In Oslo University Hospital, department of complex epilepsy, offer ketogenic diet to treat
children with medically intractable epilepsy. From 2009 we added modified Atkins diet as a
treatment option for children up to 18 years.
We now initiate an open, prospective, randomized and controlled study with the aim to test
the efficacy of treatment with modified Atkins diet in adults with focal and generalized
epilepsy diagnoses, in order to evaluate whether this treatment should be offered to patients
on a permanent basis.
