Abstract: Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a major medical problem and can be cured if treated it in the early stages. Usually, people are not aware that medical tests we take for different purposes could contain valuable information concerning kidney diseases. Consequently, attributes of various medical tests are investigated to distinguish which attributes may contain helpful information about the disease. The objective of this paper is to make use of such attributes. The information says that it helps us to measure the severity of the problem, the predicted survival of the patient after the illness, the pattern of the disease and work for curing the disease. Hence we considered a data-set with different attributes that can be found in general medical tests, machine learning is applied by developing a decision tree using the C4.5 algorithm and predicted whether the person is normal or suffering from kidney problem. This proposed model will be developed using Java language and is implemented in Net-Beans platform.
