A diet high in fat and low in carbohydrates can be helpful for people who have seizures. Monica Gonzalez, Epilepsy Advocate at Epilepsy Foundation of Florida, says the Nicholas Children’s Hospital’s has a keto clinic, but ketogenic diet is a diet that is very restrictive and hard to stick to.
“If there’s definitely a metabolic dysfunction that’s the cause of your seizures, then that may favor that, because you’re producing what are called ketones as a product of fat metabolism. So, if you don’t give your body glucose your body has a way to make glucose and it makes glucose converting fat to glucose which is why it’s a popular weight loss diet but it is very difficult to sustain, even if you are trying to just simply lose weight,” explains Dr. Manuel Torres, Family Medicine Physician with Baptist Health Primary Care.
