Hi Avonlady,I was wondering

Hi Avonlady,I was wondering how you found out that your seizures were caused by low blood sugar? I am sorry if I am prying, I hope it is not too much. But when I was 21 I had my first seizure and I have them randomly and sparingly every 2 to 3 years. I am trying to find out where I need to go to try and find out what is causing them because they are not the normal seizure and have certain things in common. I hope I am not prying and if I am by all means you do not have to answer. I just want help.
