My six-year-old daughter has been on the ketogenic diet for three and half years now for uncontrolled epilepsy. In that time I weaned her off of three anti-convulsants and six months after the last wean she became seizure-free. She has now been seizure-free for 2 years and 3 months. Also in that time as well as being on the keto diet, she has been failsafe and dairy free. I re-introduced dairy into her diet about three months ago and she is tolerating it really well. She is now off the keto diet but remains failsafe. I'm certain without the ketogenic diet in conjunction with the failsafe diet my daughter would still be having seizures. - by email, NSW
