Diabetes is a chronic disease caused by a deficiency of insulin that is prevalent around the world. Although doctors diagnose diabetes by testing glucose levels in the blood, they cannot determine whether a person is diabetic on this basis alone. Classification algorithms are an immensely helpful approach to accurately predicting diabetes. Merging two algorithms like the K-Nearest Neighbor (K-NN) Algorithm and the Genetic Algorithm (GA) can enhance prediction even more. Choosing an optimal

This paper proposes a model that combines K-NN and GA with Adaptive Parameter Control to help medical practitioners confirm their diagnosis of diabetes in patients. The UCI Pima Indian Diabetes Dataset is deployed on the Anaconda python platform. The mean accuracy of the proposed model is 0.84102, which is 1% better than the best result in the literature review.
