Statistical Question About LGS

Posted by Curiosity!! on April 12, 2002 at 10:26:11:

Would like to know in your estimation, ballpark, what percentage of the U.S. population likely has LGS.

Thank You

My estimate would be 75% and climbing!

Thank You S.H.A.P.E. I am curious if Dr. Stoll estimates about the same. Also what percentage babies are born with LGS. Also how and why this can occur in unborn babies. If it is due to environmental stress conditions in the womb the LGS should clear up quickly after birth.

Thank You

Hi, Curiosity.

I would agree with SHAPE! That % is less in the young and more in the elderly but that is a pretty good estimate. A very small % actually has it at birth and those are mostly genetically very susceptible individuals who have to be knowledgably careful all their lives.

Remember that there is a wide range of severity of LGS in the population who have it.

As in all chronic conditions, people are getting them earlier and earlier in life in this country.

Walt
