London: A new study has revealed that routine screening for psychiatric, cognitive and social problems could enhance the quality of care and quality of life for children and adults with epilepsy.The study was conducted by UC Irvine neurologist Dr. Jack Lin and colleagues at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Amedeo Avogadro University in Italy.Physicians who treat those with epilepsy often focus on seizures, Lin said.However, patients show an increased prevalence of psychiatric issues (mood, anxiety or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorders), cognitive disorders (in memory, language or problem solving) and social difficulties (involving employment or personal interactions).The relationship between epilepsy and these complications is complex and poorly understood.Lin said they might present greater problems for a patient if left untreated.
