I realized there was a lack of dietitians who specialized in non-dialysis kidney disease.
I’ve been a dietitian since 2009. I landed a job as a dietitian at a dialysis center in 2014 and I’ve been in the renal world ever since. When I began working with those on dialysis, I quickly realized how under-utilized medical nutrition therapy is in the earlier stages of chronic kidney disease. Many of my patients had never met with a dietitian prior to ending up on dialysis! This was shocking to me as I knew proper nutrition could help stop the progression of kidney disease and potentially help people avoid ever ending up on dialysis.
I realized that there was a lack of dietitians who specialize in non-dialysis kidney disease. I decided to take action by starting my own private practice. With expanded telehealth, I was able to extend my reach to those all over the United States. My goal is to spread the word that nutrition is a powerful and effective way to prevent and manage kidney disease and it can be attainable no matter what your lifestyle.
