Ketogenic Diet Clinic

The Ketogenic diet is a high fat, low carbohydrate diet that can be an effective treatment of epilepsy.

The Ketogenic Diet Clinic is held every three months and is staffed by a pediatric epileptologist and dietician with special attention to the response to dietary therapy while insuring adequate nutrition and tolerability of the diet. Patients scheduled for this clinic are currently on the Ketogenic diet and are being seen for follow up appointments.
