About a month ago, my daughter became hypoglycemic, had a seizure and has been advised to take medications since EEG showed some epilepsy. The EEG was taken on the second day of the attack, and the doctors can't differentiate whether the seizures where due to low glucose level or epilepsy. Is there any specific test to rule out epilepsy? If the seizures were due to low glucose levels is it correct to give anticonvulsant medications?
If seizures occur or if there are persistent EEG abnormalities, then anticonvulsant medications are sometimes recommended. You should go back to your daughter's doctors and discuss their ideas and plan in more detail.
