No more Ketogenic diet!

Well, we tried the diet for two months, and no improvements with seizures. His behavior has been quite a bit better, but his seizures are worse. Before the diet, he was having one to two big seizures a day. Now, he can go a few days without a seizure and then has an explosion of seizures. Most of the time it's about 7-9 big seizures in a day, but a few days ago, he had 19 in one day. Time for a change. Conner's neurologist said that the ketogenic diet doesn't seem to be helping, so we are in the process of weaning him off of it. I've been researching the GARD diet, and I think that's our next step!

Conner started the ketogenic diet...again!

After about two and a half weeks in the hospital, Conner is now home. We started him on the ketogenic diet to try to help control his seizures. This is the second time. The first time he was only 1 1/2 years old. Hopefully, this time it will help!
