Hi Sandly1:

You are experiencing diabetic seizures. The seizures will take place when you have extremely low blood sugar. In addition they can also take place with high blood sugar. The increase of sugar will most likely increase the active state of the neurons in the brain. It doesn’t mean you do have epilepsy but I can’t guarantee that. Hopefully the more tests you have the more understanding and answers you will get of your current state.

Hoping the best for you. 😊


Thanks for that


Sure thing. 😊
