Hi! I’m Kim, the face behind The Low Iodine Dietitian.
I have been a Registered Dietitian for 10 years. I have worked in hospital settings as well as long term care. I have lived around the country, but currently reside in the Denver, Colorado area with my husband and 4 kids. I enjoy cooking, reading, hiking, skiing, riding my bike, and laughing with good friends and family. I love the outdoors and delicious food.
Over 10 years ago, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. It has been an interesting road, with many ups and downs. (Read my full story here.) Life through treatment and beyond can be challenging, but I have found it easier to navigate with my nutrition background. I am passionate about sharing that knowledge with you and helping you on this journey!
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to contact me with any questions.
Why should you trust nutrition information from Low Iodine Dietitian?
All posts and recipes on this blog are written, tested, and analyzed by Kimberly Marsh. Kimberly has been a Registered Dietitian for 10 years and has a Masters Degree in Clinical Nutrition. To achieve the Registered Dietitian credential, Kimberly had to complete a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited dietetics program, complete 1,200 hours of supervised practice, and pass the national RD registration exam. Additionally, Kimberly must complete 75 hours of continuing educating every 5 years to maintain this credential. The use of the RD or RDN credential is a legally protected title, unlike the term “nutritionist”. Kimberly is an active member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. More information on the RD credential and the Academy can be found here.
All posts and recipes will be based on the best scientific research or databases available. However, even nutrition labels are only accurate within a certain percentage. Additionally, iodine content of foods is not always available. The guidelines for following a low iodine diet found on thyca.org and other science based databases will be followed for recipes and meal plans on this site. All recipes have been personally tested by Kimberly (and her family) for taste, reproducibility, and acceptance for adults and kids.
