It will be interesting to see how the public comments on this. I am not a reader of this news website usually!

I was actually surprised at the quality of the comments, I expected much, much less.

Ketogenic diets have been used for decades to treat epileptic seizures. The brain runs very well on ketones.

That girl is a bit creepy, but I'm sure there's people in the Paleo community that consume more fat than her willingly. I just pray that her parents aren't taking her out to McDonalds just for the fat. I don't think there's too much fast food out there that is high in PUFAs that isn't also high in carbs (double whammy!) and made with very questionable ingredients.

She suffers from GLUT1 (glucose transporter 1) deficiency which means the cells that rely on this transporter for glucose absorption cannot access glucose from the circulation.

Whilst this is not a problem for say muscle cells which use GLUT4, its a huge problem for brain cells which use GLUT1.

Therefore she must use an alternative energy substrate to power her brain cells - hence the high fat diet.

Be very careful. The Daily Mail is a right wing rag. If you even touch it, it turns you into a racist.
