For more than 50 years I have been diagnosed with epilepic seizures. In 1996 I tried the Ketogenic Diet, which controlled my seizutres better than 20 different medications but still had periodically. In 2004 I found the chemical -gluten- was causing my seizures, after having a pasta dinner and being away from glutenous foods (wheat, barley or rye), I was very sensative to gluten so I have many seizures after my dinner. in 2009 I found the enzyme DPP-IV control most glutenous food except for regular pasta, mixed wheat oils, or foods covered by oil and gelatin capsules. And possibly a drastic amount eaten at once. Since 2010 I have had no seizures and now drive. If you try to avoid gluten by avoiding wheat, barley or rye, food addatives like food starch, malodextrin, and even gelatin capsules must be avoided.View Thread
