I have been doing some research trying to help my sister who has a 2 yr old son who has now had 7 seizures. He has been to a neuro and they did a cat scan said all was normal, said it was ferbile seizures and put him on an anti-seizure medication which hasn't stopped the seizures, but the problem is ferbile seizures are caused by high fevers and he gets these seizures without fever, she has told the drs this but they don't seem to be listening to her. I have read that diabetes can cause a seizure, so I told her to bring him to be checked for this. My question is if it is from diabetes would that be why the seizure meds don't stop the seizures? I can't believe that these drs seem to be so unconcerned that he keeps having them. His doseage was upped a few months ago and it hasn't stopped them. Have any of you had a similar situaton? Or anyone with a diabetic child, what made you get them checked for diabetes?
