The Epilepsy Foundation estimates that 2.7 million Americans have epilepsy, and that an additional 181,000 new cases are diagnosed every year. Being diagnosed with any chronic disease can cause confusion and anxiety to the uninformed patient. Written by an expert in the field, Epilepsy: 199 Answers, 3rd Edition, continues to provide accurate, up-to-date and comprehensible medical information for epilepsy patients and family members. Easy-to-read, informative, and time-tested, this question and answer book covers everything from brain surgery to the Atkins diet; readers will also enjoy a first-rate resource section, and a health record tracker so patients can accurately chart their progress and receive optimal care.
