Our expert says:
I think it is vital that you obtain a second opinion and I would suggest that you consult a neurologist this time around. As far as I know, temporal epilepsy is not influenced by diet, except that in uncontrolled young epileptics a high-fat diet is sometimes used to control the seizures if the child does not react to medication. The type of diet he has prescribed would probably help for the asthma, but go for that 2nd opinion because if the dr is actually treating attention deficit disorder, then the theory about sugar making the symptoms worse only applies in a very small number of children and not to the majority. You can always consult a clinical dietitian (phone (012) 998-5650 (mornings) and get him/her to help you with the child's diet.
Hope that this problem gets sorted out soon.
