Epilepsy Awareness Month

Posted by Danny Williams  | 18 Nov 2019

 Epilepsy Awareness Month

  • Epilepsy can affect anyone with a brain.
  • Each year 150,000 more people are diagnosed with epilepsy.
  • Over a lifetime, one in 10 people will have a seizure, and one in 26 will develop epilepsy.

Epilepsy occurs regardless of age, gender, cultural or socio-economic background. Epilepsy can develop at any stage of life, but it is more common in children, adolescents, and people over 60. There are at least 40 different types of seizures. A person with epilepsy may experience one or more seizure type. Their behaviour during a seizure depends on the type of seizure and the area of the brain being affected. Around 70% of people living with epilepsy will gain control of their seizures by taking anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs). For the remaining 30%, their epilepsy is considered to be ‘uncontrolled’ or ‘drug resistant’ and alternative treatment options, such as neurosurgery or vagal nerve stimulation, may be offered to reduce or eliminate seizure activity. Some childhood epilepsy syndromes are ‘outgrown’.

Epilepsy impacts on people in different ways. For some people, living with epilepsy will not have a big impact on their life. Others may experience some physical, psychological and social impacts. Epilepsy can impact on a person’s education, employmentlifestylehealthsocial and family life.

Epilepsy is sometimes described as a “hidden” condition or disability, because it may not be obvious that a person has epilepsy, unless they have a visible seizure. Sometimes, even the person living with epilepsy doesn’t realise they have had a seizure.

Epilepsy research can help transform and improve the lives of people with epilepsy. There are now many Australian and international investigations trying to better understand epilepsy, discover new treatments and find a cure.
