Alternatively, if simple calorie restriction is sufficient to prevent seizure activity in patients, why not decrease total caloric intake, and not bother with the high-fat KD? However, from yet another perspective, one could consider combining the KD and calorie restriction (as has been done in animal studies). In rats fed a calorie-restricted KD, Bough and colleagues (2003) demonstrated exhibited greater paired-pulse inhibition in the dentate gyrus, elevated maximal dentate activation threshold, and an absence of “spreading depression”-like events compared with ad libitum-fed controls. These results suggest that treatment with a calorie-restricted KD may produce both anticonvulsant and anti-epileptogenic effects.

Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) such as docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, C22: 6ω-3), arachidonic acid (AA, C20: 4ω-3), or eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, C20: 5ω-3) have been reported to suppress voltage-gated sodium channels and L-type calcium channels in seizure-prone structures such as the hippocampus (Vreugdenhil et al., 1996). The KD produces elevations of both AA and DHA in serum (Fraser et al., 2003; Cunnane et al., 2002) and brain (Taha et al., 2005) of patients and animals, respectively, suggesting that these substrates might exert anticonvulsant effects by inhibiting sodium and calcium channels, like many anticonvulsant drugs (Xiao et al., 1997, 1998).
