Hi Annette,

Thank you for your question.

As per above given information, the ICD-10 code that will apply for the above scenario is N08 (glomerular disorders in diseases classified elsewhere. however, you may need to code first the underlying diseases as well.

Also, code N26.9 (Renal sclerosis, unspecified) and I70.1 (Atherosclerosis of renal artery). Feel free to ask for any further query.
