a must read...

I have finished reading this book.  It was very good.

 It is full of parent perspectives and real advice from those on the front lines of diet therapy.  I wish I had read this before we started.

I think the best part was when they interviewed THE keto doctor, Dr. Eric Kossoff from Johns Hopkins hospital.  He said, "If a child is seizure-free, the odds are 80% that he/she will stay seizure-free off the diet.  A normal MRI, EEG, and not having tuberous sclerosis complex increase those odds."  (pg. 254) That means we have higher than 80% chance that we will never, ever again see a seizure.  Ever.  (!!!!!!)

If you are about to start this diet, head over to amazon and order a copy - it is worth it!
