I attended a wonderful conference put on by the Epilepsy Foundation of AZ that helped me a great deal as the wife of a husband with epilepsy. The speakers were wonderful (several Dr.'s who specialize in epilepsy) and several people who gave moving stories of their struggles with epilepsy. I found out at this conference that Dilantin can cause osteoporos, and I am so thankful for that information and subsequently had my husband tested and he does have osteoporosis. He had numerous falls and fractured his pelvis in one fall. I was so glad to learn this about his medication, and so glad for the support I got at the confetemce! This is a great organization and I hope it gets the recognition and support it deserves for being an advocate for all those living with epilepsy. Thank-you.
