Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries

The Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries is a list of ICD-10 codes, organized "head to toe" into chapters and sections with guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code E87.2:

Inclusion Terms

Inclusion Terms
These terms are the conditions for which that code is to be used. The terms may be synonyms of the code title, or, in the case of "other specified" codes, the terms are a list of the various conditions assigned to that code. The inclusion terms are not necessarily exhaustive. Additional terms found only in the Alphabetic Index may also be assigned to a code.
  • Acidosis NOS
  • Lactic acidosis
  • Metabolic acidosis
  • Respiratory acidosis

Type 1 Excludes

Type 1 Excludes
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes note. It means "NOT CODED HERE!" An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.
  • diabetic acidosis - see categories E08 E10 E13

Clinical Information

  • ACIDOSIS-. a pathologic condition of acid accumulation or depletion of base in the body. the two main types are respiratory acidosis and metabolic acidosis due to metabolic acid build up.
  • ACIDOSIS LACTIC-. acidosis caused by accumulation of lactic acid more rapidly than it can be metabolized. it may occur spontaneously or in association with diseases such as diabetes mellitus; leukemia; or liver failure.
  • ACIDOSIS RENAL TUBULAR-. a group of genetic disorders of the kidney tubules characterized by the accumulation of metabolically produced acids with elevated plasma chloride hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis. defective renal acidification of urine proximal tubules or low renal acid excretion distal tubules can lead to complications such as hypokalemia hypercalcinuria with nephrolithiasis and nephrocalcinosis and rickets.
  • ACIDOSIS RESPIRATORY-. respiratory retention of carbon dioxide. it may be chronic or acute.
  • HYPOALDOSTERONISM-. a congenital or acquired condition of insufficient production of aldosterone by the adrenal cortex leading to diminished aldosterone mediated synthesis of na+ k+ exchanging atpase in renal tubular cells. clinical symptoms include hyperkalemia sodium wasting hypotension and sometimes metabolic acidosis.
  • DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS-. a life threatening complication of diabetes mellitus primarily of type 1 diabetes mellitus with severe insulin deficiency and extreme hyperglycemia. it is characterized by ketosis; dehydration; and depressed consciousness leading to coma.

Diagnostic Related Groups

The ICD-10 code E87.2 is grouped in the following groups for version MS-DRG V37.0 What are Diagnostic Related Groups?
The Diagnostic Related Groups (DRGs) are a patient classification scheme which provides a means of relating the type of patients a hospital treats. The DRGs divides all possible principal diagnoses into mutually exclusive principal diagnosis areas referred to as Major Diagnostic Categories (MDC).
applicable from 10/01/2019 through 09/30/2020.

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.
