Diabetes mellitus is the most common endocrine metabolic disorder and its diagnosis is increasing at an alarming rate [1]. No perfect cure exists for this disorder, which is the third leading cause of death and morbidity in the Developing countries. The comparative risk for individuals with diabetes acquiring end-stage renal disease is 25 times that of individuals without diabetes. The relative risk of an individual with diabetes becoming blind is 20 times greater than for other individuals [2]. Diabetes is classified into two types – Insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (type-1 diabetes) and Non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (type-2 diabetes). Type-1 is dependent on exogenous insulin to prevent ketoacidosis. A large amount of people are usually affected from Type-2 diabetes which develops after the age of 30 and is associated with obesity. The goal of predictive data mining in clinical medicine is to develop models that can use patient specific information to predict the significant result and thereby support clinical decision-making. In this study we develop prediction model to predict whether or not a newly diagnosed patient (pregnant women) would likely develop diabetes within five years from the time of first diagnosis. The datasets are taken from UCI machine learning database repository [3]. The only motive for using this dataset is that it is very commonly used by various classification algorithms; hence it is easier to compare the results with our study.
