GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - UF Health researchers are developing a system to help track children with diabetes in Florida.

A study found that nationally Type 1 diabetes is rising by nearly 2% every year, and Type 2 is increasing by almost 5%.

UF Health is creating a quicker and more accurate way to track children with the disease.

With a $1.2 million grant from the CDC, researchers are using OneFlorida Data Trust, a health records database, to calculate the number of affected children.
