N25.8: Other disorders resulting from impaired renal tubular function
Your kidneys are not working properly.
There are normally 2 kidneys in the body. They filter blood and create urine. They thus help to detoxify the body. Furthermore, the kidneys regulate the blood pressure and salt content in the blood, among other things. If the kidneys do not work properly, the levels of important messenger substances and salts in the blood may change.
This can affect the balance of acids in the blood and kidney stones may form.
Changes in blood salts can affect bones. Pain may occur at the affected areas.
On medical documents, the ICD code is often appended by letters that indicate the diagnostic certainty or the affected side of the body.
- G: Confirmed diagnosis
- V: Tentative diagnosis
- Z: Condition after
- A: Excluded diagnosis
- L: Left
- R: Right
- B: Both sides
