Posted below are reports written by Dr. Kossoff that discuss using the Atkins Diet for Seizures. Thank you, Dr. Kossoff, for sharing this with us. Note these are in pdf format.
- The First Atkins Study: “Efficacy of the Atkins Diet as Therapy for Intractable Epilepsy”
- “More Fat and Fewer Seizures: Dietary Therapies for Epilepsy”
- “A Modified Atkins Diet is Effective for the Treatment of Intractable Pediatric Epilepsy”
Note: Because of the success and spreading popularity of this manner of treating seizures, more and more doctors, nutritionists, neurological centers and hospitals are offering support. In some cases, the work with studies (and grants) is being repeated in new parts of the world. Ask your doctor for a referral!
