetus has the disorder or carries the gene for the disorder.
Treatments may include special diets, supplements, and medicines. Some babies may also need additional treatments, if there are complications. For some disorders, there is no cure, but treatments may help with symptoms.
