The Ketogenic Diet and Autism Spectrum Disorders: Part 2 of 2

In this second part of her presentation on the ketogenic diet’s effect on children with autism, Certified Clinical Nutritionist (CCN) Kelly Barnhill covers specific foods and supplements which may be used for a ketogenic diet, while maintaining the importance of including a medical professional in the process of changing a child’s diet, due to the individualized nature of the diet and the potential for side effects when beginning a new diet.

Barnhill discusses sources of keto-friendly protein and carbs, and also the possibility of modifying the ketogenic diet (such as eating gluten-free, casein-free on top of eating a keto diet). It is possible to be gluten-free and casein-free with a ketogenic diet, but may require additional clinical oversight

Barnhill additionally covers what the process of beginning a ketogenic diet with a clinician will look like, including labs and tests, and what the purpose of those diagnostic tests are. A clinician will then recommend several diet options once they have an idea of the child’s dietary needs, and over time, adherence to a keto diet does become easier.
