8D88.1/G90 Autonomic neuropathy due to diabetes mellitus



Autonomic neuropathy due to diabetes mellitus is caused by damage to the nervous system resulting from prolonged exposure to high levels of blood glucose. This damage can cause a range of symptoms, including changes in blood pressure, digestion, bladder and bowel function, and sexual response.


Autonomic neuropathy due to diabetes mellitus can be diagnosed through a physical examination and a review of medical history. Additionally, laboratory tests, such as urinalysis, blood tests, and electrocardiograms, can be used to detect abnormalities in the autonomic nervous system.

Differential diagnosis

Differential diagnosis includes other causes of autonomic neuropathy, such as idiopathic or hereditary forms, or other causes of nerve damage, such as multiple sclerosis, trauma, or vitamin deficiencies.


Treatment of autonomic neuropathy due to diabetes mellitus involves controlling blood sugar levels to prevent further nerve damage and managing symptoms through the use of medications and lifestyle changes.


The prognosis of autonomic neuropathy due to diabetes mellitus depends on the severity of the damage and the individual’s ability to control their blood sugar levels. With proper management, it is possible to reduce symptoms and improve quality of life.
