Abstract Medical Data Mining is the process of extracting hidden pattern from medical data. This paper develops an Android application using IF-THEN rules extracted from the Decision Tree (Classification Technique), which is constructed using classification algorithms (like C4.5). Once the tree was constructed, the production rules are obtained from that tree. In order to improve the coverage capacity and accuracy, rules from one or more trees are used to develop a predictive model on Android. This app provides user an easy tool which can predict diabetes and accordingly the user can maintain his/her diet and enhance some regular activities, this app provides some emotional support to users. The complete rule set which was extracted from the decision trees, was manually checked and conflicts are resolved which arises when the same consequents of the rule classify to different antecedent (class label).
Keywords- Diabetes; Decision Tree; Classification Rules; C4.5 algorithm.
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States and causes many serious complications including hypoglycemia, blindness, renal failure, cardiovascular disease .
Diabetes mellitus (DM) which is also often referred to as diabetes is a disorder that is caused by deficient production of insulin or by lacking ability to use insulin, for this reason glucose levels in the blood increases .
There are mainly four types of diabetes namely: Prediabetes, Type-1, Type-2 and Gestational Diabetes. The first type is Prediabetes which is described by the presence of blood glucose levels that are little bit higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes .Type 1 DM results, when the body fails or unable to produce insulin. This diabetes previously referred to as "insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus" (IDDM) or "juvenile diabetes". Type 2 DM occurs because of insulin resistance, a condition in which cells fail or unable to use insulin properly, sometimes also occurs with an absolute insulin deficiency. This type of diabetes previously referred to as non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). Another form of Diabetes is Gestational diabetes and occurs in a situation when pregnant women without a diabetes diagnosis previously develop a high blood glucose level .
Diabetes is classified into two more subgroups based on the specific mechanisms that cause the disease: diabetes in which genetic vulnerability is clarified at the DNA level and diabetes associated with other diseases or conditions .
CLASSIFICATION TECHNIQUES Classification is perhaps the most familiar and most
popular data mining technique. Various categories of
classification as described below.
Regression- Regression problems deal with estimation of an output value based on input values. It is mainly used for Numeric Prediction. Regression can be performed using many different types of techniques, including Neural Networks. Regression actually takes a set of data and fits the data to a formula.
Bayesian Classification – This classification technique based on Bayes Theorem, assuming that the contribution by all attributes are independent and that each contributes equally to the classification problem, a simple classification scheme called naÃ¯ve Bayes classification has been proposed that is based on Bayes rule of conditional probability.
Distance-Based Algorithms- Each item that is mapped to the same class may be thought of as more similar to the other items in that class than it is to the items found in other classes. Therefore, similarity (or distance) measures may be used to identify the alikeness of different items in the database.
Simple Approach- If we have a representative of each class, we can perform classification by assigning each tuple to the class to which it is most similar.
K-Nearest Neighbor- One common classification scheme based on the use of distance measures is that of the K nearest neighbors (KNN). The KNN technique assumes that the entire training set includes not only the data in the set but also the desired classification for each item. In effect, the training data become the model. When a classification is to be made for a new item, its distance to each item in the training set must be determined, only the K closest entries in the training set are considered
further. The new item is then placed in the class that contains the most items from the set of K closest items.
Decision Tree Based Algorithm- The decision tree approach is most useful in classification problems. With this technique, a tree is constructed to model the classification process. Once the tree is built, it is applied each tuple in the data base and results in a classification for that tuple.
ID3- The ID3 (Iterative Dichotomizer) technique to building a decision tree is based on information theory and attempts to minimize the expected numbers of comparisons. The basic idea of the induction algorithm is to ask questions whose answer provides the most information.
C4.5 – C4.5 is an extension of ID3 that accounts for unavailable values, continuous attribute value ranges, pruning of decision trees and rule derivation.
CHAID- CHAID attempts to stop growing the tree before overfitting occurs, whereas the above algorithms generate a fully grown tree and carry out pruning as post- processing step. In that sense CHAID avoids the pruning phase.
