Natalie Hellman, MS, RD, LDN works as a registered dietitian at two dialysis clinics in Nashville, Tennessee. Before discovering her love for renal nutrition, Natalie had worked at a cardiac hospital and at an eating disorder/addiction facility. At her current job as a dialysis dietitian, she enjoys helping her patients interpret their lab results and educating them about how the foods they choose can impact their health and lifestyle. In working with an elderly population, Natalie has become very aware of the importance of fostering healthy habits earlier in life to reduce future health issues. For the reason, she is extremely interested in researching and learning more about nutrition as preventative medicine.
