Latest Research findings on Progesterone Therapy for Catamenial Seizures & Documenting of Seizure Trends in Women w/ Catamenial Seizures

My Sisters' Homeopathic MD diagnosed my Sis w/ Catamenial Seizures (after 50 yrs of Seizures & DR Opinions) about 5 yrs ago. She is on the Modified Atkins Diet (also used for Epilepsy) for her Diabetes. Progesterone was added & she has been seizure free since. But, keep in mind, what works for one may not work (or be advised by your DR) for you. My Daughter has Catamenial Seizures, also. Lyrica is controlling her seizures, for now.
