I was looking at the concept hierarchy in Athena for Diabetic complication Click here for hierarchy
I see that under “Diabetic complication”, we have 37 terms. 2 of which are “Disorders due to Type 1 Diabetes mellitus” and “Disorders due to Type 2 Diabetes mellitus”.
But we still have remaining 35 terms under Diabetic complication which isn’t under any of the above two categories (Type 1 or Type 2)
May I know what does that mean?
Being new to healthcare, I wa/s of the assumption that Diabetes can either be Type 1 or Type 2. And In extreme cases, Type 2 can become Type 1.
But the complications are usually grouped under Type 1 or Type 2.
Since these 35 terms don’t fall under Type 1 or Type 2 disorders, what do they mean or how should I interpret them? Whether it was caused due to Type 1 or Type 2? Or it’s like these complications can occur for both Type 1 and Type 2. Overlap is possible?
Can anyone help me with this?
