CAUTION: the information below suggests that the ketogenic diet may show greater efficacy (effectiveness) without medications.

This is a must watch newsbrief on one family’s recovery for their son. Initially they used the ketogenic diet and medications simultaneously without gaining results. Once they stopped the medications, but remained on the ketogenic diet, the seizures ended.
An extremely important takeaway from this story is how the parents monitored the child’s increase in seizure activity, while on the diet. They noticed that the seizure activity increased after the administering of medications.
