Susan Wood RD

Matthew's Friends

Susan Wood has worked as a UK registered dietitian for 36 years predominantly in the NHS, treating a wide range of paediatric and adult conditions.

In 2008, the referral of one young adult for the dietary management of drug resistant epilepsy sparked her interest in ketogenic diet therapy (KDT) and since then she has been pioneering the development of adult treatment protocols in the UK and raising the awareness of dietitians and adult neurologists to the potential that KDT can offer to adults.

In 2009 she started to work alongside the Matthews Friends Charity, offering support to adults and their neurology teams seeking treatment and in 2011 she joined the newly formed clinical team at the Matthews Friends Centre for Ketogenic Dietary Therapies. She continues to lead on the treatment of adults with complex epilepsy and the exploration of novel clinical applications for KDT.
