Title:
Monitoring of ketogenic diet for carnitine metabolites by subcutaneous microdialysis. 
Abstract:
The ketogenic diet (KD) provides ketones from the degradation of free fatty acids for energy metabolism. It is a therapeutic option for pharmacoresistant epilepsies. Carnitine is the carrier molecule that transports fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane for degradation into ketones. The integrity of this transport system is a prerequisite for an adequate ketogenic response. For monitoring of tissue metabolism with KD, we used the sampling method of s.c. microdialysis (MD), which permits...    »
