Abstract

OBJECTIVE. We evaluated the efficacy and long-term outcome of the ketogenic diet in patients with intractable childhood epilepsy as a result of focal malformation of cortical development.
METHODS. A retrospective analysis evaluated seizure outcomes of 47 patients who had intractable epilepsy from (and) surgically remediable focal malformation of cortical development and were first treated with the classic ketogenic diet, involving the 4:1 lipid/nonlipid ratio. The long-term prognosis of 21 patients, who became seizure-free 3 months after the ketogenic diet, was followed up with that of 22 patients who eventually underwent epilepsy surgery.
RESULTS. Three months after diet initiation, 29 (61.7%) patients showed a reduction in seizure frequency of >50%, including 21 (44.7%) who became seizure-free. Of the 21 patients with complete seizure control at 3 months, 16 (76.2%) successfully completed the diet for 2 years without relapse, and 10 (47.6%) have remained seizure-free after cessation of the diet (mean follow-up for 3 years and 10 months), including 1 patient who remained seizure-free with additional medication after a relapse. Of the 22 patients who underwent epilepsy surgery, a seizure-free outcome was obtained for 13 (59.1%).
CONCLUSIONS. The ketogenic diet should be considered to be an additional option even in patients with focal malformation of cortical development, and long-term seizure-free outcome can be expected for patients who become seizure-free 3 months after the diet.

Moisturizers:
☻Cocoa butter – Various manufacturers prepare this in a hard, stick-form.

only ingredient. This is a moisturizer that is especially good for sensitive skin.

Ingredient: Coconut oil is extracted from the dried inner flesh of coconuts. It is used as an ingredient in foods,
cosmetics and moisturizers and is a pure moisturizer on its own for skin and lips. It may also be used as a fat
source on the ketogenic diet as it contains medium chain triglycerides which are helpful in producing ketones.

Κετογόνος Δίαιτα

Ερευνητές του Johns Hopkins αναφέρουν ότι η πλούσια σε λίπη και χαμηλής περιεκτικότητας σε υδατάνθρακες κετογόνος διατροφή δεν φαίνεται να έχει μακροχρόνιες ανεπιθύμητες επιδράσεις στην υγεία.
Η κετογόνος διατροφή χρησιμοποιείται για την αντιμετώπιση των βρεφικών σπασμών καθώς και σε παιδιά με επιληπτικές κρίσεις που δεν μπορούν να ελεγχθούν με φάρμακα, καθώς θεωρείται ότι μπορεί να πυροδοτήσει κάποιες βιοχημικές μεταβολές στα κυκλώματα του εγκεφάλου που προκαλούν τις κρίσεις.
«Παρά τις παροδικές ανεπιθύμητες ενέργειες του τύπου αυτού διατροφής, είχαμε πάντα την υποψία ότι η κετογόνος δίαιτα είναι ασφαλής μακροχρόνια και τώρα διαθέτουμε αποδείξεις ότι όντως είναι έτσι», δήλωσε ο κύριος ερευνητής της μελέτης Dr. Eric Kossoff.
Ο Kossoff και οι συνάδελφοί του εξέτασαν 101 ασθενείς ηλικίας 2-26 ετών που ακολουθούσαν κετογόνο διατροφή για τουλάχιστον 16 μήνες και έως για οκτώ έτη μεταξύ των ετών 1993 και 2008. Μετά την ένταξή τους στη μελέτη, οι συμμετέχοντες συνέχισαν την ίδια διατροφή για οκτώ μήνες έως 14 έτη.
Τα ευρήματα της μελέτης, που δημοσιεύθηκε στο περιοδικό Epilepsia, έδειξαν ότι σχεδόν 80% των συμμετεχόντων είτε δεν παρουσίαζαν καθόλου επιληπτικές κρίσεις είτε οι κρίσεις τους είχαν μειωθεί κατά το ήμισυ.
