Abstract

Diabetes mellitus is a serious hazard to human health that can result in a number of severe complications. Early diagnosis and treatment is of significant importance to patients for the acquisition of a better quality life and precaution against subsequent complications. This paper proposes an approach by learning a fuzzy rule base for the effective diagnosis of diabetes mellitus. In particular, the proposed approach starts with the generation of a crisp rule base through a decision tree learning mechanism, which is data-driven and able to learn simple rule structures. The crisp rule base is then transformed into a fuzzy rule base, which forms the input to the powerful neuro-fuzzy framework of ANFIS, further optimising the parameters of both rule antecedents and consequents. Experimental study on the well-known Pima Indian diabetes data set is provided to demonstrate the promising potential of the proposed approach
