epilepsy diabetesdiabetes mellitus is not the cause of epilepsy. The high content of sugar in the blood can cause convulsions, which are often confused with epileptic, however, the difference is huge.

For epilepsy characterized by recurring seizures, lasting from 15 minutes and above, while at high sugar or, on the contrary, with a sharp drop of sugar in the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus may appear short-term (up to 15 minutes duration) of seizures, which are not of a systemic nature.

This is a brain disease whose causes are in most cases unknown. It is characterized by regular short break in one of the parts of the brain, which is caused by a failure in the interaction between its nerve cells (about 20 billion) and neural connections. Most interesting is that epilepsy is not classified as a hereditary disease, and the likelihood that the parents of epileptics will suffer and children is extremely low.

to Provoke the attack can quite a large number of factors or combination of factors. First of all, neurologists (doctors of this profile are engaged in this problem) a high-risk call various traumatic brain injuries, malignant and benign brain tumors, alcoholism, drug addiction, brain hemorrhage, and congenital abnormalities.

If the attack passed quickly and within a month or two was not repeated, it is, as we said above, simple cramps. They are called random. They can even cause body overheating and sunstroke. However, if the attack was quite intense and long, and then within a month it was repetition, and at normal sugar levels, it could very well be talking about epilepsy.
