Yes . It's treatable. You need to take regular medication . If one of the parents is suffering from bipolar disorder than there is a slight increase in chances of have bipolar disorder in children. Over all in general population chances of getting bipolar disorder is Almost 1% which I suggest you should worry.Keep a follow up with a psychiatrist for early detection and management of the episodes
