Ketogenic Diet, Does Anyone Follow This Treatment For Seizures, Or Even Just Try Low Glycemic Diets For Seizure Control?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I'm looking for advice on the ketogenic diet or low glycemic diets. Has any tried these and had it help seizure control? Too much sugar is a trigger for me, so I was wondering if it might help to be more strict with diet.

Has Anyone Ever Been Told That Their Diet Can Be Related To Seizures?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Just curious.

It's one of those things...I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT have a glass of red wine. But, I can have a mixed drink with no problems. Red wine is a for sure trigger.

I think I have a pattern to my tonic clonic nocturnal seizures, which is one seizure every 7 to 10 days. I'm caught in this dilemna of needing to deduce a pattern to prepare for the seizure or seizures, or continue to convince myself to stay seizure free. Does that make sense? It's like the mind - literally - is that powerful.

There is no food, drink, activity, etc ... that triggers these seizures (as far as I can tell). Also, I continue to take my medications on schedule and have had… read more
