Children with Epilepsy due to Genetic Abnormality respond better to Ketogenic Diet- American Research finds

New research from the Ann & Robert H Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago has found that young children with epilepsy caused by genetic abnormality had a better response to the ketogenic diet compared to children with other types of epilepsy.

The ketogenic diet is a low carbohydrate, high fat diet that is used to treat epilepsy which has not responded to other treatments. More information on this can be found here.
