Keto Crazy Part 1

Yes, I know. It has been a while. My dad died suddenly in 2017. And caring for my 80-something year old mother with Alzheimer’s became my overwhelming responsibility. Still is. I never had the time to come back and I was always exhausted. Still am. But then I bought a new lap top and it drew me in…………..

I have to admit that I don’t understand the appeal to this “Keto” craze for weight loss and now diabetes management. The existing science for the control of seizure disorders that did not respond to medications is actually pretty convincing. But in Florida, we have access to Medical Marijuana and seizures are a legitimate indication for use. As a result, I am hearing less and less about ketogenic diets for seizures.

So, I am in the middle of doing some professional reading to solidify my response to the community physicians recommending this as the “new magic bullet”. Once I have it straight in my mind I can put it on paper. Soon!

 

Welcome back!
