Look through it carefully. It requires Dr. supervision and then extremely precise measurements to even work. DId you notice that he said when he makes scrambled eggs he has to scrape all the egg from the mixing bowl with a spatula? WIthout that precision it doesn't work.
The diet is only used a few years in most cases. The Atkins diet did the same thing but wasn't as extreme. Ketosis and ketoacidosis are not the same thing. The ketosis is what stops the seizures though they don't know why.
I know this but sadly a lot of people try to figure it out on their own and why I said its best to do it under a doctors care. Mostly my hubby has been researching this for years and babbles at me about it . I rejected it 5 or so years ago when he brought it up to me because i felt it wasnt safe doctors care or not. I also know good and well there is NO way I could get my boys to eat that way.
If the diet is to extreme it can cause ketoacidosis tho that isnt what I was saying. Just in general we try to prevent ketones in Ri so it in general give me a hang up in trying to get them to spill ketones weather or not its the same thing. It makes my heart race to hear there are ketones there period.
