"Hello, I am Cheryl Fisher and I have been a dietitian since 2004 specialising in paediatrics.

I am a Daisy Garland Ketogenic Dietitian at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh. Over the years my work has covered many areas including acute inpatients, home enteral tube feeding and diabetes.

I have a specialist interest in neurology and have found the ketogenic diet an extremely rewarding area to work in, as I am able to help, support, educate and influence very positive outcomes for children with drug-resistant epilepsy and their families.

Thanks to Daisy Garland funding I have had the opportunity to develop and extend our ketogenic service, thereby supporting more families across Lothian and South East Scotland. I am thrilled by this new challenge to raise the profile of such an important diet therapy.”
