Item Description...
Sometimes called the “miracle diet,” the ketogenic diet has helped doctors treat difficult-to-control epileptic seizures in thousands of children. Coauthored by two respected Johns Hopkins neurologists, <i>The Ketogenic Diet</i> continues to be the definitive guide for parents, physicians, and dieticians wanting to implement this strict diet. This fourth edition is extensively updated to reflect current advances in understanding how the diet works, how it should be used, and the future role of the diet as a treatment. The best-seller also includes sample meal plans, a food database, a section on how the Atkins and modified ketogenic diet can be used as alternative diets to control epilepsy, and much more.

Ketogenic Diet/Modified Atkins Diet  Jul 21, 2008
First advice--don't try this (or any other type of diet therapy) without consulting the correct professionals--in this case, a neurologist and a registered dietitian. Having said that, my daughter began having severe seizures just before her third birthday. Medications helped marginally. We then started her on the Modified Atkins Diet, a spin-off of the Ketogenic Diet pioneered at Johns Hopkins by the authors of this book. This updated edition contains info about the Modified Atkins Diet. Long story short, my daughter has been seizure free for nearly a year and a half and we are weaning her off her medicine. THIS HAS CHANGED EVERYTHING--for someone with epilepsy, this book is of critical importance as a serious alternative to anti-convulsive medications.
Thought provoking information  Mar 25, 2007
I'm interested in unusual therapies, and know someone who has a child with multiple disabilities including a seizure disorder. I found a videotape about this diet at a rummage sale a few years ago, and while it makes the diet sound relatively simple, this book says otherwise and goes into detail about people who are good candidates for the diet and those who are not. Many testimonials and case studies are presented as well.

The woman I know was given this option and said, "We don't want to starve our child." After reading this book, I can see where she was coming from. The restricted calories don't concern me as much as the fluid restriction, which could potentially be very dangerous and the book addresses this problem as well.

For the proper person, this diet could potentially be a lifesaver and it's worth trying if all factors are appropriate.
The Ketogenic Diet 4th Edition 2007  Mar 20, 2007
This book contains up to date information in relation to the ketogenic diet and other seizure control options that is also easy to read and understand by non professional people.
Very highly recommended as a top alternative to medication for kids with epilepsy.  Feb 8, 2007
If you have or know a child with epilepsy, THE KETOGENIC DIET: A TREATMENT FOR CHILDREN AND OTHERS WITH EPILEPSY is a 'must' for your consideration: it offers a solution beyond medication which provides a doctor-supervised diet high in fat and low in carbs and proteins, which limits calories - and is proven to control seizures. There've been many advances in the field, so this updated 4th edition is essential even for library holdings with prior editions. Besides the latest research, this book includes a new section on the Atkins diet and other alternative nutritional therapies. Very highly recommended as a top alternative to medication for kids with epilepsy.

The Ketogenic Diet: A Treatment for Children and Others with Epilepsy  Jan 9, 2007
I bought this book for my daughter who has a child with epilepsy. It was very imformative and helpful. Reading the case histories and the mistakes that were inadvertently made, diet-wise, helped us lookout for the same pitfalls. I would highly recommend this book.
