Night. I want to ask what foods and drinks are not allowed for a child who has had a seizure and is it true that the seizure can happen again. Thank you beforehand.
seizures in children can be caused by various causes such as: febrile seizures, epilepsy, electrolyte disturbances, tumors.
febrile seizure is a seizure that occurs preceded by fever. Fever usually reaches 38.5 degrees Celsius. The fever can be caused due to various causes such as gastrointestinal infections, respiratory infections. Fever seizures can occur in children aged 6 months to 5 years. So that febrile seizures can recur at a later date. If your child has a history of febrile seizures, it is advisable to provide anti-seizure medication at home. In addition, give fever medicine if the child has a fever.
no specific food or drink is prohibited for febrile seizures. Your child can consume a variety of foods and drinks. However, it is recommended that the consumption of nutritious foods that contain high protein so that the child's immune system becomes stronger.
