Diabetic Seizures

The link below gives a very good article on seizures.
I had seizures starting in 1945, the year I was diagnosed. I was 6 years old then. I continued having seizures for many years. I did not have a meter for determining my blood sugar for my first 40 years, and I did not have basal and bolus insulins until the mid 1990s. I had occasional seizures until the 1990s. I was never given a glucagon shot until the 1980s. I am very fortunate to have parents, and later on, a wife who brought me out of those seizures prior to the 1980s. There are some articles that indicate that seizures can cause brain damage, Despite having many many seizures for 50 years, I do not think my brain has been damaged. I became a college math professor in 1963, and I am a healthy diabetic after 71 years of type 1.
