What is a seizure disorder?

A seizure involves an abnormal electrical event that affects your brain, causing limb twitching, muscle spasms, and even a loss of consciousness. Having multiple seizures may indicate a seizure disorder, which can result from metabolic imbalances in your body or as a side effect of a traumatic brain injury.

Dr. Trate can evaluate a seizure condition to determine the best course of treatment. Often medications are useful in managing seizure symptoms and preventing them from occurring again.

What treatment options are available for congestive heart failure?

Congestive heart failure is a progressive condition that occurs when fluid builds up around your heart, interfering with its blood-pumping capability.

When your heart muscles can’t pump blood properly, fluids can start to back up in other major organs, including your lungs and abdomen. This fluid build-up leads to swelling, irregular heartbeats, and shortness of breath.

If not properly treated, congestive heart failure can become life-threatening. Dr. Trate can determine what treatment options are right for you based on how progressed your heart failure is and your medical history. She may suggest making changes to your diet to cut out salt and unhealthy processed foods, as well as medication therapy to reduce fluid build-up.
