Hello. I was scrolling through this list. My brother has epilepsy- he is now 23. He also has Cerebral Palsy and Autism. As a baby he had alternating hemoplegia of infancy and suffered from multiple strokes.
When he was 12 he started having seizures again after being seizure free for many years. THe next few years we ran the gambits with all the different medications.
As a teenager he started the ketogenic diet, and his seizures almost stopped.
He was on that diet for five years, and today is on the Atkins diet. Looking back over history my mother noticed that he was also put on depakote aroiund the same time he started the ketogenic diet. But we also notice now that if he has too many carbs than he also has ketogenic activity.
His neurologist doesn't know exactly how the diet works, but as it seems to he says to leave well enough alone. My brother is also on a few different medications and he sees a good neurologist up in chicago.
Has anyone here had experience with diets like Atkins or the ketogenic diet?
