I am looking for information on the success others with Tonic Clonic seizures have had with a very modified Ketogenic Diet like the Low Gycemic Index diet I am familiar with the Ketogenic Diet but it's too restrictive and therefore unsustainable for my teenage son I recently read some are having success with the Low Glycemic Diet Anyone???

From what I have read about other peoples success, 'alternatives' ie:Diets: "What works for one may not work for another". All treatments, in my opinion, for any seizure activity, is Trial & Error' & should be discussed w/ a Neuro & or/ Nutritionist.There are several Diets that you may want to learn about. Please visit epilepsytalk.com (No need to Join to read articles.) Use her Search Tool 'diets' to read about them.

I wish you & your son Success on Any Treatment you opt for. Will you keep us posted?

Hugs! Love Candi

Our daughter had a lot of success with the low tyramine headache diet. It worked about 95% of time. Her neurologist did put her on a small dose of antiseizure meds, which so far has kept her seizure free.
