"When our son Finn was 20 months old we were offered brain surgery to control generalised seizures.  We did some research and decided that first we would like to give the ketogenic diet a try.  This turned out to be the right decision because Finn was only on the ketogenic diet for a month before we saw some incredible changes.

From almost the first day on the ketogenic diet Finn’s seizures decreased dramatically. He became far more alert, happy and engaged and we are now allowing ourselves to dream that Finn might finally have a chance at life.

You often hear that running the diet is hard, but in fact it’s been easy.  It’s the seizures that are hard, so in comparison, running the diet feels like such a pleasure.  I think I built the diet up in my head, and before we started I was almost scared of the diet, but I quickly got used to our new routine and we’re completely overjoyed with the results we’re seeing.

Finn has now been on the diet for a year and wow where has that time gone! In the last twelve months he’s not needed any emergency medication, we’ve reduced his anticonvulsant medication by a third, and there have seen no crazy 999 calls in the middle of the night!  He smiles, laughs and runs around like such a happy boy and we have keto to thank for that.

So, if you’re thinking of starting the diet, please don’t hesitate.  The ketogenic diet is a truly wonderful, potentially life-changing treatment and is something you mustn’t let pass you by without giving it a go!  Good luck!"
