ABOUT ME

Hi, there! I am registered dietitian and certified diabetes care and education specialist. I have extensive experience working in the field of endocrinology and have special interests in type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). While diabetes and insulin resistance are my "bread and butter," I work with a variety of other conditions as well. Whether you are trying to figure out what foods to eat to preserve your kidney function, trying to reverse the progression of fatty liver, trying to improve your cholesterol values, or simply trying to learn more about nutrition and improve your relationship with food, I am here to help!

I like to conduct nutrition therapy using a weight neutral approach, however; I can be flexible with my approach depending your individual goals and health conditions.
We will spend the first session getting to know each other. We will review your goals, medical history, any recent lab work, lifestyle factors, and typical eating patterns. I love reviewing lab work, so please feel free to upload a copy of your labs to the portal for me to review prior to/during your appointment.
My hobby is enjoying the simple things in life. I love listening to music and podcasts, enjoying a cup of coffee on my porch (when weather permits), drinking a glass of wine with my best friend, eating dinner with my parents on Sundays, and snuggling with my cats at the end of each day.

ABOUT ME

Hi there! I'm Kelly, a registered dietitian with over ten years experience promoting wellness and treating chronic conditions, especially diabetes and prediabetes. When I'm not helping people fuel their bodies right, you'll catch me knee deep in homesteading adventures - getting dirty in the garden, tending to my animal crew, and finding novel ways to live off the land.

As a real food focused dietitian, my purpose is to guide individuals on the path to wellness by harnessing the incredible potential of nature's bounty, fostering self-sufficiency, and reducing reliance on the modern medical system. My approach to care is patient-centered and collaborative -- it's all about you! I’m here to support your wellness journey through personalized and tailored conversations and strategies that resonate with your unique needs, values, and goals.
In our first session, I'll be learning a lot about you! I'll be asking about your health, nutrition, lifestyle, and goals to complete a thorough nutrition assessment and lay the foundation for your personalized care. As a team, we'll explore your goals and develop practical, realistic strategies to achieve them. I'll provide some initial nutrition education to empower you with the information you need to make informed choices and suggestions for first steps you can start implementing right away. By the end of the session, you'll have a clear understanding of your goals, personalized strategies to achieve them, and motivation to embark on your health journey.
Homesteading, gardening, cooking, preserving, animals. PC video games are my favorite entertainment and guilty pleasure!

She then took her skills to a pediatric hospital where she worked with the tiniest of patients with some of the most precarious nutrition concerns. She is an expert in pediatric nutrition and passionate about maternal, infant, child and adolescent health.

Kim is a huge proponent of individualized nutrition care and realistic, “non-diet” approaches to meet nutrition goals.

Whether your goal is weight loss, weight gain, improved health or quality of life, Kim will work to create a sustainable plan that works for you. As a busy mom herself, Kim understands the complexities of eating well and balancing all that life throws at us on a day-to-day basis.
You can expect a relaxed, supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere. The goal for a first session is to get to know you. Kim will ask about your lifestyle, nutrition history, current eating patterns, medical history and most importantly, what you hope to achieve from a health and nutrition perspective.

Understanding the Impact of Nutrition on Kidney Function

The link between nutrition and kidney health is undeniable. The foods we consume play a significant role in supporting or potentially harming our kidneys. For individuals with chronic kidney disease (CKD), understanding the impact of nutrition on kidney function is crucial for managing their condition effectively. Diet can directly affect kidney disease progression. Consuming high amounts of certain nutrients like sodium, phosphorus, and potassium can put additional strain on the kidneys, leading to further damage. On the other hand, a well-balanced diet that is tailored to support kidney function can help slow down the progression of the disease and reduce the risk of complications. Key nutrients to consider for kidney health include protein, phosphorus, potassium, and sodium. Monitoring the intake of these nutrients is essential in managing kidney disease and preventing further deterioration of kidney function.

Practical Dietary Tips for Managing Kidney Disease

The importance of a customized diet plan cannot be overstated for individuals with kidney disease. A one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition simply does not work in this scenario. A kidney disease nutritionist plays a crucial role in developing a customized diet plan that takes into account the individual's specific condition, including their stage of kidney disease, other health conditions, and nutritional needs.

Limit High-Sodium and High-Potassium Foods

Foods to limit or avoid for kidney health include high-sodium processed foods, high-phosphorus foods such as dairy products and certain meats, and high-potassium foods like bananas and potatoes. These foods can contribute to imbalances in the body and worsen kidney function.

Eat Fruits and Vegetables and Lean Protein

On the other hand, a kidney-friendly diet should include nutritious foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables (with careful attention to their potassium content), lean protein sources, whole grains, and healthy fats. It's important to work closely with a kidney disease nutritionist to ensure that the diet is both nourishing and supportive of kidney health.

The Benefits of Seeing a Kidney Disease Nutritionist

A nutritionist specializing in renal nutrition can provide invaluable support and guidance in navigating the complex dietary considerations associated with kidney disease.

Meal Planning and Dietary Changes

A nutritionist can help with meal planning and dietary adjustments, ensuring that the individual's nutritional needs are met while also managing their kidney disease. They can offer practical strategies for reducing the intake of harmful nutrients and increasing the consumption of kidney-friendly foods.

Provider Collaboration

Collaborating with healthcare professionals for comprehensive care is essential for individuals with kidney disease. A kidney disease nutritionist can work in tandem with nephrologists, nurses, and other healthcare providers to ensure that the patient receives holistic care that addresses all aspects of their health, including nutrition.

In conclusion, the role of a kidney disease nutritionist is pivotal in managing diet and health for individuals with kidney disease. By understanding the impact of nutrition on kidney function, implementing practical dietary tips, and seeking expert insights, individuals can take proactive steps towards optimizing their health and well-being in the face of chronic kidney disease
