Darren, I actually have worked with children on the diet, when the neuro clinic I worked in at the time was doing a study. That diet is murder to follow, and we had 3 year-old children showing up with acne and really high cholesterol levels - like in the 400's. You're right, it can be very dangerous.

Hi, I am new here yet have 3 years experience with the Ketogenic diet. If you monitor blood work on a regular basis and get good source of nutrients to supplement diet it can be quite amazing. Our daughter was put on the diet in 11/05 and it was like lifting a veil once she was in "ketosis". Her true personality emerged and we went from 100 seizures a day to just 10. Yes still daily seizures even with meds, yet a huge decrease in medication and a much happier child is what we saw from the diet. We just came off it this fall of 2009.
For kids with G-tubes for feeding; it is an amazing seizure tool that is administered easily. We went through our local children's hospital and the special Keto diet program. Our experience has been positive over all.
