Lennox-Gastaut syndrome is an acute disorder that develops early in people during childhood. Seizures are common in children with LGS and can come in various forms. This disease is challenging to treat, but experts work on new treatments. Finding emotional and practical assistance can help you provide the greatest possible quality of life for your kid while dealing with the obstacles and stress that this illness entails.
Seizures commonly begin between the ages of 2 and 6. Learning challenges and developmental delays (such as sitting, crawling, and walking) can range from mild to severe in children with LGS. They may also have issues with their behavior.
Each child develops at his or her own pace, making it impossible to anticipate how a child with LGS will do. While most children have chronic seizures and a learning deficit, some children may react well to treatment and have fewer seizures. Some parents feel that following a diet known as the ketogenic diet is beneficial.
