  • PURPOSE To conduct the first randomized trial on classical and medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) versions of the ketogenic diet, examining efficacy and tolerability after 3, 6, and 12 months. [...] Key Method Treatment withdrawals were documented. Tolerability was assessed by questionnaire, and blood ketone levels were measured. RESULTS Of the 61 children who started a classical diet and the 64 who started an MCT diet, data from 94 were available for analysis: 45 classical and 49 MCT.Expand Abstract
