I mentioned the high protein/exogenous ketone approach to Glycogen Storage Disease IIIa in a recent post. It's very nice that an effective treatment can actually be achieved through a Modified Atkins Diet (MAD at <10g of carbs per day) involving food, w/o faking ketosis though those exogenous synthetic ketones.
Robert gave me the heads up on the latest paper on GSD IIIa using MAD, available as a free text through Pubmed. It's rather good as, again, it shows that there are medics out there who think matters through and occasionally come to correct conclusions. I love the clinical details of compliance/non compliance too. And that the early hypoglycaemia, treated with corn starch (bleugh), was asymptomatic under ketosis.
He also sent me the full text of Veech's
The Determination of the Redox States and Phosphorylation Potential in Living Tissues and Their Relationship to Metabolic Control of Disease Phenotypes
which is a fascinating personal insight in to what it was like to work in Hans Krebs' lab, combined with the sort of hard core math which implies rather more understanding of biochemistry than simply adding MitoSOX red to some cells and looking for colour changes to show oxidative stress. That's some complex reading to work through when clinical and home life combine to give me a chance!
