- June 14, 2021
A young girl suffering from polymorphic seizures found dramatic improvements in her condition when administered the Ketogenic diet by Dr. Atma Ram Bansal and Dr. Yeeshu Singh from Medanta. This diet typically contains foods with high fat and low carbohydrate levels. It involves the formation of ketones in the body, resulting from the break-down of more fat, than carbohydrates. The patient showed a significant reduction in the occurrence of epileptic fits and had to consume far fewer medicines than before. The Ketogenic diet is a significant advancement in the treatment of epilepsy at Medanta Institute of Neurosciences at Medanta – The Medicity.
