On time diagnosis of chronic Kidney disease problems is essential because of patient pain and cost of treatment. To alleviate this hazard, in this research a type-1 fuzzy inference system is proposed to diagnosis chronic Kidney disease. The knowledge representation of this system is provided from high level, based on lifestyle of the patient and historical data about his/her problem and some of the clinical examination. We use nine features for diagnosis disease these are age, FBS (Fasting Blood Sugar), Blood urea, Serum creatinine, Na, K, Hemoglobin, rbc (red blood cells), wbc (white blood cells). First we generate type-1 fuzzy inference system then improve our FIS with ANFIS. We generate type-1 fuzzy system for diagnosis chronic kidney disease with real data.
