Hi everyone, I wondered if there are any of you that put your child on the ketogenic diet and what kind of results you have seen? My son was diagnosed with epilepsy almost 2 years ago and has been on several different medications, with the doses increased and they continue to not be effective. He has had about 4 grand mal seizures, the last one just about a month ago. His medication was increased and things were quiet for a while, now we're back to more seizures. Does anyone else experience this? (Sorry for so many questions!) Thank you so much, Cathy
Thanks Mom22 and Amy! I am not tech savvy at all. I thought I was adding the link. Let's keep each other informed when the third edition comes out!
Try this for Legal Rights of Children with Epilepsy in School and Child Care: http://www.epilepsy.com/sites/core/files/atoms/files/Legal%20Rights...
Your link is undefined, but googling the title works. I have often linked people to the copy on wrightslaw which is from 2011, always keen to know if a third edition comes out.
Just though I would share our story of how things turned out with our son's epilepsy and how an Hemispherectomy changed our life.
Please watch our youTube video
or just type in Josiah's Hemispherectomy in Google
Please take this anonymous survey this weekend, 10/2-10/5. As I finish my college degree, I'm researching and projecting about career possibilities for my future and the future of my family. My goal is to hear from other Moms who are also juggling work, being a parent and caring for your child with seizures. This survey is brief, completely anonymous, and I greatly appreciate your input. My young son has a seizure disorder and I'm a single parent just trying to figure this out...
i was told by an epilipsy doctor at childrens the best results is flonase its a steriod and doesnt trigger seizers
hey have people heard about this?? amazing!!http://www.webmd.com/news/breaking-news/marijuana-on-main-street/me...
Rachel, my gs gets a sinus infection every time we try anything like Sudafed....it's not an allergy med but just dries mucus, allowing a buildup of dry yuck in the upper sinus cavities that doesn't drain, but that irritates worse than the dribbling nose draining the excess. We've had success with a low dose of Zyrtec (1/2 a child's pill once a day) and Nasonex ( 1 squirt each nostril once a day, easy sniff - not pulling it into the upper sinus cavities). He's cleared up so he only needs the regemine every few days instead of daily, with no infections.
Ask your doc about the strength of the allergy meds, and cut them back to just where they work without causing other issues....sometimes "less is more". Just IMHO from what I've been thru.
