Aisling Whelan MS, RDN, CDN
Aisling’s passion for kidney nutrition started when she learned that most of her patients at a dialysis center never met with a dietitian before starting dialysis. She was inspired to start her own private nutrition practice specializing in nutrition therapy for pre-dialysis kidney disease patients.
Aisling helps people reclaim their health and improve their quality of life through a whole-person, whole-food approach. She helps people with kidney disease slow down their progression to kidney failure, and people already on dialysis to improve their health and reduce their risk for complications.
Favorite kidney-friendly cooking tip:
Chia seeds are a great source of fiber and healthy fat, and they are naturally low in potassium, sodium and phosphorus. For a nutrient boost, add 1 tablespoon of chia seeds to your oatmeal, yogurt, salad or smoothie!
