Evaluation of the Seizure Control and the Tolerability of Ketogenic Diet in Chinese Children with Structural Drug-resistant Epilepsy

Seizure.

KD is an effective and safe treatment for Chinese children with DRE due to structural etiology. Better efficacy of seizure control was observed in patients with a history of neonatal brain injury. Patients with DRE secondary to HIE may be particularly responsive to the KD therapy, and so KD should be considered earlier in those patients.
