Can seizures in an infant be caused by very low sodium and potassium?

My daughter was 5 weeks old when she started having seizures, Neurologist diagnosed her as not producing sodium and potassium. She was treated with Phenobarbital and was under his care for several years. She is now 40 and has a great life, family and career, however, recently she opened up and admitted she does not remember many things about her childhood up to age 8.  We decided to have her go and be reevaluated by her doctor and a Neurologist.  Worried she was originally misdiagnosed.

I believe so yes, the reason I agree is a I worked at a plant where one of the women fell over and had a seizure it was due to very low Sodium/Potassium Levels.
