Ketogenic Diet Inpatient and Illness Protocol, Paediatrics

exp date isn't null, but text field is


These guidelines have been prepared for the use of ward staff (nursing, dietetic, medical) dealing with children already established on the Ketogenic Diet (KD) who are admitted electively or due to illness.

These guidelines have been produced following discussion with consultant colleagues in paediatric epilepsy with KD experience outside this NHS trust and with the Ketogenic Diet team within Royal Hospital for Children, Glasgow. They have also been discussed within KETOPAG, a group of UK paediatricians, dietitians and epilepsy nurses experienced in the use of the KD (Evidence Level V).
