Dr. George Bakris Part 4, The Meaning of False Positives in an At-Home Kidney Test

In part 4 of this exclusive video, Dr. Bakris contemplates the rate of potential false positives in an at-home kidney test for microalbuminuria, the possible causes of false positives and the need for patient education in the use of such tests.

Dr. George Bakris is a referral nephrologist, board-certified hypertension specialist, and professor of medicine and director of ASH Comprehensive Hypertension Center at The University of Chicago. He specializes in kidney disease as it relates to diabetes and blood pressure issues. He is an expert at interpreting ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, a technique that gives physicians a more accurate reading of a patient’s blood pressure by taking numerous measurements of a patient’s blood pressure over a 24-48 hour period.
