Nico 8, has been on the 4:1 keto diet since September 2011. He was diagnosed that year with GLUT-1DS. His symptoms included daily seizures, difficulty walking, talking, and learning.
On day 2 of the diet the seizures stopped. On day 3 no more wheelchair! In a matter of weeks, his speech became much clearer and he began to read and write. His teachers were amazed!
Nico’s smile is contagious! He loves to make me laugh! He likes to help me make his meals and he feels so proud of his new abilities. He knows the diet is what gave them back.
Last year he competed in cross country running, a feat I could only dream of. He ran in every race, finishing last, but finishing proud!!!