CART- CART (Classification And Regression Tree) is one of the popular methods of building decision trees in the machine learning community. CART builds a binary decision tree by splitting the records at each node, according to a function of a single attribute.
Data mining algorithms can be trained from past/known examples in clinical data and model the frequent times non- linear relationships between the independent and dependent variables. Classification is the often used technique in medical or in Health Care Systems data mining.
Comparing accuracy of algorithms: G.Visalatchi et al. compares the performances of various algorithms (SVM, k- NN, NaÃ¯ve Bayes, C4.5 and Apriori) are evaluated based on the accuracy of predicting Diabetes using Indian Pima Diabetes (PIDD) data set. Algorithm used and Accuracy in percentage (%) is given as SVM: 74.8%, KNN: 78%, NaÃ¯ve Bayes: 75%, C4.5: 86% and Apirori recorded 75% of
Comparing Time taken to classify: VelidePhani Kumar and Lakshmi Velide examines the accuracy and time taken to give the results/output for various algorithms (C4.5, Jrip, Decision trees, NaÃ¯ve Bayes, Neural- network, KNN, Fuzzy logic and Genetic Algorithms) are evaluated. Algorithms accuracy and corresponding time taken is given as: Jrip: 96.54%, 765min; C4.5: 100%, 658min; Decision Trees recorded 98.48% of accuracy and takes 875min of time for classification. Similarly NaÃ¯ve Bayes: 95.85%, 845min; Neural Networks: 97.85%, 956min respectively. This evaluation is done with the help of TANGARA tool .
p>Bayesian Network: Mukesh kumara et al. developed Bayesian Network for the classification of Diabetes data set into three class labels: Pre-Diabetes, Non-Diabetic and
Diabetic. The data is first pre-processed and make available to the WEKA tool, which classifies the data. This classifier gives output with 99.51% of accuracy .
Comparing error rate of algorithms: K. Rajesh et al. compares the error rate of various algorithms for classifying the Diabetic Data Set and concluded that the C4.5 algorithm gives minimum error rate of 0.0937 as compared to other algorithms (C-RT, CS-RT, ID3, K-NN, LDA, NAÃVE BAYES, PLS-DA and SVM) .
Logistic Regression: Jay Pedersen et al. developed a Logistic Regression model in which the Data Set classified either YES or NO class labels. In this case, a variable which is YES when a person has diabetes and NO when they do not is the variable of interest. The model can predict a YES or NO result for the variable of interest based on other variables .
P. Radha et al. evaluated the performance of five algorithms C4.5, SVM, k-NN, PNN, and BLR. Comparison of performance of data mining algorithms based on computing time, precision value, the data evaluated using 10 fold Cross Validation error rate, bootstrap validation and accuracy. TANGARA tool is used to achieve the best results..
Rough Set: Joseph L. Breault uses Rough Set Theory and Rosetta Software for the analysis of Diabetic Data Set. The accuracy of predicting diabetic status on the PIDD (Pima Indian Diabetes Dataset) was 82.6% on the initial random sample .
SVM (Support Vector Machine): V. Anuja Kumari and R.Chitra proposed a classification model using Support Vector Machine with Radial Basis Function. The performance parameters such as the classification accuracy (78%), sensitivity (80%), and specificity (76.5%) of the SVM and RBF have found to be high thus making it a good option for the classification process . Arwa Al-Rofiyee et al. proposed a method in which, the PIMA India diabetes dataset is converted to the ARFF format to be inserted in WEKA software. The WEKA (Classifier) is used to train and test the model that was build based on the training results, under the Multi-layer perceptron function .
DT and Regression model: Pardha Repalli in  built a Decision trees and Regression models to predict the binary target variable.
Murat Koklu and Yavuz Unal in  developed a decision support system for diagnosis of illness that make use of data mining and artificial intelligence classifier algorithms namely Multilayer Feed Forward Perceptron, NaÃ¯ve Bayes Classifier and C4.5. Pima Indian dataset (PIDD) of UCI Machine Learning Repository was used.
