Hi, I'm Sue Emeny, and I help dialysis newbies learn how to eat and choose the right type of dialysis when their kidneys fail. Knowing how to eat and why allows you to avoid harmful side effects caused by eating improperly with failed kidneys.

If you want to know how to eat,  not eat too much phosphorus, potassium, or sodium, get good labs, and feel better, then I can definitely help you.

I am the best at explaining what a kidney diet is and how to follow it, as well as the different types of dialysis that are available. Some of my accomplishments include:


B.S. Math
Software Development
Software Engineering

Work History

Over 35 years of software development and engineering
Business Applications development
Last 12 years in a government research lab

Awards, Titles, & Designations

Other Info

My kidneys failed in the spring of 2012.
I started dialysis July 28, 2012.
I endured several life-threatening infections and came close to death a couple of times.
I tried different types of dialysis before finding the right one.
With my husband’s help, we figured out the kidney diet and its relationship to dialysis.
Then, I developed software to quickly find the amount of nutrients in my food, which meant I could stay within my dietary limits and feel better while eating what I liked.

Fun Stuff

My husband and I kept horses that we used to trail ride right from home
I got in a sword fight and immediately lost
Being a female professional in the 70's was tough... enough said.
Getting medical clearance for my pilot's license with less than perfect kidneys was a challenge

When you want to quickly see how much potassium, phosphorus, sodium, and even water is in your food, most of what you need is help, instruction, and encouragement from someone who has "been there and done that!"

I can definitely help you know what to eat, know how to eat the right amounts of phosphorus, potassium, or sodium.  This will help you get good labs, avoid harmful side effects, and ultimately feel better. 

Always check with your health provider and/or dietitian before making any changes to your diet or prescription.
