Living with Epilepsy. Lets talk about it.

Good Morning!!

Recently I learned about the Ketogenic diet, and would like to share a bit of information about it.  There are so many diet plans to help you lose weight and improve your overall health.  First, before you decide to begin any diet you must DISCUSS ANY DIET PLAN WITH  YOUR INTERNIST AND/OR NEUROLOGIST.   The ketogenic diet (often called keto) is a very high fat, low carbohydrate diet very similar to the Atkins and other low-carb diets.

The Ketogenic diet MAY have benefits against Diabetes, Cancer, Epilepsy and Alzheimers’s disease.

To find out more information about this diet call your Neurologist or Internist.

I look forward to hearing from you.  Have a great day.

One thought on “Living with Epilepsy. Lets talk about it.

  1. We started on March 27, as my son has seizures that were hard to control. He had been on medication since he was 3 and is 24 now.
    My son has moderately (not high, not low) functioning a-typical autism. He has had seizures since the age of 3 with periods when his meds worked.
    Increasingly however, he got more migraines and more mild seizures to a point we could not handle it anymore. It is so painful to see your kid suffer. He could not sleep, he could not eat and he felt miserable. He had absentee seizures resulting in his memory failing.

    Today it is May 20th and it is nearly 8 weeks that we started him on the keto-low GI diet as described by the Charlie Foundation. His neurologist recommended it. Thank goodness there is a lot of information and recipes on the net.

    All changes are positive: he sleeps better, is happier, is learning more, has had only 3 short-during migraines and so far no seizures. His appetite is good, he likes the food, he is active and has his sense of humour back. His weight for the first time is stable and perfect.

    We keep on going….the only frustrating thing is that taking him out for lunch or supper is harder.
