Up to 30% of children with epilepsy show a poor therapeutic response to pharmacologic treatment. Ketogenic diets, including the less strict low glycemic index treatment (LGIT), may improve seizure control in pharmacoresistant epilepsy. However, little is known about the quality of life (QoL) in children on LGIT. To explore psychosocial implications of the LGIT on pediatric patients and their caregivers, we have conducted a pilot study to explore the QoL of children and adolescents on the diet.
