Epilepsy/seizures caused by energetic deficit leading to calcium overload

Yet another study demonstrating that not only is a chronic, “incurable” disease of unknown origin treatable but that its main cause is energetic/metabolic and linked to impaired glucose metabolism. Specifically, the study demonstrated that impaired pyruvate transport into the mitochondria is sufficient to both cause new seizure activity in otherwise healthy organisms, as well as … Read more
