    The ketogenic diet is a recognised and proven therapy for epilepsy since the ’s. It has primarily been used in children with poorly controlled seizures. It works better with certain epilepsy syndromes, and can help reduce seizures in two out of three children and may prevent seizures completely in one out of three. The ketogenic diet has been used to treat children with epilepsy for almost a century. Our center, which opened in , is the first-ever clinic to offer ketogenic diet therapy specially designed for adults with epilepsy. Our regimen is a modification of the classic ketogenic diet, similar to the Atkins diet.
