Epilepsy Prevention

Epilepsy prevention involves minimizing the risk of suffering from the underlying condition that can lead to chronic seizures.

It can be as simple as wearing protective gear like seatbelts or helmets while driving, riding or playing sports, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Getting proper medical care, including making sure that immunizations and vaccinations are up to date can help lessen the risk of the diseases and infections that can lead to epilepsy, according to the CDC.

Living a healthy lifestyle—eating and sleeping well and getting regular exercise—is another way to minimize the dangers associated with epilepsy.