Hybrid Technique ( DT with K-Means clustering): Asha Gowda Karegowda et al. proposed a new methodology for improving the quality of the dataset: (PIDD). This methodology developed a model consists of two stages. In the first stage, the K-means clustering is used to identify and remove incorrectly classified instances. The continuous data is converted to categorical form by estimated width of the desired intervals, based on the opinion of diabetes expert. In
the next stage a fine tuned classification is done using Decision tree C4.5 .
Divya Jain in  compares two Data Mining Tools namely: WEKA and TANAGRA for the comparison of classification accuracy of C4.5 algorithm for Diabetes Dataset.
Mohd. Mahmood Ali et al.  proposed methodology to improve the efficiency of C4.5 algorithm, and also the deficiencies exits in C4.5 classifier analyzed using WEKA tool by constructing decision trees with different types of data sets, especially with large data sets, resulted in few classification rules using C4.5 classifier.
Extracting Rules from DT: J. R. Quinlan in provides the information about importance of Rules extraction from Decision Tree .
Hybrid Model (DT with Agglomerative Hierarchical Clustering): Norul Hidayah Ibrahim et al. suggest one Hybrid Model to predict Diabetes. They developed the new hybrid model by exploring Agglomerative Hierarchical Clustering and Decision Tree Classifier on Pima Indians Diabetes dataset and concluded that the performance accuracy of the Decision Tree Classifier against the same classifier augmented with Hierarchical Clustering provides improved results .
Sam Drazin and Matt Montag  discusses applications of the Weka interface, the given data sets were tested using the J48 decision tree-inducing algorithm (Weka implementation of C4.5), which was published by Ross Quinlan in 1993.
Dr. Neeraj Bhargava et al.  focused on J48 algorithm which is used to create Univariate Decision Tree. They also discuss about the idea of multivariate decision tree with process of classifying instance by using more than one attribute at each internal node.
Mobile apps in medical field: C. Lee Ventola provides the benefits and uses of mobile apps in medical field. The use of mobile devices by health care professionals (HCPs) has transformed many aspects of clinical practice. Mobile devices have become common place in health care systems, leading to rapid growth in the development of medical software applications (apps) for these platforms. The ability to download medical apps on mobile devices has made a wealth of mobile clinical resources available to HCPs. Medical devices and apps are already invaluable tools for Health professional as well as for patients, and as their features and uses increase, they are expected to become more widely incorporated into nearly every aspect of clinical exercise .
Gunther Eysenbach et al.  proposes that the smartphone has a very bright future in the world of health care and medicine, while doctors, HCPs, engineers, and others alike continue to contribute more ingenuity to this dynamic field. Murray Aitken in  said that, creation of app products which aid users in condition management and provide emotional support and other patient success stories.

the overall performance and also the rules extracted from tree are most suitable and simple for developing the Android Application. Thus, the proposed methodology in this paper develops an Android application for predicting and managing Diabetes using IF-THEN rules extracted from Decision Tree constructed using C4.5 decision tree induction algorithm for Diabetes data set. This application helps the user by providing the result as the chances of Diabetes and helps in providing some guidance related to their regular activities and diet.
Figure 1. provides the overview of the proposed methodology used to implement Android Application. C4.5 algorithm is used to construct the Decision Tree. The whole data set is divided into two parts as Training Dataset and Testing Dataset.
At first data is collected from two districts, this data is cleaned and pre-processed in order to develop a Decision Tree using C4.5 algorithm. After the construction of Decision Tree, the production rules are extracted from this tree, this IF- THEN rule set is used to develop the Android Application which can predict the chances and risk level of Diabetes.
Figure 1 Proposed Methodology for developing Android Application
Note: The reader may wonder why we use the decision tree at all, instead of developing rules directly from the diabetes data set. Working from the tree has two major advantages: First, most interesting classification tasks involve attributes with continuous values which must be formed into tests by the development of appropriate thresholds (e.g. Plasma <=127 or above). Secondly, even a long path in a decision tree typically involves only a small proportion of the possible attributes. The space of potential rules is thus shrunk from 0(223) to 0(29) with a corresponding reduction in computational load .
From this study we conclude that the C4.5 algorithm is best suited for our work, because its accuracy is good considering
