2019 ICD-10-CM Index > 'Indigestion'

It may be useful to know that you have non-ulcer dyspepsia and not some other disease. However, you will have to accept that pain, discomfort and other dyspeptic symptoms are likely to come and go. Avoiding foods and situations that seem to cause it may help. Because indigestion can be a sign of a more serious problem, see your health care provider if it lasts for more than two weeks or if you have severe pain or other symptoms. Your health care provider may use x-rays, lab tests, and an upper endoscopy to diagnose the cause.

Sometimes, eating food can cause the stomach to become irritated and uncomfortable. Foods that are spicy or cause allergies are among the culprits, in some cases, as is eating too big a portion.

The symptoms seem to come from the upper gut but the cause is not known. If you have tests, nothing abnormal is found inside your gut.

They affect in particular the gastrointestinal tract (irritable colon, non-ulcerous dyspepsia), the cardiovascular system (cardiac phobia), the respiratory system (hyperventilation syndrome) and include chronic pain syndromes. The earlier term “functional syndrome” has been discarded in favor of the category “somatization disorders”.

A ‘billable code’ is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis. Nearly everyone has had indigestion at one time. It’s a feeling of discomfort or a burning feeling in your upper abdomen. You may have heartburn or belch and feel bloated.

Although the functional dyspepsia group reported more upper abdominal fullness, nausea, and overall greater distress and anxiety, almost all the same symptoms were seen in both groups. Sensation in the stomach or the first part of the small intestine (the duodenum) may be altered in some way – an ‘irritable stomach’. About one in three people with non-ulcer dyspepsia also have irritable bowel syndrome and have additional symptoms of lower tummy (abdominal) pains, erratic bowel movements, etc. The cause of irritable bowel syndrome is not known. “K30 – Functional Dyspepsia.” ICD-10-CM, 10th ed., Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the National Center for Health Statistics, 2018.

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. Code also note – A “code also” note instructs that two codes may be required to fully describe a condition, but this note does not provide sequencing direction. All content of the ICD-10 CM Search is based on the classifications

Non-ulcer dyspepsia is sometimes called functional dyspepsia. It means that no known cause can be found for the symptoms. That is, other causes for dyspepsia such as duodenal ulcer, stomach ulcer, acid reflux and oesophagitis, inflamed stomach (gastritis) and eosinophilic oesophagitis are not the cause. The inside of your gut looks normal if you have a test called a gastroscopy (endoscopy) – see below. It is the most common cause of dyspepsia.

The physician also instructed the patient to return in two weeks for follow-up of the indigestion. To completely code this case, assign ICD-10-CM code(s) for __________. Somatization disorders are particularly common in internal and general medicine.

These instructional notes indicate the proper sequencing order of the codes, etiology followed by manifestation. The ICD-10 and ICD-9 GEMs are used to facilitate linking between the diagnosis codes in ICD-9-CM and the new ICD-10-CM code set.
