One of this week’s features is on dietary therapy for epilepsy. How many of you have diet experts as part of your epilepsy treatment team? Do you know who should be part of your team and what they do?
A dietary therapy for epilepsy is a medical treatment and should be followed by health care professionals, just like any other treatment.
Remember, you and your family or loved ones should always be at the center of your care team. At times your team will involve doctors or nurses at a hospital or clinic. Other times you need different types of professionals that may be based at a center or in your community. For diet treatments, remember these are therapies that need monitoring over time to make sure they are working and that your body is responding well. Having a well-rounded Diet Treatment Team will help you accomplish this!
Have a safe week!
