hi there,

i think you have some electrolyte imbalace which is causing seizures. Sodium ( Na), Potassium (K), and Calcium are important ions in body and there deficiency or excess is likely to cause seizures. ion imbalace are common in patients with tubular kidney diseases. amiloride is likely to improve sodium related problems. generally these disorders are benign. one has to correct the electrolytes and that is it.
