About Katie

Katie Blumhorst RDN, LD

I’m a Renal Dietitian and your expert on kidney nutrition. I’m passionate about helping people with kidney disease make food choices that they will love to help improve kidney function. I help those with chronic kidney disease and those that receive dialysis treatments. I have over 10 years experience counseling people with kidney disease and I feel that it is possible to improve lives not with pills, but with food!
