I'm Diana Bruen
The PKD Dietitian! I know the importance of understanding labs, looking at trends, and using them both to better impact PKD health & care.
With both private clients and PKD Nutrition Academy students I always hear that our lab work is invaluable. The Labs module in the Academy is ALWAYS a favorite. Many Academy graduates have shared they believe it should be available as a stand-alone class for the PKD Community. Yup, it's that powerful. Master Your Labs is just that!
I am giving you my 4-Step Framework, plus all the guides and tools you need, to once and for all understand your labs for PKD and put that knowledge to use for better outcomes.
