  1. Seizures And Celiac

    Hey all, first post here. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease (after a large portion of diabetics at my children's hospital were tested because of their correlation) when I was 15, but stopped following the diet when I was 18 or so. When I was 22, I had two grand mal seizures. After that I was put on Dilantin, a medication to rise a person's phenytoin levels which was slightly lower than it should have been. I was then stable until last year (age 28) when I had two minor seizures within a couple of months. No one ever mentioned the possible connection between my diagnosis of celiac disease and seizures. I've recently been tested for Gluten insensitivity and my tests were through the roof, so I clearly do have Celiac disease. I'm hoping gluten was the cause of my seizures as I never really knew why they occurred.
