Version 2020 Billable Code

Valid for Submission

E83.19 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of other disorders of iron metabolism. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code E83.19 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like beta-propeller protein-associated neurodegeneration, coenzyme a synthase protein associated neurodegeneration, deficiency of ferroxidase, disorder of skin color, endogenous non-melanin pigmentation, ferro-cerebro-cutaneous syndrome, etc

Information for Patients

Metabolic Disorders

Metabolism is the process your body uses to get or make energy from the food you eat. Food is made up of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Chemicals in your digestive system 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, such as your liver, muscles, and body fat.

A metabolic disorder occurs when abnormal chemical reactions in your body disrupt this process. When this happens, you might have too much of some substances or too little of other ones that you need to stay healthy. There are different groups of disorders. Some affect the breakdown of amino acids, carbohydrates, or lipids. Another group, mitochondrial diseases, affects the parts of the cells that produce the energy.

You can develop a metabolic disorder when some organs, such as your liver or pancreas, become diseased or do not function normally. Diabetes is an example.
