How Is Epilepsy Prevented?
In most cases, epilepsy can’t be prevented. But once it’s diagnosed, it can be managed.
Changes in diet have been shown to improve seizures in children. Some people may need treatment for the rest of their lives to control seizures. Sometimes, seizures go away. Many children with epilepsy stop having seizures as they get older: more than 50% of children outgrow epilepsy.
Twenty years after an epilepsy diagnosis, 75% will have been seizure-free for at least five years — although some may still need to take daily medication. Epilepsy is considered to be resolved for people who have remained seizure-free for the past 10 years, with no seizure medications for the past five years.
