ism in the brain. Seizures decreased, but the benefit was erased when they knocked out the KATP channelstrong evidence that a BAD-KATP pathway conferred resistance to epileptic seizures.

"Diet sounds like this wholesome way to treat seizures, but it's very hard. I mean, diets in general are hard, and this diet is really hard," said Yellen, whose wife's Center for Dietary Therapy in Epilepsy hosts a candy-free Halloween party for its many patients on the ketogenic diet.
