How Can Ketogenic Dietary Therapies Help People With Epilepsy?

The ‘Holy Grail’ of the Ketogenic Diet is for a patient to be initiated on the diet, become seizure free, reduce/remove the amount of anti-epileptic medication taken, wean the diet off after a period of 2 years and STAY seizure free.

This DOES happen for some, but there are also other degrees of success on the Ketogenic Diet:

  • Reduction in number of and intensity of seizures
  • Reduction in medications and their subsequent side effects
  • Increased alertness
  • Improvement in behavioural problems
  • Improvement in learning ability

Go sugar-free for November to raise awareness of Ketogenic Therapy for complex epilepsy and funds for the Ketogenic Diet Charity supporting families and professionals, Matthew’s Friends.

Join us in raising awareness of medical ketogenic dietary therapies, where children and adults are sugar-free every day.
