Low blood sugar and seizures?

I've had low blood sugar most of my life at times hypoglycemia and just deal with it by eating better, peanut butter etc. I've noticed that over the years I've had seizures and think I'm having low blood sugar. Any one experience this? Thanks, Jeanne

I think low blood sugar was one of the contributing factors in the initial onset of my seizures. I also think it was a factor when a particular anti-seizure med (Zonisamide) gave me low blood sugar and I had a big seizure. (I've since switched off that med).
