Ketogenic Diet and Epilepsy (With Food Demonstration!) Presented by Georgia Burlison, MS, RD, CDN
Ketogenic Diet and Epilepsy (With Food Demonstration!)
This lecture will explore dietary therapy for the treatment of epilepsy. We will discuss the process of initiation and therapy, similarities and differences between the various diets, side effects, and examples of ketogenic foods. We will end with a demo of a keto approved snack. The diet therapy is not limited to children; adult patients are also very successful with controlling seizures on these diets.
