A special diet called the Ketogenic diet can help some people with Epilepsy control their seizures. The diet is a special high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that must be prescribed by a doctor and monitored by a Dietician.
I am fortunate that my daughter’s seizures are currently being controlled by her medication and changing her diet has not been a consideration. Much the way that starting medication was overwhelming and scary before we started (who am I kidding? It’s still overwhelming and scary), I imagine that changing to this diet must be quite challenging for the patients and families. Have any of you had experience with the Ketogenic diet?
