Diwali teaches us the importance of Diyas. The way one diya can lighten up hundreds of diyas similarly our centre has endeavoured to spread the light by training other keto centres all over ASIA through workshops spread over the last ten years. Since two years the Asian Institute of Ketogenic Diet (AIKD) started an online course to give quality training to dieticians and neurologists.
“Happiness never decreases by being shared”- Buddha
So this Diwali we will give information of trained Keto centres with AIKD certified keto dieticians and Neurologists.
Why does KD needs training?
Because unlike many other diets you cannot learn it from book as:-
- It has specific indications and contra-indications
- Can have serious side-effects
- It is highly individualized
- Requires expert supervision by trained dieticians and doctors
- Requires patient and family counselling
- Patients completely rely on the experts
- Drop of ketones is akin to missing acute AED withdrawal and can lead to serial seizures or even status epilepticus
Dr. Nathan is the pioneer of Ketogenic diet in India and Asia. He has set up the AIKD to give authentic and extensive ketogenic diet training in Mumbai, India. In past, he has held many KD workshop in India and world-wide and recently we instituted AIKD online course.
