January 9, 2018 at 6:30PM - The Ketogenic Diet and Meeting the New Nutritionist

 

This lecture explored the different diets available for epilepsy as well as the process of initiation and therapy, the similarities and differences between the diets, side effects, how effective they are, and what you can and can’t eat on each diet. The diet therapy is not limited to children; adult patients are also very successful with controlling seizures on these diets.

Presented by Georgia Burlison, MS, RD, CDN
