Clinical management of ketogenic diet therapies in adults with epilepsy

Takeaway

  • Both similarities and differences exist in recommendations for adult and pediatric clinical management of ketogenic diet therapies (KDTs) and recommendations from experts are necessary to achieve optimal patient care.

Why this matters ?

    KDTs have been shown to be effective in children with seizures and epilepsy syndromes and have been increasingly used for adult epilepsy management. However, there is currently little information to guide patient care for adults using KDTs.
