Abstract

Currently, one of the major issues regarding diabetes is its early detection. In this research, the dataset, which has been provided by Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, based on National Type-2 Diabetes Prevention and Control Program in Iran, used for finding an answer to a key question. In this program, there are some standard danger factors based on the physical features, which indicate whether a person is susceptible to diabetes (some people are unaware of their disease) or not, such as Body Mass Index (BMI). The World Health Organization (WHO) mentioned standard values for the danger factors which are based on the physical features, based on those; people who are suspicious for diabetes (considering their physical features) are referred back to the lab to take the Fasting Blood Sugar Test (FBS). The key question is that which values of physical features separate the diabetic and non-diabetic people more accurately, in Iran or more specifically in Shiraz. Classification is one of the data mining techniques, which can classify diabetic and non-diabetic people. Decision tree is a classification technique that can provide generalized rules based on the tree. In this paper, C4.5 decision tree algorithm has been used for rules generation. The extracted rules mention different values of physical features than the standard values.
