Take Your Nutrition To The Next Level with At Home Urine Tests with Melisa Karabeyoglu

Have you ever wanted to take a test at home to get an idea of your nutrition status? 

In this episode of The Dr. Kinney Show, I sat down with Melisa Karabeyoglu to talk about a company she works for, Vivoo that provides at-home urine testing services that can give you so much insight into what’s happening inside your body. 

Melisa Karabeyoglu is a USA-registered dietitian as well as a certified dietitian nutritionist by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. She serves as the Chair Elect for the International Affiliate of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics; and received distinguished leadership awards for her work.

She is the nutrition and wellness expert at Vivoo. She’s passionate about spreading wellness, and accessibility to features that help connect users to their bodies, and therefore she is very proud to be working with a company that has amazing ideologies and beliefs.

At Vivoo, they aim to improve the overall wellness of users by offering them simple, practical, and at-home test services. We all know that by being busy, we can overlook many aspects of health. She had increased her inflammation by being overly busy or focused on excelling in academics. At Vivoo, they seek to empower clients to create long-lasting health and lifestyle changes so they become their OWN nutritionists.


In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 


  • How Melisa got started in nutrition
  • How Vivoo works
  • The data you can get from these tests
  • What it means when your numbers are off
  • How caffeine impacts your body
  • How the PH of your urine can impact your health
  • How this tool can help you reconnect with your body
  • The stress levels in America 
  • Why your body needs salt 


I hope you enjoyed this conversation with Melisa! It’s amazing how much you can find out about your nutrition and health with tests like these. If you are interested in trying out Vivoo for yourself, visit their website and make sure to use the code ERIN30 for 30% off your order.
