What should I code for poor po intake or no po intake

As per the guidelines, in the absence of documentation of the reason for the poor oral intake, the appropriate code to assign is R63.8 Other symptoms and signs concerning food and fluid intake, which can be reached by following index entry Symptoms specified, involving, food and oral intake.
Hope this helps.
