You can be tested for food allergies to see if you have any of those problems. If that were the case SPECIFIC foods or types of food MAY lower your threshold or cause seizures depending on the situation and or results of the tests.
Common examples of allergies we hear in the media are nuts, some can't have any seafood (lobster, crab, shrimp). These are types of food allergies where people cannot have physical contact or consume ANY of the product or they will (may) show reactions. It does not have to be related to seizures/epileptic patients.
As for the seizures I would try to follow the Doctor's lead and see what is said for your case. More testing may be conducted. In MOST cases they TEND to put us (the patient) on medications to control seizures. Much better than no control and risking an accident or onset of seizures and needing to visit the emergency room.
