Jan 13, 2017 · Ketogenic diet for children in Epilepsy & Seizures

Hello! Yes. We love the Charlie Foundation website! Keto diet is much stricter with protein than the MAD diet but you could probably get some useful recipes out of this book. We are on a low enough ratio that this book works well: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1936303779/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1. I make up a lot of my recipes and calculate it out by hand. We love to cook and our daughter has a well-developed palate so we love to include her in all the meals that we have.

Hello. Thank you. My daughter is a patient at Mayo Clinic. We travel 14 hours each way to go there every 3 months. I’ve done a lot of research and we have the keto diet pretty well down. We make our own recipes so our daughter can have the same meals we have (with some additional tweaks for her). We have had genetic testing and the gene mutation for Glut 1 was not found at that time. The keto diet changed our lives and, especially, our little girl’s life. She is full of energy and most of her seizure activity has stopped. We had been to other hospitals in Denver and Salt Lake but nobody had any answers until we came to Mayo. We will never go anywhere else. Mayo is excellent in patient care, efficacy, and communication.
