I'm sorry that you have to go through this. I come from a family of epileptics. The difference between my family members who care for themselves, and the ones who don't is staggering. The overweight epileptics overall suffer from worse seizures (tonic clonic), when they hit the ground they manage to do far worse damage to their bodies and end up with concussions more frequently. Epileptic medications make the liver work very hard, why not kick it while it's down by adding extra weight related medications?

Your sister may not believe it, but there is a way to get in shape, and stay out of danger. I have been doing just that for years. Sometimes I have to end my workout early, sometimes I am so dizzy that I need to sit on the senior citizen bikes at the gym, sometimes I have to stop and have a small snack (usually fruit). But at least I have trained myself to be able to handle a 3 hour work out without problems.

The brain has a lot of plasticity. It means that the brain has a surprising ability to heal itself and create work-arounds when permanent damage occurs. If you are an epileptic who does not provide the brain with the nutrition it needs to re-build and repair you will not have a good time. Eating a whole food, plant centered diet is very important. Perhaps you sister doesn't realize that she is fighting for her life. Right now the majority of my overweight family members are experiencing signs of early onset dementia, they are in their mid to late 50's.

I've heard a lot about tumblr... Never in my life even opened it on a web browser. I've heard it's retarded over there

A ketogenic diet has been shown to help control seizures. The epilepsy foundation recommends it for children. It also helps in adult seizure disorders, but the foundation doesn't recommend it because "it's hard to follow". http://www.epilepsy.com/learn/treating-seizures-and-epilepsy/dietary-therapies/ketogenic-diet

Ketogenic diets are really easy to follow. You can just eat fatty meats. Ribeye every day is delicious. http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/neurology_neurosurgery/centers_clinics/epilepsy/pediatric_epilepsy/ketogenic_diet.html

It's so strange to me to not try to manage a condition with diet before taking a pill, even if the diet was hard.

Keto is so easy once you're accustomed, and I'm glad you mentioned its relationship to controlling epilepsy. How hard is it eating bacon and eggs everyday and a nice leafy green salad with no croutons for lunch?

Since you brought it up, I'm probably preaching to the choir, but I roll my eyes at the hard to follow nonsense.

I look forward to having kids just so they can shitlord with me.

Most obese parents don't realize their kids are obese too. Someone has to tell them.

I have epilepsy. Was diagnosed at 14 with it. The healthier I keep my body, the less symptoms I have of it. mine manifests through migraines so severe, I have a seizure. I typically am fine, except for the very few times I don't eat as healthy as usual a few days in a row. Diet and exercise are paramount to helping control epilepsy. I still get occasional migraines, but have been seizure free for over a decade. Even with cancer treatments and all that crap, it is still under control. I have not been on any medication for it in years.
