In a bid to better understand the neurological causes of epilepsy, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a series of new guidelines for parents.
The guidelines advise parents to get their children checked out and have them evaluated.
If the child is seizure-free, their symptoms should be mild and less severe than usual.
If they have seizures, they should be treated and treated well.
If symptoms are severe enough to warrant a medical evaluation, the child should be monitored for the next week.
If it’s too late, it’s important to seek medical help.
These guidelines come as a result of a review of all available information on the neurological disorders of childhood epilepsy, and the National Institutes of Health recently issued a guidance on the disorder.
If you or someone you know has epilepsy, we encourage you to seek the advice of a family physician.
