Diet for Epilepsy Patients

The Ketogenic diet is good for patients suffering from epilepsy. Ketogenic diet is a special diet which contains high fat and low carbohydrate in it. This diet helps to control seizures in some people with epilepsy. This diet may not be suitable for every patient, but this diet is considered usually when two or more suitable medications have been tried and not worked.
