Ketogenic diet for treatment of infantile spasms

Experience with the ketogenic diet in infants.

The ketogenic diet should be considered safe and effective treatment for infants with intractable seizures, particularly with respect to attention/alertness, activity level, and socialization.

Clinical Aspects of the Ketogenic Diet

This critical analysis of the ketogenic diet should provide the impetus for further clinical and basic research into the diet's application and mechanisms of action.

How does the ketogenic diet induce anti-seizure effects?

Medium-chain Triglyceride Ketogenic Diet, An Effective Treatment for Drug-resistant Epilepsy and A Comparison with Other Ketogenic Diets

The author has used up to >70% MCTKD diet to maximize seizure control with gastrointestinal side effects optimally controlled, and many more patients with epilepsy who are not appropriate for CKD or modified Atkins diet or low glycemic index treatment will benefit from this treatment.

Linear Growth of Children on a Ketogenic Diet

Whether the protein to energy ratio plays a role in linear growth of children on ketogenic diet is explored and a protein-to-energy ratio of 1.5 g protein/100 kcal is recommended to prevent growth retardation.
