Code Classification

  • Endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases
    • Metabolic disorders
      • Other and unspecified metabolic disorders

E88.9 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of metabolic disorder, unspecified. The code is valid during the current fiscal year for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions from October 01, 2023 through September 30, 2024.

Unspecified diagnosis codes like E88.9 are acceptable when clinical information is unknown or not available about a particular condition. Although a more specific code is preferable, unspecified codes should be used when such codes most accurately reflect what is known about a patient's condition. Specific diagnosis codes should not be used if not supported by the patient's medical record.

Clinical Information

  • Presbycusis-. gradual bilateral hearing loss associated with aging that is due to progressive degeneration of cochlear structures and central auditory pathways. hearing loss usually begins with the high frequencies then progresses to sounds of middle and low frequencies.
  • Metabolic Myopathy-. a group of rare inherited disorders characterized by a deficiency of enzymes that are involved in metabolic pathways that affect muscles. the disorders are characterized by muscle dysfunction.
  • Presbycusis-. bilateral hearing loss caused by progressive degeneration of cochlear structures and central auditory pathways, typically associated with the aging process.
  • Myocardial Degeneration-. degeneration of myocardial tissue.

Patient Education

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.
