Can a urinary tract infection cause a seizure?

My stepdaughter has been recently diagnosed w/ pinworms, yeast infection and today had a seizure caused by a uti. (the doctor's say) She has type 1 diabetes, as do I. I have never had these many problems growing up w/ diabetes. My question ( sorry ) is… have u ever heard of uti causing seizure?

I have never heard of a UTI causing a seizure but I wouldn't rule it out. I am sure that it is a combination of all of ailments conditions. I doubt that the pinworms played much part in it but the UTI and yeast infection compounded with type diabetes probably contributed to it. I hope she gets better soon.

    I haven't heard of it but i'm sure it could happen. If her system is all out of whack and then you add an infection and maybe a fever from it, I can see it happening. Bless her heart I hope she gets better!
