Ketogenic diet is administered for an average of 3 years.
This therapy demands total commitment on part of the patient and the concerned family. There could be minor obstacles during the treatment period, especially in the initial phase of the diet. The patient and family must be provided with psychological support and counseling by the entire team trained in Keto diet. It is very important to get full cooperation from the patient and the family for this therapy to work.
The Ketogenic Diet is implemented in three phases.
- Phase I – Pre-counseling & investigations
- Phase II – Initiating the Diet
- Phase III – Fine Tuning.
After the treatment is complete the patient may revert back to his normal diet.
