The ketogenic diet is an effective treatment for drug-resistant epilepsy. There are many different variations of the ketogenic diet which can fit your needs to make the diet a success for your epilepsy.
- The ketogenic diet as a treatment for epilepsy should ALWAYS be under the supervision of a dietician and neurologist.
- The ketogenic diet can be used to treat all seizure types.
- The ketogenic diet can take time to see effect. Do not be discouraged if you do not see immediate results.
- The ketogenic diet does not cause weight loss. When working with a dietician you are prescribed a certain number of calories per day. Of course, if weight loss is your goal your calorie amount can be tailored to help with this.
