Clinical Classification

Clinical Information

  • Congenital Hyperinsulinism

    a familial, nontransient hypoglycemia with defects in negative feedback of glucose-regulated insulin release. clinical phenotypes include hypoglycemia; hyperinsulinemia; seizures; coma; and often large birth weight. several sub-types exist with the most common, type 1, associated with mutations on an atp-binding cassette transporters (subfamily c, member 8).
  • Neonatal Hypoglycemia

    blood glucose concentration below the lower limit of established reference ranges in a newborn.
  • Idiopathic Ketotic Hypoglycemia|Accelerated Starvation

    ketotic hypoglycemia that usually occurs in young, thin children in association with infection or fasting, and which typically resolves by age 6-8 years.
  • Ketotic Hypoglycemia

    a condition in which hypoglycemia is accompanied by ketosis. this condition may be a manifestation of another condition such as glycogen storage disease, ketone utilization defects, growth hormone deficiency, or cortisol deficiency.

Convert P70.4 to ICD-9-CM

[1] Not chronic - A diagnosis code that does not fit the criteria for chronic condition (duration, ongoing medical treatment, and limitations) is considered not chronic. Some codes designated as not chronic are acute conditions. Other diagnosis codes that indicate a possible chronic condition, but for which the duration of the illness is not specified in the code description (i.e., we do not know the condition has lasted 12 months or longer) also are considered not chronic.
