Diabetes type 1 seems to be more prevalent in epilepsy, and low‐carbohydrate diets improve glycemic control in diabetes type 2, but data on the use of the classic ketogenic diet (KD) in epilepsy and diabetes are scarce. We present 15 months of follow‐up of a 3 years and 6 months old girl with diabetes type 1 (on the KD), right‐sided hemiparesis, and focal epilepsy due to a malformation of cortical development. Although epileptiform activity on electroencephalography (EEG) persisted (especially… Expand
Successful Treatment of Type 1 Diabetes and Seizures With Combined Ketogenic Diet and Insulin
TLDR
The case of a 2-year-old girl who presented to the emergency department with 1-week history of decreased activity, polyuria, and decreased oral intake was reported, and the KD was resumed along with the simultaneous use of insulin glargine and insulin aspart. Expand
Epileptogenicity of diabetes and antiepileptogenicity of ketogenic states: Clarity or confusion?
TLDR
Multiple other hypotheses have been proposed to explain the increased occurrence of seizures in diabetes, which include microvascular damage, local brain damage, immune abnormalities, metabolic factors, and gene mutation. Expand
Low-Carb and Ketogenic Diets in Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes
TLDR
Evidence of carbohydrates restriction in both pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes, through gut microbiota modification, and treatment of type 2 diabetes is reviewed, addressing the legitimate concerns about the use of such diets in patients who are ketosis-prone and often have not completed their growth. Expand
Epilepsy in children with type 1 diabetes mellitus: Pathophysiological basis and clinical hallmarks.
TLDR
Epilepsy management does not differ between patients with and without diabetes and insulin, nutritional recommendations and physical activity may also produce significant benefits on seizures control and possible therapeutic alternatives in selected cases include immunosuppressive drugs (in patients with GADAbs) and ketogenic diet. Expand
Type 1 diabetes mellitus successfully managed with the paleolithic ketogenic diet
TLDR
Marked increase in C peptide level within two months indicates that the paleolithic ketogenic diet may halt or reverse autoimmune processes destructing pancreatic beta cell function in T1DM. Expand
Can a ketogenic diet be safely used to improve glycaemic control in a child with type 1 diabetes?
A 5-year-old boy with known type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM), treated with insulin, presents to the paediatric diabetes outpatient department for his routine clinic review. The family have started theExpand
Treatment of Diabetes and Diabetic Complications With a Ketogenic Diet
TLDR
Limiting both protein and carbohydrates as in a classic ketogenic diet remarkably reduces blood glucose in animal models of type 1 and type 2 diabetes and reverses diabetic nephropathy. Expand
The ketogenic diet for the treatment of myoclonic astatic epilepsy in a child with type 1 diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
The successful use of the ketogenic diet is reported in a child with myoclonic astatic epilepsy and type 1 diabetes. Expand
Long-term outcome and tolerability of the ketogenic diet in drug-resistant childhood epilepsy—The Austrian experience
TLDR
Good long-term effects of the ketogenic diet on seizure frequency, EEG and neurological development are found, despite the retrospective nature of the study and the inhomogeneous patient sample. Expand
The Nervous System and Metabolic Dysregulation: Emerging Evidence Converges on Ketogenic Diet Therapy
TLDR
The emerging relationship between a KD and adenosine is described as a way to reset brain metabolism and neuronal activity and disrupt a cycle of dysfunction. Expand

Does epilepsy occur more frequently in children with Type 1 diabetes?
TLDR
To determine the prevalence and type of epilepsy in a large paediatric diabetes clinic, the question of whether children with diabetes are more prone to epilepsy, possibly as a result of lowered seizure threshold, was studied. Expand
Reconciling Diabetes Management and the Ketogenic Diet in a Child with Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Deficiency
TLDR
A 4-year-old girl with pyruvate dehydrogenase deficiency, static encephalopathy, and seizure disorder treated with the ketogenic diet presented in severe diabetic ketoacidosis has excellent glycemic control, improved activity level, significant developmental achievements, and, perhaps most striking, catch-up linear growth from < 5th percentile to the 50th percentile. Expand
Effects of ketogenic diet on epileptiform activity in children with therapy resistant epilepsy
TLDR
This study shows that KD reduces the number of IEDs, especially during sleep, and shows a correlation between reduction in epileptiform activity and clinical seizures and improvement in QOL or attention. Expand
The efficacy of the ketogenic diet-1998: a prospective evaluation of intervention in 150 children.
TLDR
The ketogenic diet should be considered as alternative therapy for children with difficult-to-control seizures and is more effective than many of the new anticonvulsant medications and is well tolerated by children and families when it is effective. Expand
Effects of ketogenic diet on development and behavior: preliminary report of a prospective study.
TLDR
The ketogenic diet is increasingly used for the management of difficult-to-control seizures in children and the effects of the diet on development, behavior, and parenting stress are described, suggesting beneficial effects on cognition and behavior. Expand
Beneficial effects of ketogenic diet in obese diabetic subjects
TLDR
This study shows the beneficial effects of ketogenic diet in obese diabetic subjects following its long-term administration and demonstrates that in addition to its therapeutic value, low carbohydrate diet is safe to use for a longer period of time in obesity diabetic subjects. Expand
A Low Carbohydrate Diet in Type 1 Diabetes
TLDR
The present report shows that a 70-90 g carbohydrate diet is a feasible long-term alternative in the treatment of type 1 diabetes and leads to improved glycaemic control. Expand
Restricted-carbohydrate diets in patients with type 2 diabetes: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
Meta-regression analyses show that hemoglobin A1c, fasting glucose, and some lipid fractions (triglycerides) improved with lower carbohydrate-content diets, and overall effect on weight was equivocal among the studies evaluated in this meta-analysis. Expand
An association between type 1 diabetes and idiopathic generalized epilepsy
TLDR
