Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Retrospective chart review of 15 patients with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) who initiated the low glycemic index treatment (LGIT) for epilepsy management at Massachusetts General Hospital over a five-year period. Prior to dietary therapy, this cohort (average age: 8.5 years) had tried an average of 5.8 anti-epileptic drugs with incomplete seizure control. At 6 months on the LGIT, 7/15 (47%) patients experienced >50% reduction in seizure frequency.
