The author concludes: "The ketogenic diet is a promising therapy for patients with myoclonic-astatic epilepsy, with over half the children showing a > 50% reduction in seizures, and seizure-freedom in 18%. In drug resistant cases of myoclonic-astatic epilepsy, the diet should be considered early in the course of this syndrome and not as a last resort".
