Hi @sakota Here is some more information on diabetic seizures: https://www.thediabetescouncil.com/diabetes-and-seizures-what-are-they-what-are-the-symptoms/

What are your symptoms? According to Mayo Clinic's website, diabetic seizures are generally associated with diabetic hypoglycemia (https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/diabetic-hypoglycemia/symptoms-causes/syc-20371525).


My hypoglycemia happened years ago while I was in college with my sons, and I didn't get help from my doctor, but changed things around after I found a paperback in a health store and following the eating instructions. Twice I had the five hour sugar test and twice I was either ignored at the outcome or chastised for my "unreasonable" behavior because I was so sick and was moaning. The second time I had to have my mother aid me in showering, dressing, and getting into bed. I was very frightened and decided I would never take that test ever again. I got no advice after the test. The atmosphere in my home was at crisis level and I was considered "neurotic" in a nutrition book I bought. The professor in my physiology class said most doctors wait until the insulin pump "burns out" and then they treat the resulting diabetes. After I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and radically changed my diet and eliminated the stress in my life, I am learning not only how to manage but how to improve my health to almost normal levels, most days, if I exercise enough for the food I eat. Since I am now 83, the metabolism is not what it used to be, but I am more successful than most of my friends at the management game. I want to advise my young grandson about his hypoglycemia problems he had in childhood, and don't know what to recommend about the risk of future diabetes. He has promised to never skip breakfast again, and is doing well. He is not living a stressful life, has a good job after college, a girlfriend, and loves to cook.
He drinks a little beer, but I warned him about that. He has always played sports and doesn't indulge in sweets. I make him and my son homemade granola which they carry in their vehicles, and it doesn't have sugar in it like the store products. Still I worry about his future because I didn't learn much in the beginning about healing or prevention. What should I study now? Dorisena
