Understanding Your Kidney Test Results

The 4 Phase Method For Improving Your Kidney Test Results

What if you could go from OVERWHELMED to CONFIDENT about your CKD in a matter of a few hours?

Tell Me If This Sounds Like You...

  • Overwhelmed by the fact of being diagnosed with CKD and you don’t understand what the doctor is talking about.

  • Found out having CKD through lab test report (your doctor didn’t mention it) but don’t know what to do next.

  • Anxious about lab results.

  • Not sure if you are improving or on the verge of dialysis

  • Your doctor doesn’t have the time to answer {all} your questions.

  • You are wondering how serious your condition is.

  • You are unsure if dietary restrictions/limitations are important right now


If that sounds familiar, you are in the right place.

But what if there were a way to not have those struggles?

That's why I created Understanding Kidney Test Results to give you a way to solve those issues.  

Just imagine if...

  • You could ask targeted and specific questions of your doctor when you look at your lab results.
  • You understood how your kidney disease is progressing and you know how to slow it down.
  • You had clear explanations about your lab results
  • You knew what to change about your diet based on your lab report
  • You understand how labs + meds + diet work together.

So Who Am I?

  • Mathea Ford, RDN, LD, MBA - Owner of Renaldiethq.com and Author of over 15 Books on Kidney Disease
  • Creator of Understanding Kidney Test Results Course
  • I created this course because I have so many people who email or send me messages asking about restrictions in their diets and I can't fully explain why they need to know their lab values in a few sentences.  
  • I've worked one on one and in groups with clients and it's such a wonderful thing to see how when you understand what it all means, you can make better choices.
  • I want you to stop restricting your diet and start eating healthier knowing it's slowing the progression of your kidney disease or stabilizing your dialysis

Comments from current students about their favorite parts of the lessons:

The handouts were extremely helpful

Your very clear oral presentation, examples of lab forms

The charts that I was able to print off and information I should ask my doctor about - especially adding lab work that they didn't do

How to tell if your CKD is progressive

Understanding protein needs

Good info about what potassium is and what it does

Excellent discussion on Vitamin D - I never knew it affected so many things and started to have issues so soon

Wow! I really need to stay on top of tracking more values than I thought so I can make sure I am getting what I need.

Got Questions?  We've Got Answers!

Why Isn't This A Bigger Investment?

I want to make this affordable and accessible to as many people as possible.  It's truly an education that is worth over 10X the cost because you are saving time and your health. 

Is this right for me?

    If you have CKD or are caring for someone with CKD, this is for you.  This is taught at a level a patient or friend can understand, not a medical professional

What is the refund policy?

Due to the digital nature of this course, we have a 14 day satisfaction guarantee.  Please be aware of this policy and ask any questions you have prior to purchasing.  Use the Contact Us button at the bottom right of the page.  We will answer promptly.

Can you review my labs and give me recommendations?

I cannot do that because of limitations on my time and liability.  This course teaches you how to look at your labs and ask better questions and understand your dietary and other necessary changes.  It is your responsibility to talk to your doctor or other health care provider prior to making any changes to your medications and diet.

I live outside the US, will the lab information make any sense for me?

Right now, I will provide reference information based on US measurements.  But, you will know your normal values from your own lab report.  The information is still relevant to you.  You will be able to understand what affects the lab values and how to improve your health regardless of the measurement values.  The information is evidence based and relies on national and international guidelines for recommendations.

Is this a replacement for my doctor visits?

This is NOT medical advice and does not replace your doctor or physician or any other healthcare provider.  It is your responsibility to talk to your doctor or other health care provider prior to making any changes to your medications and diet.

How is this different than the information sheet my doctor provides?

It's a supplement to what your doctor provides.  Usually your provider gives you your labs at your appointment (or you might review online after the appointment) and the explanation might be brief.  You get the results and the "normal" levels, but nothing about what to do next.  This course will help you discover what types of things to ask your doctor about related to specific labs and what changes might result in an improvement.

I like to read information, not watch videos.

While nothing will be mailed to you - all information is online and available 24/7.  You also will have transcripts if you are having difficulty hearing or understanding or just prefer to read instead of listening.  All .pdfs are Printer Friendly.  You can also watch the videos on tablets or smart phones.

What will happen after I purchase?

Once you purchase, you will get access to the members area, where you will be able to login and watch the video training immediately and you will have access to all the modules.  It will always be available and you can watch and learn what you need to and leave the rest.

Do I have to attend the online course at a certain time?

No, this course is designed for you to work at your own pace and only watch / listen to what you need.  It will be made available all at once and you will have lifetime access to all of the course and any future updates.

Do Any Of These Sound Like You?

Just Diagnosed with CKD? 

You need to know how quickly your CKD is going to progress and if you need to limit everything or just a few things. Waiting on your nephrologist appointment is taking for ever and your Internal Medicine doctor doesn't have the information you need.  Learning what those labs mean can allow you to get started understanding what is coming next.

Kidney Disease and Diabetes?

You might have known that diabetes can cause CKD or even ESRD but you didn't expect it to happen to you.  Now you need to pay attention to a lot of diet information that has you wanting to pull your hair out.  What do you do?  Learning what is important for someone with diabetes and kidney failure can help you focus on where to start.  Start now with understanding how to improve your health. 

Caregiver of Someone with CKD / ESRD?

Thanks so much for taking care of your family or friend.  It's hard when you don't know what to do next or what the information means.  You might not even accompany them to the medical appointments.  But you can see the pain and suffering, and if you knew what to do to improve their health, you would.  So if you know what the labs mean and what to do next, you can help.  And you will be able to see how great it feels to know you can make a difference.

Wondering if you can just do it yourself and figure it out?  Sure, I bet you can.  Here's what that might look like:

  • Might take weeks to get into the nephrologist to ask questions about your values (or days for the back and forth with the nurse)
  • Not as ready to advocate for yourself because you don't know the right questions
  • Spend time googling info and following a generally low salt, low protein diet without the benefit of additional changes you could make
  • Wondering if you are doing all you can to make the best possible changes to your diet and health

Using this course, Understanding Your Kidney Test Results, can make your life much easier.  Here's what that might look like:

  • Go from overwhelmed to confident in your understanding of what your kidney health labs show
  • Make changes that are evidence based from expert knowledge of how your kidneys and other organs are working together
  • Slow the progression of CKD using your actual labs so you make targeted changes

What is the refund policy?

Imagine if you could go into your next doctor's office visit feeling completely in control...

You could be in 1-3 months when you go to your appointment to review your latest lab results.  Or even just login to review them.  You don't feel anxious or nervous.  You are confident that you know what you can do regardless of where you are starting.  You know what to do based on your numbers, or if you don't you know what the numbers mean you can start asking the doctor about solutions or changes instead of googling for hours and wondering if you can believe what is on the internet.  

You don't have to worry.  You will have all of the information to review again.  You can watch the videos related to those labs.  You can relax.
