Fatigue set in.
We decided to rest awhile.
Caspian took 10 weeks to wean from about 12 grams of carbohydrates a day up to 60 grams ( but I fudged from 45 grams) and then to wean down off the fat. It was more of a cliff dive at the end. He is a happy little fellow now with his face full of carbs.
His seizures stayed low for a while but they are more frequent visitors now.
It was just over 2 years on both diets. Caspian definitely benefited for being on the diets. Especially the modified atkins. His language is at times fabulous and a little bit complex. He got to say goodbye to a drug that did not agree with him. His gut and asthma improved quite a bit which was a fabulous bonus ( best bit). He had a decrease in seizures. Would I recommend trialling the MAD? yes, yes and yes.
Guess what ? he still loves his fat.
I have moved my thoughts over to my new blog Joyful purpose, a significantly less specific blog.
