Noah's Story

Noah is a happy loving 6 1/2 yr old boy. He has a genetic form of epilepsy known as GEFS+ (Generalized Epilepsy Febrile Seizures Plus). His first seizure occured at 6 months. Two weeks later another seizure. He suffered weekly tonic clonic seizures on average and more often when ill. We guestimate he has survived around 300 seizures. He failed 4 anti-epileptic drugs and suffered through many serious side effects during those drug times. Noah's longest seizure lasted 3 hours. He has been hospitalized too many times to count, placed in the ICU many many times and often suffocates on his saliva during seizures. We have come extremely close to losing our little guy many times. Noah began the Keto Diet on 1/9/07. Under excellent supervision, we started this Keto Journey. We've had a few adjustments due to growth but he is currently at a 4:1 ratio w/1250 calories divided between 5 meals per day. He loves his diet! We love his diet! Although not seizure free, we have better than 90% control. Noah is alive, happy and living each day.
