Doctors tested me for various illnesses, including cancer. All the blood tests came out negative except for Celiac, where the consumption of gluten damages the lining of the small intestine. In order to further confirm my diagnosis, I had a biopsy done where doctors took a sample of my small intestine to examine for the effects of Celiac. The sample did show damage, and my doctor converted me to a completely gluten-free diet. As soon as I made these dietary changes, the bloating and the awful stomach aches subsided. I started to gain weight and live a healthier lifestyle.

In this single-center trial, children and adolescents with drug-resistant epilepsy who had undergone epilepsy surgery had a significantly higher rate of freedom from seizures and better scores with respect to behavior and quality of life than did those who continued medical therapy alone at 12 months. Surgery resulted in anticipated neurologic deficits related to the region of brain resection. (Funded by the Indian Council of Medical Research and others; Clinical Trial Registry–India number, .)

Surgery for Drug-Resistant Epilepsy in Children | NEJM

In this single-center trial, we randomly assigned 116 patients who were 18 years of age or younger with drug-resistant epilepsy to undergo brain surgery appropriate to the underlying cause of epilepsy along with appropriate medical therapy (surgery group, 57 patients) or to receive medical therapy alone (medical-therapy group, 59 patients). The patients in the medical-therapy group were assigned to a waiting list for surgery. The primary outcome was freedom from seizures at 12 months. Secondary outcomes were the score on the Hague Seizure Severity scale, the Binet–Kamat intelligence quotient, the social quotient on the Vineland Social Maturity Scale, and scores on the Child Behavior Checklist and the Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory.
