Just a quick post.
A study, published by the Lancet Neurology, on-line May 3, 2008, showed that children following a ketogenic diet, suffered fewer seizures than the control group children. (62·0% vs 136·9%, 75% decrease, 95% CI 42.4–107.4%; p<0·0001)
The ketogenic diet has been widely and successfully used to treat children with drug-resistant epilepsy since the 1920s.
The aim of this study was to test the efficacy of the ketogenic diet in a randomised controlled trial.
Like most Atkin dieters, the most frequent side-effects reported during the study were constipation, vomiting, lack of energy, and hunger.
