Objective: International Diabetes Organization estimates that there are 285 million people worldwide who suffer from diabetes, and this figure is expected to increase to 450 million in next 20 years. According to statistics issued by the World Health Organization, diabetes is considered among ten leading causes of death in world and its prevalence in the population is growing.This paper deals with designing and building an Expert System for Diabetes Mellitus diagnosis. Materials and Methods: We randomly select 78 knowingly volunteered patients as non-intervention from approximately 17 families in Tovhid town in Sabzevar city to test system hardware. The output of these information and ADA database was used to test the performance of software part of the proposed system. In this system, at first citizen information through a wireless sensor network (WSN) is received and these data is transmitted to the central data processing system (CDPS). In the CDPS, intelligent software uses SVM technique based on 8 features to classify data and warns diabetes person due statistical changes. Results: Acceptable level of accuracy of the proposed system with 95.02%±1.245%, sensitivity 98.30±0.85% and specificity of 97.52±1.06% and Kappa coefficient equal to 0.95 is optimal performance Conclusion: Accuracy and high speed in data classification make the exact output of the software which is available online information so specialist will be able to alert suspect patients or identity diabetes patients without referring them to therapeutic centers.
