Obesity icd 10 definition


The International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10), defines obesity as a medical condition characterized by an excess of body fat that may have adverse effects on health. It is typically determined by a measurement called Body Mass Index (BMI), which is calculated using an individual's height and weight. In ICD-10, the specific code for obesity is E66. The condition is further categorized based on the degree of obesity, such as E66.0 for obesity due to excess calories, E66.1 for morbid (severe) obesity, and E66.9 for unspecified obesity. ICD-10 codes are used for medical billing and coding purposes to classify and track various health conditions and diseases.
