Epilepsy is one of the neurological disorder characterised by a period of epileptic seizures. The findings reveal that type 1 diabetes may increase epilepsy risk three fold. About 25% to 45% of epilepsy cases can be due to structural modifications, metabolic disorders, and genetic characters but early research has also claimed that diabetes might explain some idiopathic seizures, Dr Chou and their colleagues wrote. Those people with type 1 diabetes but without hypoglycaemia found to have a 2.67 fold increased risk of developing epilepsy during medication vs. the other group, whereas those with both type 1 diabetes and hypoglycaemia might have about 16.5 fold increased risk of developing epilepsy.
