FAQ:- How long more does Nate need to be on the Ketogenic Diet?


Come September 2008, Nathanael would have been on this special Ketogenic diet for 2 years. We can’t wait for the diet to come to an end, however we can’t just take him off the diet suddenly it will take 6 months to wean him off the high fat diet that he consumes everyday fo the past 22 months.

By Sept 20 2008 he would have eaten 5,110 ketogenic meals. So as for now….we hope that it is only 630 more meals to go.

We went to see Prof Ong this week and she has scheduled Nathanael for another followup EEG. The results of this EEG would help determine if Nathanael is really ready to get off the diet. So the results of the EEG is very crucial. Prof Ong said if the reading is good….it would take us half a year before we can really migrate him back to the normal food. HOWEVER—–if the results are not too good…we will have to keep him on it for another year!

So please please pray along ya. We’re due for the EEG test 1st week of August.
