Diabetes classification is one of the most crucial applications of healthcare diagnosis. Even though various studies have been conducted in this application, the classification problem remains challenging. Fuzzy logic techniques have recently obtained impressive achievements in different application domains especially medical diagnosis. Fuzzy logic technique is not able to deal with data of a large number of input variables in constructing a classification model. In this research, a fuzzy logic technique using greedy hill climbing feature selection methods was proposed for the classification of diabetes. A dataset of 520 patients from the Hospital of Sylhet in Bangladesh was used to train and evaluate the proposed classifier. Six classification criteria were considered to authenticate the results of the proposed classifier. Comparative analysis proved the effectiveness of the proposed classifier against Naive Bayes, support vector machine, K-nearest neighbour, decision tree, and multilayer perceptron neural network classifiers. Results of the proposed classifier demonstrated the potential of fuzzy logic in analyzing diabetes patterns in all classification criteria.
