Advisory Board Member
Susan has a B.S. in Math from S.U.N.Y. Brockport and is working on a Masters in Computer Science from S.U.N.Y. IT. She was diagnosed with CKD 5 in March of 2012, and started dialysis July 28, 2012. After trying several different dialysis modalities, Susan found home dialysis to be the right prescription for her and began HHD in March 2016.
Throughout this time, she and her husband monitored her diet with software that she began developing in 2012. Her software program, Kidney Diet Central, helps people eat the foods they like while staying within their dietary guidelines. Along the way, they discovered that the tracking information provided by the software, allows the doctor to fine tune the dialysis prescription, which contributes to feeling even better!
