A multi-class classification model for supporting the diagnosis of type II diabetes mellitus

Kuang-Ming KuoChi Hsien Huang


Numerous studies have utilized machine-learning techniques to predict the early onset of type 2 diabetes mellitus. However, fewer studies have been conducted to predict an appropriate diagnosis code for the type 2 diabetes mellitus condition. Further, ensemble techniques such as bagging and boosting have likewise been utilized to an even lesser extent. The present study aims to identify appropriate diagnosis codes for type 2 diabetes mellitus patients by means of building a multi-class prediction model which is both parsimonious and possessing minimum features. In addition, the importance of features for predicting diagnose code is provided. This study included 149 patients who have contracted type 2 diabetes mellitus. The sample was collected from a large hospital in Taiwan from November, 2017 to May, 2018. Machine learning algorithms including instance-based, decision trees, deep neural network, and ensemble algorithms were all used to build the predictive models utilized in this study. Average accuracy, area under receiver operating characteristic curve, Matthew correlation coefficient, macro-precision, recall, weighted average of precision and recall, and model process time were subsequently used to assess the performance o...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
