Renlund was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Mats Ake Renlund and Mariana Andersson. Renlund's parents were from Sweden and had emigrated to the United States so they could marry in an LDS Church temple. For three years while he was a teenager, Renlund lived with his parents in Sweden where his father was a building missionary for the LDS Church.
From 1972 to 1974 Renlund returned to Sweden where he served as a full-time missionary for the LDS Church. He received a bachelor's degree in chemistry and a M.D., both from the University of Utah. He then went on to do a six-year residency program at Johns Hopkins University.
In 1986, Renlund became a professor at the University of Utah. From 1991 to 2009, he was the medical director of the Utah Transplantation Affiliated Hospitals Cardiac Transplant Program. In 2000, he also became director of the Heart Failure Prevention and Treatment Program at Intermountain Health Center in Salt Lake City.
Renlund is married to Ruth Lybbert, a daughter of Merlin R. Lybbert, who was a general authority of the LDS Church. The Renlunds are the parents of one daughter. Ruth Renlund was a partner of the law firm of Dewsnup, King & Olsen.
In April 2009, Renlund became a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy, a full-time ecclesiastical position. Later in 2009, Renlund and his wife moved to Johannesburg, South Africa where he served first as a counselor and then from 2011 to 2014 as president of church's Africa Southeast Area.
