Classification and Regression Trees: A Possible Method for Creating Risk Groups for Progression to Diabetic Nephropathy
Mehmood G. Sayyad, G. Gopal and Arjan K. Shahani

Abstract:
This study describes the use of classification and regression tree (CART) analysis for analysing the progression of diabetic nephropathy (damage to kidneys) among type 2 diabetics in India. We also discuss a modelling approach for the development of an operational model, at the level of individual patients, for an early detection and treatment of this common complication of diabetes in India. Data for this modelling work is taken from a prospective study "Wellcome Diabetes Study" undertaken by the Diabetes Unit, King Edward Memorial Hospital, Pune, India.
