Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.


Absence seizures have no direct relationship with diet.


Sleep may induce seizure and EEG changes.


Make video of episodes and then consult a neurologist.


EEG testing may be required.


The cause if absence seizures are varied and depends upon age and associated features.
