Data mining is the process of analyzing different aspects of data and aggregating it into useful information. Classification is a data mining task generally used in medical data mining. The goal here is to discover new and useful patterns to provide meaningful and useful information for the users about the diabetes. Here a diabetes prediction and monitoring system is designed and implemented using ID3 classification algorithm. The symptoms causing diabetes are identified and are applied to the prediction model based on which the prediction is done. The monitoring module analyzes the laboratory test reports of the blood sugar levels of the patient and provides proper awareness messages to the patient through mail and bar chart.
