Other Illnesses

Question from Granite Falls, North Carolina, USA:

My 30 year old daughter is using an insulin pump, and this week she had a seizure. Is this common at her age? Does she need to contact her doctor?

Answer:

First of all, it does not sound clear to me that the cause of the seizure is known so it may not be safe to assume it is from hypoglycemia. If it is from hypoglycemia, it is still important for her to contact her physician. It is not normal to have patients suffer low sugars that put them at risk for seizures.
