About us

The ketogenic diet is recognized as the first line of treatment approved for the treatment of some diseases.

Who are we?

A limited number of centers are currently using the ketogenic regimen to treat patients with the aforementioned diseases, whose pediatric neuroscience center, Mofid Hospital, has been the main focus of the country for the past 30 years.

What can we do?

Given that this diet lasts an average of 2 to 3 years and considering the specific features of this type of diet that can have side effects such as increased blood lipids, gastrointestinal disorders, kidney problems, etc. Follow-up, monitoring of patients is important.

What is our purpose?

Therefore, by registering patients in the system and recording their information, follow-up can be done by neuroscientists and nutritionists. This way, in addition to controlling patients and observing the course of the disease, it can also prevent the side effects of this diet.


About ketogenic

What are the treatments for ketogenic diseases?

The ketogenic diet has been recognized as the first line of treatment approved for the treatment of certain diseases such as pyruvate dehydrogenase deficiency (PDHD) and GLUT-1 deficiency. It can also often be a reliable treatment for diseases such as neonatal spasm, Dravet's syndrome, Doose syndrome, lactic acidosis and cerebral dysgenesis, SSADH deficiency, and other types of refractory epilepsy and phospho-fructokinase deficiency.


What is the treatment for this disease?

A limited number of centers are currently using the ketogenic regimen to treat patients with the aforementioned diseases, whose pediatric neurological research center has been the main polarized hospital for the past 30 years nationwide. Given that this diet lasts an average of 2 to 3 years and considering the specific features of this type of diet that can cause complications such as hyperlipidemia, gastrointestinal disorders, kidney problems, etc. Follow up, monitoring patients is important.


What is our duty?

Therefore, by registering patients in the system and recording their information, follow-up can be done by neuroscientists and nutritionists. This way, in addition to controlling patients and observing the course of the disease, it can also prevent the side effects of this diet. On the ketogenic diet registration site, patients nominated and approved by neuroscientists enter the site through the guide. First the biography, then the examination and then all the paraclinical examinations of the tests required to supplement the patient's diet information are made available on the site.
