Abstract:

The objective of this study was to determine if protection from HBO2 seizures by acute, short fasting is related to the ketosis or to the mild hypoglycemia resulting from this treatment, or to both. For this purpose, blood glucose and ketone levels were manipulated in the fed and fasted rats by injection of glucose or a ketone precursor, 1,3- butanediol BD, and the latency to seizures was recorded.
