Studies Have Shown That A Diet Rich In Triglycerides Could Help To Control Epilepsy In Children
Ketogenic diets can control epilepsy
A ketogenic eating plan means eating foods that are high in fat and low in carbohydrates. These types of diets are also often referred to as a long-chain triglyceride diet. While following the diet plan, patients will often consume up to four grams of fat for every one gram of carbohydrate that they eat. However, this type of diet is not suggested for adults and this diet plan shouldn't be adopted without medical consent and supervision.
Sources of fat that are consumed as part of a ketogenic diet include various types of oils such as virgin coconut oil, canola oil, whipping cream and other high fat foods.
Researchers state that implementing a ketogenic eating plan is an often under used treatment for patients with epilepsy, especially in children with intractable epilepsy. One study showed that a 70% ketogenic diet was enough to help control seizures.
This type of diet plan has been proven to be a successful treatment in almost half of the children that have been prescribed it and several clinical trials have shown positive results when this type of eating plan was implemented.
In addition, numerous studies have demonstrated that ketogenic diets could be beneficial to patients with neurodegenerative diseases as ketones give the body another form of energy to burn. This can be effective because in many neurodegenerative diseases the mitochondria cells that help to produce energy are often affected; providing the body with another means of fuel can help lessen or slow down the symptoms of disease.
