Ostomy Nutrition Coach

Founder, The Ostomy Dietitian

Ostomy Nutrition Coach

Whether you’ve just received your ostomy, are planning for a reversal, or have been living with a permanent ostomy for some time – there’s one thing you cannot ignore: having an ostomy directly impacts the way you eat and drink.

And whether you are trying to reintroduce fruits and vegetables, manage output consistency, prevent dehydration, or reach a healthy weight – you know that the process just isn’t as simple with a stoma.

The Ostomy Dietitian works with ostomates to optimize their nutrition and hydration to help them reach their goals and improve their quality of life.

Nutrition Coach for Ostomates

Amalia Karlin, MS, RDN

Hi, I’m Amalia!

I’m a Registered Dietitian specializing in ileostomy and colostomy nutrition. I help ostomates overcome barriers to adequate nutrition and hydration. My goal is to empower my clients by providing them with the knowledge, skills, and confidence necessary to care for their nutrition.

As a Registered Dietitian, I incorporate a wealth of evidence-based knowledge into my practice. Coaching individuals with ostomies requires a deep understanding of the workings of a surgically altered gastrointestinal tract. It is important for me to meet clients where they are at in their surgical recovery.

Amalia As An Ostomate

Working as a dietitian for over 8 years is only part of my connection to ostomates. I am a permanent ostomate myself, of over 5 years. I went from a temporary loop ileostomy to a permanent loop by way of a total proctocolectomy. I then had my ostomy revised to an end stoma. I am no stranger to the nutrition considerations when recovering from surgery.

I am also a mother of two young children. Navigating nutrition and hydration with my ostomy and with multiple mouths to feed has taught me a tremendous amount about making food work for us and not the other way around.
