Define the Dietary Recommendations for epilepsy?

A 3: 1 ketogenic diet is recommended. The time taken for reversing the usual ratio of 1:3 to 3: 1 is about 4 days. How will we know if our ketogenic diet is working? Very easy, just test the urine for ketone bodies. There are a few foods to be avoided in a ketogenic diet. These are listed in Table along with those foods which may be given as desired.
