T78.1-Other adverse food reactions, not elsewhere classified
Z91.018 Allergy to other foods
Patient has 'history of adverse pine nut reaction.'
She is continuing avoidance. She is prescribed a current epi pen.
Is this T78.1XXD because she is being prescribed a current epi pen for her condition?
&th; character 'D- Subsequent encounter' since medication adjustment is listed as examples of subsequent encounters in the ICD-10 Guidelines
