What is the ketogenic diet?

The ketogenic diet is a medically supervised low-carb diet, high in fat with enough protein for growth. The diet produces ketones in the liver which help reduce seizure activity making it an extremely effective treatment in the management of drug-resistant epilepsy and GLUT1 deficiency syndrome.
