The transition of adolescents with refractory epilepsy to the care of adult neurologists can be challenging. For those patients with epilepsy due to mitochondrial disorders, Lafora disease, Unverricht-Lundborg disease, and GLUT1 deficiency syndrome, a successful transition can be even more problematic for both caregivers and neurologists. Many of these patients require dietary treatments (ketogenic and modified Atkins diets) for long-term management of their epilepsy. For these patients, coordinating transfer of their dietary management is necessary.
