Ketogenic Diets: Treatments for Epilepsy and Other Disorders Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sometimes referred to as a miracle diet, the ketogenic diet has helped doctors treat difficult-to-control epileptic seizures in thousands of children. Coauthored by four respected experts from Johns Hopkins, Ketogenic Diets continues to be the definitive guide for parents, physicians, and dieticians wanting to implement this strict diet. Anyone who is placed on the Ketogenic Diet will be told, essentially prescribed by their doctor to get this book.

This Fifth Edition has been extensively updated to reflect current advances in understanding how the diet works, how it should be used, and the future role of the diet as a treatment. Six new chapters address how to integrate the diet into all cultures, religions, and taste preferences; new information on modified and less restrictive versions of the diet, and the Modified Atkins Diet for Epilepsy are included. The book also covers exciting new research that shows the diet may work for people with other neurological illnesses.

This best-seller also includes sample meal plans, a food database, how to calculate foods, and much more.

Praise for the Fourth Edition:

While this is a profoundly rigorous diet, with potentially serious side effects, Freeman, Kossoff, et al. discuss every facet of the process with clarity and professionally restrained optimism. Under proper guidance and with real dedication, this diet may be the path to recovery for children with difficult-to-control seizures.-Kirkus Reports

A 'must'...Very highly recommended as a top alternative to medication for kids with epilepsy. --The Midwest Book Review

This book is easy to read... Anecdotes from families that have used the ketogenic diet are interspersed throughout the chapters and make the...text more interesting, and bring the diet to life... This book is highly recommended for pediatric consumer health libraries. --CAPHIS Consumer Connections

If we had had the information in this book fifteen months earlier, a vast majority of Charlie's $100,000 of medical, surgical, and drug treatment would not have been necessary, a vast majority of Charlie's seizures would not have occurred. — From the Foreword by Jim Abrahams, Director, The Charlie Foundation to Help Cure Pediatric Epilepsy

Book News Annotation:

Since The Epilepsy Diet Treatment: An Introduction to the Ketogenic Diet (1994) introduced this high fat, low carbohydrate diet, it has become a standard medical treatment for children with intractable seizures. Physicians and a dietitian at the Johns Hopkins University Hospital Pediatric Epilepsy Center present an overview of the traditional and modified ketogenic diets. The reference includes a foreword by the director of The Charlie Foundation to Help Cure Pediatric Epilepsy, answers to frequently asked questions, tips for regaining lost seizure control, research findings, sample meal plans, and resources. Expanding use of the diet for conditions in adults and pediatric patients is also discussed. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
