What is the ICD 10 code for Hormone Replacement?

Hormone replacement is an important medical procedure which seeks to replace depleted hormones in order to maintain a healthy balance in the body. The International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10) provides codes to classify different types of hormone replacement. The specific ICD-10 code for hormone replacement is Z79.8.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a form of treatment used to supplement or replace the natural hormones that naturally decline with age, illness, and other factors. It may involve using one single hormone or more than one hormone combined in a tailored formulation for each patient. HRT can reduce symptoms like fatigue, mood swings and weight gain caused by hormonal imbalance.

Hormones are responsible for producing many of our body's natural functions - from regulating metabolism to controlling reproductive systems. As we get older, our hormones tend to become unbalanced and start missing the healthy levels required in order for us to feel and function effectively. For example, if your testosterone levels decrease due low production of this essential male sexual hormone , you may experience a decrease in libido or erectile dysfunction and vice versa having excesses of certain hormones such as estrogen or progesterone play their part and can cause conditions like endometriosis or polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).

When such imbalances happen, it's important to talk with your health care provider about available treatments so that you can decide which type(s) best suit your needs. Hormone replacement therapy is often recommended as a treatment option when natural hormone levels decline drastically; however, not all types of HRT are suitable for every individual because it depends on various factors such as gender, age, physical condition etcetera.<br>
The ICD-10 Section Z79 covers "long term use" codes as well as other related purposes associated with certain drugs and biological substances like hormones therapy, including:

  • Z79.0 Long term (current) use of antithrombotic drugs
  • Z79.2 Long term current use of drugs affecting lipoprotein metabolism
  • Z79.3 Long term current use of insulin
  • Z79.4 Long term current use of immunosuppressive drugs
  • Z79.8 Other long term drug therapy

When seeking treatment for hormone deficiencies or imbalances the most appropriate category would be ‘Other long-term drug therapy’ code category - Z79.8 - which subsumes all types of drugs used in managing such conditions regardless what they are being used for since this code applies only when they are taken on an ongoing basis over at least six months whilst additionally also specifying non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs therapy taking place throughout this period.<br>
