Keto diet for epilepsy: push to make service more available for Kiwis who drugs can't help

Some do the keto diet to lose weight, others in the hope of controlling epilepsy.

More traditional methods of drugs or surgery don't stop everyone's seizures, so a Waikato advocate is calling for a third option: the high-fat, low-carb keto regime.

About 500 people signed Epilepsy Waikato Charitable Trust's petition, and the Health Select Committee has asked why the diet isn't more widely available to Kiwis with the neurological condition.

It is known now (we hope!) with a big thanks to the Charlie Foundation formed in 1994 to bring back knowledge of keto epilepsy treatment after it had lain mostly forgotten ever since epilepsy drugs were invented. Great news for those whose illness doesn't respond to medication or who would like an alternative.
