Tips to Prevent Epilepsy

Epilepsy may be preventable in some situations, experts say. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention mentions these potential opportunities for prevention:
  •  Seek prenatal care during pregnancy to reduce the risk of complications during pregnancy and delivery.
  •  Get all recommended immunizations to ward off serious infections.
  •  Protect against traumatic brain injury. Use bicycle and sports helmets as appropriate, and take steps to reduce the risk of falls.
  •  Manage risk factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol to reduce your chances of stroke.
